Zenith Pilot men's watch from 1950's. Caliber 120 is one of the top level manufactures developed by the ZENITH brand. It runs with ultimate precision and is therefore a beloved piece amongst collectors. Insiders easily recognize the movement by the "crown" wheel.
The 120 caliber was originally invented to serve pilots. When the crown is pulled out, the watch stops running. We refer to this as the second stop hacking mechanism.Pilots used it to set their time accordingly at the start of a flight action. Many believe that this high quality movement deservers a second place after the almighty cal. 135 in the ranking of manual winded movements. 100.000 produced between 1953 - 1963. Year of production: 1950's. Bracelet material: New leather band. The watch is working but has no servicing records, so I cannot guarantee accurate timekeeping.
