THE EL PRIMERO MOVEMENT DEVLEOPED BY MOVADO-ZENITH in 1969 is still considered to be the finest chronograph movement produced by a major watchmaking house. This is one of the earliest versions- elaborated first with 17 jewels and then later with 31 jewels. Here are the details: 41x44mm (not counting the crown and guard) MOVADO HS-360 HIGHBEAT AUTOMATIC DIVERS CHRONOGRAPH from 1969. This baby is all original and FIVE TIMES SIGNED. It was the earliest of the Movado-Zenith (El Primero) movements and uses the same 36,000 half ocillation per hour highbeat caliber 3019 PHC movement. The watch is a triple register chronograph with the date feature at 12. The movement is automatic, has both hackset and quickset date and has a screwdown divers crown. In addition it has a rotating bakelite divers bezel. The entire watch is in extra fine plus condition. A really nice example. Here are more specific details:
