Rules: Postings must be an ad announcing an intent to sell, buy or trade. Full item description and photo(s) must be posted within the message here, not as links to other websites. Links to online auctions and other sites: Links to online auctions, dealer sites or other listings of items are permitted, but you should be careful to ensure that such listings will comply with our other ChronoTrader Policies. In addition, we request that sellers linking to online auctions or listings offer some benefit or accomodation to ChronoTrader readers (for example, some discount or an undertaking to end an auction early, to keep a watch "in the family"). Photos must be of the actual item for sale in its present condition. No counterfeit or replica products. No post for the same item may be repeated within 7 days, except to lower the asking price. Commercial dealers are limited to three unique posts per day. [More...]
The Zenith El Primero A386 was one of the first commercially released automatic chronographs in 1969.
There are three different types of the A386. Mark I, II & III
This Mark I, the rarest and fewest made, estimated 200ea. Still has all the original parts including the black leather strap, buckle and box. The case has never been polished and no service parts have ever been installed. Noticeable is the blue colored minute sub dial that lost some of its coloring over the 49 years. This can be desirable for some collectors. The movement was recently professionally serviced/overhauled and comes with a one year warranty and a three day return, if not as described.
Asking $19'500 will consider reasonable offers
I am located in SoCal and look forward to your inquiries and any questions you might have.
