FS: Zenith El Primero De Luca 1 series, ref. 01.0040.400

hi all,
for sale my Zenith De Luca 1 series, reference 01.0040.400 with white dial and strap (original, as it was sold).

The watch is in really great condition: bezel is perfect, dial is perfect too, hands has a really small patina from the years. Case and case back was polished. Movement is not serviced but it works really really god. IT still have the original strap and buckle.

Think about this is one of the rarest Zenith El Primero, made at the end of the 80s for the italian dealer De Luca in about 375pcs in 1989.

Please note that the first series was sold only on black leather strap, and the crown without the logo, and my watch is correct. The bracelet, and the crown with logo cames with the second series.

You can get in contact with me at 0039 351 802 5082 via whatsapp or by email at

The watch is for sale at ebay (where I have over 100 sales feedback) at higer price.

My price request for this rare bird El Primero is 5600€ net to me, payment via paypal friend, bank transfer, or cash if you want to come and pick it up close to Venice (Italy)
