This amazing Zeno Tennis watch has a mechanical movement to tell the time, but combined with four sub dials and pushers to keep your tennis score!
We have managed to source a few more blue dialed watches coming direct from Zeno. They will be the last we will be able to get. Some are reserved already following this article on Fratello watches.
HOW DO WE DATE THIS WATCH?
From the AS 1977-2 17 jewel hand winding movement production dates we can estimate the date this watch to being made circa 1975. The AS1977 series movements were made between 1972 and 1978. The article on Fratello quotes that only 500 of these Zeno tennis watches were made in 1974, and a further 100 in 1977, so theses watches would have been in one of those batches.
These watches were available with either white or black hands, and this watch is the one with black hands. The watch is new old stock (NOS), meaning it has never been sold nor worn other than for our photographs. The protective sticker is still on the crystal. This is one of three we have bought directly from Zeno watch, so their provenance is faultless. As such the watch is in wonderful condition, with just minor marks from storage and age, so let’s describe how it works. At twelve you have a indicator to see whose serve it is, the top right pusher adds the score of the game and the bottom right pusher sets the number of games on the sub dial nearest to it. The same happens on the left hand side in mirror form. The video below gives you a better insight to this. The white rubber strap might have the smallest of marks, but is still soft and flexible. Zeno have been making watches since 1922.
This watch will be supplied with our branded presentation box and our Certificate of Authenticity.
