Up for grabs today is this mighty ZentRa Ancre all-steel manual wind watch in great condition and full of '70s panache.
Case: The all-steel case is in excellent shape showing just minimal signs of wear. The watch measures a respectable 35mm (37mm with crown) and 41mm lug-to-lug giving this Zentra plenty of presence on the wrist. I love those exaggerated, swooping lugs and the raised bezel ring. At just 10mm thick, this is a watch that's sporty but can still fit comfortably under a shirt or jacket.
Dial: I love this deep blue dial in perfect condition with very little signs of wear. The orange indices at 6, 9, and 12 match perfectly with the bright sweep hand, and the rally-style chapter ring gives the watch a sporty vibe. The fat white stick hands feature pops of red and black making them both legible and distinctive.
Movement: This gentleman runs on a rugged and reliable A Schild 1950/51 manual-wind movement. The movement is clean, and though the service history is unknown, spot-on timekeeping means this one is ready to wear and enjoy. Date is quickset by rotating hour hand between 8:00PM and Midnight repeatedly.
This ZentRa is mounted on a handsome 20 mm brown croc-grain strap which helps bring out the dark blue dial and orange highlights beautifully.
