A myth, a legend... Something I saw some 13 years ago, and I missed the opportunity, with big, huge regrets. 

One of the best manual winding chronometers, here. 



This would be a perfect watch also nowadays. Wonderful dial, by the way…

I’m not smitten by the dial design(just personal taste), but the movement is just gorgeous.

Not just pleasing to the eyes, but also a precision workhorse. The bevels are not shabby eider...
Thank you for reminding me about this rare bird!

Pleasure, Z.

An honest watch...

...with a balance wheel the size of a dinner plate : ) I hate tiny balance wheels fyi...

Good one about the balance wheel size. ;)

I can understand your frustration when you realize you missed it, what a watch ! I did not know that some Favre-Leuba were equiped with Zenith Chronometer movements... What a watch, thanks for sharing !
