Notes

The place of the A386 amongst iconic timepieces is no longer questioned. It was launched in 1969 featuring a genius tri-colored dial design combined with the El Primero caliber 3019 that would become legendary. The A386 is one of the most collectible timepieces ever made by Zenith. This example is the best we have offered at auction, featuring an almost unpolished case, clear numbers on the caseback as well as the original strap and buckle.
