There most certainly are
Nowhere fashionable. Eastern Standard, outside the Hotel Commonwealth (about three blocks from Fenway Park). Good service, non-hipster New American menu, spacious 1930s-ish interior. It's that place you keep going back to when the flavors of the month get tedious. The manager, Andrew, has always been very good to me. I've never found a piece of grit or broken shell in one of their shucked oysters. That's a pretty rare level of care.
Hi Boston, thanks for the info. Yes, I'm familiar with it. I stayed at the hotel about 2 years ago. I've only eaten breakfast at the hotel, but I'll have to try Eastern Standard for dinner sometime. Thanks!
Congrats again your your wonderful find! Yes, I am aware that they have made watches outside of the El Primero chronograph based pieces. I was merely commenting that its nice to see something from them that isn't a chronograph for a change and in an interesting case shape. Most Zenith's I see are El Primero chronos. Its a fantastic movement, so I can see why it is so popular and well respected, its just nice to see something less common.
Rolex did have a strong advertising campaign, but I think Zenith's biggest commercial issue was caused by trade mark problems and brand recognition involving the Zenith television brand. So a lot of people in the US during the 1970s, 1980s, etc. didn't know anything about the watch brand. To be honest, I only learned of the brand about 20 something years ago, when I found out the then current Rolex Daytona's movement was based on the El Primero movement. Even beyond that I don't believe there were any store carrying it in my part of the US until maybe the very late 1990s.
I could be wrong but I believe the square Kennedy watch was an Omega.
Anyway, great find thanks for sharing some pix with us.
That is a lot of sugar right there; really mouth-watering. The dessert and BLNR aren't bad either.
I don't know what to say or where to look. Why would you say such a thing?!
The whole Zenith Electronics/TVs etc trademark issues essentially made Zenith watches a forgotten brand in the US for at least 20+ years.
There are some very cool vintage Zeniths in that link. As for the bad ones...the 70's was a tough time for watches. While we got some iconic designs like the RO, Nautilus, and IWC Ing. Jumbo SL, there were so many bad designs that I suppose were what watch companies thought buyers needed to go with their polyester leisure suits. Cheers!
