Zenith Pocket Watch
 
Last summer I was given a Zenith pocket watch by a friend. Its about 16size, in running conditon. The movement serial number is 2,710,552. Would anyone know the year of manufacture of this watch? Thanks

I'm unaware of any serial number records, but Atlam's (www.atlams-watches.co.uk) is currently offering two Zeniths, one w/serial no 1,678,557 with a "circa 1900" date, and another that's #2,252,100 with a "circa 1918" date. Pieces of Time (www.antique-watch.com) in the UK has # 2,452,663 its dating to "circa 1920." So I'd say yours is "circa early 1920s" for a guess.

Wayne,

Here's a Zenith that's currently for sale on the 'bay, SN 2,643,303, with what is claimed to be the original receipt, dated 1925. The case is also inscribed with a 1925 date, so that should narrow it down a bit more.

And Merry X-mas to you, too!
