Zenith Pilot Special 41MM 1930's 15''' Center Seconds Gilt Radium Patina DialZenith
For auction is a 1930's Zenith Special pilots watch center seconds black patina radium dial caliber 15''' original thick crystal. This is a sterile civilian variant. These watches have just never gotten their due; they are so cool, important, distinct and quality but the wire lugs and general pocket watch lineage have probably retarded their rise in value. That all said they are so cool; for roughly what it costs for a new version you can buy the original which is a head scratching proposition.
