Zenith El Primero A782

legendary movement - only 1500 pieces made - perfect unpolished case

Fixed price offer

The legendary Zenith El Primero movement from 1969 is today synonymous with long-living and high-precise mechanics. It is the heart of Zenith watches, but also models of other prestigious watch manufacturers such as Rolex (see Rolex "Zenith" Daytona).

The reference A782 inspires with it's awesome, azure color. The dial is in absolute dream condition free from any imperfections. Even the "big-eye" sub-dials are immaculate. The original lume is completely existent. The date with Quick-Set mechanism is located at 5 o'clock. The unpolished case with slight wear looks very authentic and honest. The original crown and caseback are signed with the NATO star. The watch comes with it's original Zenith bracelet in very good condition.

Zenith produced only 1500 pieces of the A782. Considering the prices of other watches with similar history and rarity, this El Primero A782 is priced way too low. The logical conclusion is that there is enough price potential upward for this reference.
