Lot Essay

In 1969, Zenith changed the history of watchmaking with the invention of the legendary El Primero, enabling short-time measurements accurate to the nearest 1/10th of a second.

In a distinctive unique remake and striking departure from its typical light grey, anthracite and blue counters, the 38-mm Only Watch A386 revival features a singular turquoise 3 o'clock subdial in tribute to this year's Only Watch theme colour, echoed by discreet turquoise stitching on a black alligator strap.

Engraved on the back with the logo of the biennial charity auction, this creation comes nestled in a luxurious dedicated one-of-a-kind Only Watch collector's box.

The Only Watch special edition comes with a lifetime warranty (including service) in honour of the current El Primero 50th anniversary celebration.


EXPERIENCE
The buyer of this one-off timepiece will also be rewarded with an unprecedented array of watchmaking experiences offering an immersion into luxury according to Zenith. It also includes an invitation for the purchaser to visit the Monde étoile de Zenith and the famous grenier of its Manufacture in Le Locle.

The owner will be a guest at the splendid closing event in Geneva that will conclude the El Primero 50th anniversary «Le Grenier Club» tour in due style.

In addition to attending this once in a lifetime event, the proud owner of the Only Watch El Primero A386 White Gold will be presented with a VIP package for two including hotel accommodation and a range of exclusive experiences to prolong the magic of this iconic celebration.
