Lot Essay

The Zenith El Primero A386, featuring the legendary caliber 3019 PHC, was the first high-beat, fully integrated automatic movement. Combined with an iconic and unique dial design, interest in the A386 continues to grow as collectors place it among the most important and iconic chronographs ever made.

The reference A386 was first released in 1969 and it is reported that Zenith made only 2,500 examples of the A386, with far fewer surviving today. The A386 was the only El Primero to offer the rounded case shape that is highly prized by collectors. This watch features unusual and stunning tri-color registers (light grey for running seconds, blue for minutes, and dark grey for hours) with a central red seconds hand.
