FS: Zenith El Primero G381 chronograph brown sub dials

I have for sale a beautiful Zenith El Primero chronograph G381.

Dial is clean, and the sub registers and outer ring have turned brown. Two notes to make: print is not as clear on the right hand side of the minute sub register, and there's a loss on the outter ring near the date window - see pictures for best description.

Lume is all original and has darkened on the dial and counting second hand. The lume on the hour and minute hands are lighter and orange-ish in colour making it very harmonious and pleasing to the eye.

The case is strong, even the edges and satin polish remains, although likely to have been lightly polished before. Serial 644DXXX made between 1969-1972, only 700 pieces were made.

Correct Zenith El Primero cal. 3019 PHC, went through a full serviced at Classic Watch Repair HK, it is running strong and keeping time well. The chronograph operates smoothly and correctly.

This comes with black crocodile Camille Fournet strap and a signed Zenith yellow gold buckle and not the pictured brown leather strap.

Asking 12500USD + shipping
Payment: bank wire only or paypal +4%
