Zenith early MK2 / MK2
« 4 Liner / 225 bezel »
« Zenith Daytona » appeared in 1988 with serial R having a floating « cosmograph » word on the MK1 dial. The presented watch belongs to the immediately following dial which is equally characteristic having only 4 lines of text as « officially certified » disappeared! Rolex considered the official certification was less stringent than its own accuracy tests (-2/+2s). But they quickly reconsidered as the mention came back the following year. The MK2 bezel was also specific with an intermediate 225 graduation that no other bezel have. This MK2 configuration was fitted on Zenith Daytona made between serial L2 and L7 (1989/90).
