The eye catching stainless steel Zenith diver dates to the early 1970’s and like all other Zeniths of the period and today is built to the highest quality. The watch is substantial with a 38 mm case (ex crown) and has a gorgeous contrasting multi tone mirror dial. The dial really is the stand out item on this watch, most of the variations of this already rare piece had ‘fum’ dials but this is the much rare mirror dial variant. The dial is also marked as "AF/P" marking at six o’clock; this stands for “Alta Frequenza Precisione,” meaning that this watch has a high frequency.
The watch is in stunning original condition and has just been fully overhauled whilst still preserving the original untouched case. The gorgeous Zenith calibre 405 movement is pristine and working exactly as it should and is keeping excellent time.
These were marketed by Zenith as alternatives to the Rolex Submariner but more expensive, they lacked the divers elapse bezel of many dive watches but because of their design where an instant hit.
This example is one the best we have seen, it even has the original GF Zenith Ladder bracelet, which is in perfect condition and date stamped to 1971. A wonderful piece and a great alternative to a period Rolex Submariner for a fraction of the price but equal if not better in quality.
