    Zeno catalogue online

    Zeno has made its catalogue available online for some time now in .pdf format. This catalogue does NOT contain any of the Asia only/eBay only models.

    English version - http://www.zeno-watch.ch/en/ZWBDownload2008.pdf

    and the latest editions for 2009

    http://www.zeno-watch.ch/database/e_index.html

    Nice to see all their stuff in one place (..... :wink: ).

    Pity the photos are so low-res, though. :cry:

    Thanks for the link, well worth a browse.

    Jim :)

    Great to see them here too. I sometimes surf their online catalogue.

    The 3 Carré designs look great - except for the stinking plane.

    The Diver Look Carré I bought years ago and sold to a friend (why Zeno calls it Zeno Army and also Diver Look Carré, I can not fathom). He still wears it and loves it and in my mind too, the design still holds up. A great design with the NABO hands, plus it has a anchor - instead of the stinking plane.

    I like the Stairs and Race models too - except for the stinking plane.

    I would buy any of the above mentioned watches in a heartbeat, were it not for the stinking plane.

    Now if anybody has got the impression that I do not like the stinking cargo plane, they are absolutely right. Why they stick it on there, I do not know. A plane contradicts the design of many of the Zeno models, some of which are retro design and where it makes even less sense to put a modern plane on the dial. Some might say that I am nitpicking, but I just can not look beyond the plane, sorry. The watches are great value for money and I want one or more, but just will not own a watch with that abomination on the dial.

    I have owned the Army Diver (!) too, but sold it off as I got hit by the big watch curse and it is puny.

    I craved the Hercules until I saw it in the flesh. The only Zeno that I have handled among many and been really disappointed about.

    Zeno, can we please have a seperate model range for people with a pathological hate of big fat cargo planes on the dial!

    Rant over - thanks for your patience.

    Hmmm,

    I was going to show you how much I like the plane by posting pictures of all my Zenos, but now I realise that only one of them actually has the plane on it!

    Maybe I don't like the plane after all....

    :D Great pics. THanks.

    I have a problem though: The ones I like most often has the plane on them. I like the top one exept for the plane. The rest I like the design of, but unfortunately they are too small for my taste, as I have been struck by the big watch curse as previously mentioned. I wear a GP GGYC and like big watches; PAM, Anonimo, Glycine Lagunare etc.

    So I am caught between a rock and a hard place; either the Zeno watches has a plane on then or they are way too small for me, like the ones you show. Dont get me wrong; I like Zeno watches if it should have escaped anyones attention (except for the stinking plane).

    Now the bottom one, I really like. There might be a Zeno Omega Dynamic homage in the future for me. Only thing holding med back, is the fact that I would smash the protruding pushers into something in no time flat and bend them beyond repair. That is why i mostly stay away from chrono-type watches. Besides i have no use for the Chrono functions and think that the pushers and chrono dials most often crowd the watch.

    I don't think "nice girls" are what sailors are looking for. :wink:

    The Zeno catalogue link is not 404. Zeno does not publish a price list, like most manufacturers they have different price lists for different countries.

    That's better than the old PDF catalogue. Still has an impressive number of different models, I see. :)

    I enjoy two models of Zeno: the Explorer and army orange.
    Two authentic treasures.

    I've been looking for an Army Orange for months but no joy! If only they'd re-release it
