1960s Zenith “Golden Panda” chronograph ref. G179

Zenith is famous these days for its El Primero caliber, but did you know the manufacture produced a line of high grade manual chronograph calibers,such as the 146D (2 registers) and his great brother, the 146HP (3 registers) ?

This model, in mint condition, features a striking golden and anthracite gray dial, the kind of color association we are more used to see on gold Rolex Daytona 6263.
