FS: Zenith Defy "Espada"

For sale a stunning Zenith Defy "Espada"
Probably a once in a lifetime opportunity, this is a stunning 100% original vintage Zenith Defy Ref. A7682 with a beautiful degradee turquoise dial. It's a luxury sports watch from the early 70s characterized by a charming design with its well-shaped and tapered sturdy case, and the integrated iconic "lobster" bracelet. The overall quality is exceptional, the value of the Zenith PC2562 high-precision manufacture movement and the technical characteristics of precision, robustness, reliability and water resistance (300m with screw-down crown, screwed caseback, and screwed bezel), place it on the top range of Swiss watchmaking of the time. This one is a real new old stock example, a "time capsule"..! With a careful observation you can hardly see some minimal signs due to storage. It has never been worn, it still has the blue protective substance in various places on the case and on the case back. It should also be noted that the watch works perfectly and keeps time with absolute precision, in fact it has been checked and serviced in all its parts by our trusted watchmaker, an expert in vintage Zenith watches. A very tempting opportunity for collectors and investors, finding this reference in new old stock condition is more unique than rare. The pictures are an integral part of the description, for more pics of info you can also contact
