Dear friends
here's another friend from funky 70ies
The cool Zenith ref 01 - 1190 - 290
rightfully named by Italian collectors Disco volante - The flying saucer.

none

The crown is "integral part" of the case

none

Buckle to have it complete none

none

even strap

none

Back plain and simple...actually begs for engraving...
Behind is 2562PC movement beating at 28 800 A/h

none

and now....drum roll....the profile that shows why Disco volante is rightful nickname...no lugs baby none

none

Cool markers and star on the dial...I like that so much!
Navy blue dial...like that as well!
Date at Zenith position

none

Come fly with me, let's fly, let's fly away
If you can use some exotic booze
There's a bar in far Bombay
Come on and fly with me, let's fly, let's fly away
F.Sinatra

Cheers

P.S: After exhausting review I deserve appropriate cold one none

A lot of superb details, on this watch. At the exception of one ... The bloody date.

Well...yes and no...dial would be much more sober without...but... when you deal with simple vintage pieces from Zenith you know that in majority of cases you'll end up with date on so called Zenith position...in the end is cool trademark Cheers D

Disclaimer: This article does not intend to promote or to undermine any aspects of the watch, and is purely a study of the movement out of interest by a non-professional hobbyist. Credit where its due that FP Journe made a new split-second watch for Only Watch 2017, and (unlikely) might see the possibility that this may appear as a regular production piece!
