Until one day, Zenith discovered a box of 400-odd movements in 2009-2010 and released a special limited edition.

Based on the serial numbers on the COSC certificates (checked with a couple of other WUS, Watchprosite forum members) of old deck chronometers with this movement, the movements were indeed 40-50 year old movements!!

Not wearable regularly - but definitely a collectorís piece!!
thanks for that info
HOWCOOL!

Every time it is time to pull out my Rolex DSSD Deep Blue (I canít believe I managed to land one without ANY premium straight from the dealer!), I can stop marveling at how comfortable it is, the dimensions are just perfect and how solid it feels!

I am in LOVE with this watch!

Nice watch! Fantastic book.

I started my collection in the ninety's with a Breitling Chronomat Chronograph after owning a couple of Seiko's for daily use. 20 years later it was about time to continue my passion for the watch.
Followers were : TAG Caliber 16 Link, , Breitling Chronomat Chronograph Special Edition "Blue Impulse", TAG Cal.5 Link, TAG Aquaracer Cal.5, , Breitling B1, Breitlling B2, TAG Monaco Special Edition, Omega Seamaster Profesional.
Then it was time for Rolex : 2016 Datejust II 41 Blue dial, 2017 GMT Master II BLNR and recently the Hulk.
