1970s Zenith A3817 El Primero with bracelet

This Zenith El Primero is a true rarity. Produced in only 1000 units, it is rare to find in good condition and even more with its original “ladder” Gay Freres bracelet. It features the famous tricolor dial and a great cushion case.

Produced from the end of the 60s (do not miss the 50th birthday of El Primero movement next year), its distinctive design, added to this solid steel bracelet, make it a bold and masculine watch, yet easy to pair with any outfit.

A true stunner in our opinion, not to be missed.
