There are many modern Seiko Watches around in the market but good vintage pieces are hard to come by. I found this piece during my trip to PNG which I bought it from the market place. This piece is unique as it is a case within a case. The era of this watch is 1940. I suspect this piece was taken from some Japanese Soldier during the battle in PNG.

In 1893, A self winding watch with reserve power indicator was designed and put into mass production by a swiss watch factory.
Here below is a typical movement used in one of the many self-winding watches made in Switzerland today.

Found this piece on a Vintage Shop, it is a nice marine timekeeper piece or chronometer that is used as a standard portable time to tells its location until the modern era with high tech equipment such as GPS that eventually replaces them.
In Switzerland, only timepieces certified and tested by the COSC and meet certain precision standards may display the word 'Chronometer.'
The brand ZENITH has been around pre-1945 and unlike the many modern brands that are post 1945.
