1918 Gold Plated Zenith pocket watch, 23S, 17 jewels Adjusted, Cal 19''' N.V.S.I.
Keeping time to -28 seconds a day.
This is a beautiful pocket watch by Zenith with a lovely, double sunk enamel dial in perfect condition. The gold plated case is in very good condition with no wear of the plating. The movement is exceptional with gold chatons on the jewels, as well as Geneve stripe finishing. This variant of finish is much nicer than the standard gilt finish found on the same Zenith movements of the era.
The pocket watch is all original, apart from the replacement crystal. Overall it is in excellent condition and will make an ideal addition to a collection.
