Zenith El Primero Chronograph


SKU: 645ce343d3 Categories: , ,


Up for grabs is the immensely popular Reference A386 Zenith El Primero chronograph, circa 1969-1971.  Only 2,500 examples of the A386 reference were produced during this time, between 1969 and 1971.  Featuring a tri-color dial and straight-lug case, this watch is a true classic, which is why Zenith reissued it several years back.

This Zenith El Primero is in excellent condition.  The case is razor sharp and unpolished.  The dial is free of any flaws, in near-perfect condition.  The original tritium lume is still present on both dial and hands, aged to a darker brown/green color, as is common for this model.  The chronograph hand has been relumed.

This watch features its original “ladder” Zenith-signed, Gay Freres bracelet, with correct “ZJ” endlinks.  The serial number is still visible on the caseback, and reads 707D174 (“Mark II”).
