Zenith El Primero G384

18kt yellow gold - unpolished case - super rare watch

Zenith El Primero G384 is the golden sister of the steel reference A384. This super-rare yellow gold version is very uncommon. The collectors talk about less than 5 known watches.

The vintage Zenith El Primero watches from 1969 and 1970 are considered icons of watch history. On the one hand because of the groundbreaking automatic El Primero movement and on the other hand because of its striking design. The most popular reference is A386 with three interlocking sub-dials. Also in 1969 Zenith introduced a second case, the angled tonneau case with reference A384. And the G384 is the counterpart in the solid yellow gold case.

The dial of this watch has a panda layout and a tachymeter bezel with oversized sub-dials for the chrono minutes and the sub second. The 12-hour counter of the chronograph is located in a slightly smaller sub-register at 6 o'clock. In this G384, the black sub-dials and the tachymeter scale turned into a dark brown patina. The red chronograph hand and the position of the date provide an undeniable Zenith look. The date can be set immediately with the crown.

The tonneau-shaped yellow gold case has sharp edges. On the case back the serial number is clearly legible, which speaks for an unpolished condition. This Zenith El Primero G384 dates from the early 1970s. Despite the old age, this watch was superbly preserved. The movement runs absolutely flawlessly. All functions of the chronograph are running properly.

An extremely rare collector's item in mint condition.
