Rolex Zephyr models

As a fan of Rolex's "Zephyr" models, I wanted to put together a coherent timeline/list of variants. Two things define a Zephyr: a crosshair dial, and one of these two bezels types:

There are some Rolexes with only a Zephyr bezel, or only a crosshair dial, and I'll leave it to you to decide if those are true "Zephyrs," as that's a collector term and not an official Rolex term. I'll try to include them all in this list.

Men's Oyster models

1956-1960: Ref. 6582

1960-1967: 1008/1009

1967-1987: 1038
(first "Guill. Ind" bezel rather than "Guill. Fant")

1969-1973: 1512
(only Zephyr with a date)

Ladies' models

1971-1983: 6724
1983-1996: 67243

Non-Oyster models

1962-1966: 9919/9522

Mid-1960's: 3694 pendant watch

Misc. crosshair dials

1950's: 656x models with crosshair dials

1950's: Tudor 79xx models with crosshair dials

Some Tru-Beats have crosshair dials too:
