Some manually wound Daytonas present dials that with time change color: the black paint reacts with light and other environmental factors and turns a variety of colors, from dark chocolate to nearly orange. These dials are the so-called tropical dials, and are in very high demand among collectors. This process can occur also on Zenith Daytonas, however it usually affects the white chapter rings, which turn brown, and can occur only on watches manufactured between 1993 and 1997, while with manually wound daytonas it can occur on any watch. Consequently, one can infer that Zenith Daytonas with tropical dials are even more rare than manually wound ones.
The present watch not only is one of such rare gems - and one with an incredibly even and warm tropicalization of the chapter rings, now a deep chestnut color - but it also comes in absolutely new-old-stock condition. The case is of course practically mint, and the watch still retains, untouched and unspoiled, the green sticker to the back, and even its plastic bezel cover.
