Zenith Super Sub Sea A277 Ghost Bezel

striking look - unpolished case - Gay-Frères bracelet

This attractive and popular Zenith reference A277 from the 1960s features a faded ghost bezel and is accompanied by the original Gay Frères bracelet.

Zenith Super Sub Sea A277 is one of the last Zenith manually wound watches before the El Primero movement was introduced in 1969. The caliber 146 HP is one of the most reliable chronograph movements in watch history and is very popular among vintage collectors.

The chronograph owes its wonderful look on the wrist to the distinctive reverse panda dial, which is housed in a large 40mm case. A true and authentic vintage look is ensured by the faded ghost bezel and the warm creamy tritium lume in indexes and hands.

A special feature of this vintage watch is its honest original condition. The stainless steel case has rarely been worn, has natural wear marks and has never been polished. This makes this Zenith a valuable collector's watch that you can wear every day without fear that even a small scratch will lead to a loss of value.

The watch becomes even more valuable thanks to the rare Gay Frères stainless steel bracelet. The so-called ladder bracelets are very popular among collectors due to their lightness and comfort. The clasp is equipped with a diver's extension and bears the matching date stamp.
