    16520 zenith Daytona franken

    Hello all, I've been mostly an AP guy but after trying on a friend's Daytona I decided that it is THE watch to own, no matter what other watches one owns. So when a franken 16520 came up for sale, I pounced on it, mostly to try out the watch and wear it around and see if my affection for the brand deepens. And God help me, it looks like the addiction has begun. I know that this is an older generation build but I like the black subdial rings of the white zenith dial.

    This build has:
    - gen mkIV dial
    - gen hands
    - gen case and caseback
    - gen 16520 bezel
    - gen 25-295 crystal without etched crown
    - gen P402 pushers
    - gen 703 crown and gen crown tube
    - gen 503B end links
    - gen 78390 bracelet
    - zenith el primero 3019 movement with gen Rolex 4030 rotor, plus all the necessary conversion parts and labour.
    On to the pics, I will take more as I take it apart for servicing if anyone is interested.
    Thank you for looking!

    Glad you're liking it brother! Wear it in good health!


    TitleistRolex: my question wasn't to ask "Hey QueDick can you tell any flaws of this watch or that watch?!"

                Glad you are getting into Rolex now Legend. When I started getting into AP I learnt a lot from your posts.
                Almost totally gen, I bet that didn't come too cheap.

                  Thank you guys I'm a Rolex noob so please pardon me if I ever get the nomenclature or details wrong. I'm yet learning about this stellar and fantastic brand. [MENTION=108529]Sogeha[/MENTION] thank you kindly but even for AP I'm no guru but yet a learner. I am happy if you found my posts useful just as I found many posts here to be of equal helpfulness. I'm sure that we could learn from one another as our bailiwicks are all different and diverse.

                            It's strange for me to make such a comment for you in a non-AP section
