The Striking 10th

I was just looking – purely by chance – at an SOTC post from more than two years ago and couldn’t help but notice that despite all the changes since then I still have two of the watches featured at that time; one is the King of G’s (the JDM GW-5000) and the other is Zenith’s wonderful Striking 10th.

I’m not sure that the 10th is the most practical watch from a functional perspective, and personally find a regular tachymeter a little more useful. However, from a technical standpoint it’s a wonderful example of watchmaking, and the movement is of course quite beautiful. Mind you, the dial’s not too shabby either!
