If this watch can really be photographed within the valuation limit, then the buyer must have picked it cheap. Cal 410Z movement, but also with the display of the sun, moon and stars. This is a Zenith product from the 1990s. They are good at making chronographs, and with such a harmonious dial design, this thing is definitely worth the price.
The name of the flower font series under the Zenith on the dial is very flattering. At least I am fascinated by such design elements. It may be the reason why I am used to the exaggerated 21st century earth that is about to break down. Whenever this appears on a watch The classic and simple elements can arouse their desire to buy, and the entire watch looks quite simple, which is in line with the aesthetics of the 1990s. However, the final transaction price exceeded HK $ 37,000, which is 50% more than the highest estimated price. However, this is almost close to my own estimation. Who can buy such goods with RMB 20,000 this year?
For many watch additional functions, timekeeping is the closest representative of the function of the watch itself. Because from the perspective of its mission, clocks are used to display time, and recording time is a link that is closest to the important function of the watch itself. The chronograph movement uses a chronograph structure based on a cylindrical wheel system. Of course, since major manufacturers specializing in the development of movements such as FP and ETA have introduced simple chronograph movement structures 1185 and 7750, many small manufacturers These cores can be purchased and then modified and used on their own chronograph.
For modern chronograph technology, such as single-button, flyback, double-tracing hands, etc. are all derived from the basic chronograph movement. Among them, the double chasing hand technology is relatively the most complicated. It realizes the function of iterative timing of two periods by two overlapping central chronograph seconds hands. On the basis of this, Lange has developed a 30-minute cumulative chronograph dial with the same double-track function, which once again pushes the complexity of timing to a higher level.
