SOLD - Zenith High-Frequency Date Automatic Solid 18k Gold Case Item #3001
This vintage 1960s Zenith is very similar to the Zenith Captain which is sold in the Zenith modern collection for nearly ten thousand dollars. A significant value to todays classic Zenith, this vintage watch is made in solid 18 karat gold and contains one of the first high-frequency automatic date movements made in collaboration with Movado for the Italian market. This particular model is rare due to its use of this high-frequency caliber and because its case back screws on instead of snapping on. What makes the watch even more attractive, is that its in near mint condition and keeping near perfect time. At approximately 34MM in size, not including the original crown, this watch is heavy and substantial than most vintage watches you will find. This watch comes on a new dark brown high quality lizard strap which is suitable with any color attire. Although I wouldn't wear this fine watch while changing the oil in my car, this piece is suitable for any business, casual or family event making it very versatile. Take a look at the pictures - this watch is near mint and recently overhauled by our watchmaker.
