(Case size chart)
TCDD was founded as a state company in 1927 by the new Turkish Republic to take over existing railways in Anatolia and to develop them in accordance with the needs of the country. Prior to the Republic, the Ottoman Empire awarded all concessions to private railways companies. A number of watches from various makers have been commissioned to the Turkish railway over the years and carry the TCDD stamp. These have become quite sought after by watch collectors as a result. This Zenith is such an example, a manual wind watch dating c.1942. The stainless steel case is in good condition for its age with just minor scratches. The domed back of the watch shows the TCDD logo inscription. The dial is not perfect and has some spotting and deteriation. Beautiful clean Zenith movement running well and keeping excellent time. Presented on a brown leather strap. Measures 34mm in diameter.
