    Zeno's on TZ.

    What models do we have on the forum?

    Particularly interested in the old stuff like 'SeaHunters' etc which are long gone sadly...

    'Only' the Zex, I'm afraid, but still a favourite. Bought May '14 worn regularly and still running at +5s/day.

    No pics, sadly. Must do something about that...

    I've had the Sea hunter and the army models.Now I'm drawn to the PRS3 Zeno
    model which is part of a group buy on the Sales section here.Could anyone please provide info about the lume on this steel version please .How strong is it compared with say a PRS18 or PRS25 ?

    I can take a lume shot later, but I've owned neither of the PRS models you mention to compare.

    Thanks for that James .Lume looks quite strong but difficult to evaluate without comparison or someone's experience of comparison .

    New they are £400 now, so depends on condition but £250 seems to what they go for pre owned.

    Please Note: It is possible that Griswold may know nothing whatsoever about horology. It's even possible that he has never even owned a watch. It is also highly possible the he has a strange imagination. His wife insists he would be far better off paying more attention to taking his medication on time.

    A poor man's Railmaster/Ranchero:



    More pictures here, Google translate might be your friend:

    (short version, it is a combination of NOS-parts from Zeno, Explorer and Sea Hunter, I had Roland Kemmner make into a watch for me...)

    I'd certainly consider snapping up a used one for £250 in good order.

    I used to have a Unitas powered 47mm "Observer" which I regret selling on. Think I sold it a few years ago on here for £180 - practically a giveaway!

    Zeno Bubbleback

    I recall Zeno used to do a little bubbleback. I've had a WTB here and have been keeping an eye online for one but with no luck. I wonder if Zeno are likely to revive them.

    Been asked a few times about them. I doubt they will remake them.

    Thanks for that. I'll keep an eye out for a used example. One came up on eBay recently but must have sold offline as it disappeared.
