    Zenith Rainbow Elite 670 Ė 1998
    39mm; 9mm thick

    Worn every day for 18 years, now rarely gets an outing. Find it hard to read given I now need reading glasses.

    There's the 2016-on limited edition (1000) Zenith Heritage Cronometro TIPO CP-2:

    https://www.zenith-watches.com/en_en...egendary-watch

    - and as shown in CatalystGuy's post above. A homage to the Cairelli-Roma watch. 'Automatic' on the dial, solid caseback.

    Around the same time they issued a limited edition (50) one for PuristSPro, as shown in MartynJC's post above and in his post @

    https://forum.tz-uk.com/showthread.p...of-fifty-gt-gt

    - 'Cronometro' on the dial, clear caseback.

    And given the success of those they now make the the Zenith Cronometro CP-2 Flyback, 2018-

    https://www.zenith-watches.com/en_en...flyback-1.html

    - 'Flyback' on the dial, clear caseback.

    Not the best pic but the Rainbow got sold to fund the incoming Pilot big date.



    And I have this in storage so no DIY pics.

    Actually it was mistakenly revealed af Basel in 2016, and under embargo to October 2016, I recieved one of the first around the October that year (when everyone was clamoring for the new Daytona)

    Sadly LE re-issue, means nothing because they followed the speedy model and started churning out variants left right and centre.

    I postef this before, but hereís the variant list:
    -October 2016, launch of CP2
    -Purists Pro CP2 (cronmetero on dial)
    -Unknown CP2 with olive nato (could be part of the original 1000, but has a completely different reference)
    -aged bronze
    -aged steel
    -Watches of Switzelrand LE (reverse panda dial)

    Thanks for this endo. I've edited my post re the 2016 release.

    I wonder whether what you call the 'Unknown CP-2' had the ?/1000 number engraving on the back. Presumably not if it has a different reference.

    Thanks, it is a series one De Luca - the caseback ref is 01.0040.400 - which is the same for all De Lucas, but its proper reference is 01.0042.400 - mine is an earlier small logo example from 1988 (I guess).

    No probs

    The pictures i found in mid 2017 did have ?/1000
    Same dial as the re-issue, but It Came on an Olive fabric strap rather than the croc.

    Could mean a few things, sales on the original didnít do well and they split the run into to two variants, they offered the fabric strap in some regions where the standard gator strap wasnít fashionable, or just did a second batch of LEs and werenít transparent about it.
    Iíll have a root around, i saved the refence numbers somewhere.

    Good stuff, and appreciated. I do like that olive strap, and thought I might get a quote on it from WoS next time I'm in London.

    A favourite of mine - bought off TZ a few years ago and second hand it is very good VFM. El primero movement, lovely matt dial etc.

    Superb work endo, many thanks for that. I've made a separate note of it. I certainly wouldn't have known that the olive strap version was a different ref and a sep LE-count.
