Notes

Successor to the CP-1 supplied to the Italian military by BREITLING/ LEONIDAS, the ZENITH CP-2 (CP standing for Cronometro da
Polsa ie wrist chronometer) was produced, according to scholars in approximately 2500 pieces. While some where assigned to the military (those bears the inscriptions MM for Marina Militare, EI for Escercito Italiano or PS for Pubblica Sicurezza) followed by a military assignment number, the rest were never assigned and sold to the general public. This civilian version has been kept in mint condition, showing still the original factory bevel on the lugs, a mint dial with matching patina to the hands and still with some rests of the blue factory paint on the caseback engraving
