This new Zeno Regulator watch is one of the most intriguing pieces that I’ve seen from the Basel manufacturer.
The family-owned Zeno watch company is well known for making excellent watches that are usually produced in small quantities, all of which are made in Basel, Switzerland.
This is a manual winding regulator watch with hand assembled New Old Stock Perseux 7040 movement that dates back to the late 1960’s – Of course it’s been completely re-worked to make sure that it’s as good as new – it looks great through the display back.
It’s the highly unusual regulator dial that makes this watch special: Unlike a ‘normal’ watch face, with this regulator you read the hours from the sub dial at 12 o’clock, the minutes indication in the center and the seconds on the sub dial at 6 o’clock. The lovely little red hand reads that date from an outside date track.
Zeno only made 160 of these watches, 80 in black and 80 in white, and I think they’re spectacular.
Ok, so it’s not easy to quickly read the time on a Zeno Regulator but that’s not the point – this is a superb looking Swiss Made dress watch that is totally different from pretty much everything else out there. If this dial had “Patek Philippe” written on it and someone told me it was £50,000, I might just believe it, so at a little over £1,000, it’s bargain.
