Iconeek is proud to introduce here a superb and unusual, limited edition, 18K pink gold chronograph wristwatch by Zenith: the El Primero New Vintage 1969. The model was presented at the Basel fair in 2009, to commemorate the 40th anniversary of the El Primero (1969). With its 1970s inspired design, the model has a sporty and elegant look. Under the sapphire crystal, the brushed rose copper colored dial is matching perfectly the rose gold case, whereas the guilloche brown registers are constrasting and matching the bracelet. The model is powered by a caliber 469, chronometer, beating at 36000 alternance per hour, with gold rotor and column wheel chronograph mechanism, all visible through the sapphire crystal set screwed case back. Dial, case and movement are signed. The size between the lugs is 20 mm. The retail price in 2011 was almost 14’000 Euros.
