Zenith El Primero A384 w/Outstanding Tropical Dial - *Unpolished*
- Unit price
The Zenith El Primero owes its historical importance to its movement. The caliber 3019 PHC was the first automatic chronograph movement with a high frequency of 36,000 VPH. Even Rolex later modified the El Primero movement for its Daytona chronograph, which is why it is now referred to as the "Zenith Daytona" by collectors. It is estimated that only 2600 of these A348 references were produced from the late 1960s to early 1970s.
When thinking of vintage chronographs its hard not to place tropical dials at the top of the list for beauty and desirability. This particular Zenith has take on a remarkable milk chocolate tropical patina that will make any collector come back for more. We believe these pieces to be a good relative value considering their historical importance and connection to Rolex, as well as where other tropical watches trade. Between the unpolished case/bracelet and warm dial, this example has it all and more.
