In 1969, the world of watchmaking changed forever with the birth of the El Primero, the world’s first high-frequency automatic chronograph caliber. This line of innovative chronographs are today highly coveted by collectors and it is interesting to notice the Zenith recently re-edited some of these iconic models, including this very A385.

Aesthetically, the angular 37mm tonneau-shaped case is a unique design for the era. The polished and faceted sides, the grey smoked dial and the red chronograph hand form a beautiful silhouette on the wrist. Animated by the cal 3019 PHC, this is a pure classic and a staple in any serious collection.
