Remember the time just before the 1970’s quartz crisis decimated the Swiss watchmakers, companies invested huge amounts in R&D striving to be the first or go faster ,deeper or higher than their rivals .It was exactly at that time that Zenith released the El primero automatic chronograph movement ,a high beat masterpiece and one that was so well respected it was used by the words biggest watch brand for many years in their famous Daytona.
This Zenith sub sea is original example from c 1970 and a watch that even today makes a statement ,its big 43mm solid stainless steel and coupled with the original Zenith lobster bracelet its not a light watch but when you where it ,it feels solid and I suspect bombproof although please don’t put that to the test .
The watch is all original and has an outer rotating hour bezel ,The lume on the original hands is missing in parts but I have left it that .
This is no safe queen the case and bracelet show marks from normal wear but rather that than over polished as seen on so many vintage pieces.
