STARRY DENIM~EARLY 70s MOVAD/ZENITH EL PRIMERO DATRON

Regular price $2,799.00 Sale

COMING AT YOU IS THIS MEGA FUNKY EARLY 70s MOVADO-ZENITH DATRON CHRONOGRAPH RUNNING ON A CAL.3019 PHC EL PRIMERO IN GREAT CONDITION WITH LOVELY DENIM DIAL.

 

  • CASE: FUNKY-ASS C-SHAPED CASE IN SHARP CONDITION.  THIS HANDSOME FELLA MEASURES A COMFY 37mm ACROSS CASE NOT INCLUDING ORIGINAL SIGNED CROWN.  ORIGINAL BRUSHED FINISHES LOOK VERY WELL PRESERVED WITH JUST SOME MINOR HAIRLINES THROUGHOUT BUT IN SHARP CONDITION.

 

  • DIAL: I JUST HAVE TO SMILE WHEN I LOOK AT THIS FACE. THIS IS SO PAINFULLY 70s IN ALL THE RIGHT WAYS. NOTHING SAYS EARLY 70s LAUREL CANYON LAID BACK LIKE THIS DENIM BLUE DIAL WITH A SUBTLE AND EVEN HINT OF STARRY NIGHT PATINA AGING THROUGHOUT. YOU GOTTA LOVE THOSE SUNKEN SILVERY WHITE SUBDIALS. IN MY OPINION, THOUGH, IT'S ALL ABOUT THAT DATE WINDOW AT 12....SUCH A SIGNATURE LOOK FOR THIS MODEL. ALL TIED TOGETHER WITH THOSE DAGGER STYLE STEEL HANDS. WHAT AN ABSOLUTE BABE!
  • MOVEMENT: THIS RACY GUY IS POWERED BY THE LEGENDARY 31 JEWELED EL PRIMERO 3019 PHC MADE BY THE MOVADO/ZENITH GROUP BACK IN 1969 AND MARKETED AS THE FIRST AUTOMATIC CHRONOGRAPH MOVEMENT.  THIS ONE WAS ACQUIRED FROM A COLLECTOR WHO HAD THIS ONE SERVICED IN SEPTEMBER 2021. ALL FUNCTIONS WORK SMOOTHLY AND THIS ONE IS RUNNING LIKE A DREAM!!

 

  • THIS DATRON IS MOUNTED ON A GENUINE JB CHAMPION MOVADO SIGNED BRACELET WHICH FITS THIS MODEL NICELY BUT IS NOT ORIGINAL TO THIS PIECE. BRACELET CAN ACCOMMODATE UP TO A 7.5" WRIST. THIS IS A LEGENDARY MODEL HOUSING A HIGHLY COLLECTIBLE PIECE OF HOROLOGY HISTORY UNDER THE HOOD. IT'S HARD TO FIND ONE OF THESE GUYS UNDER $3000 ESPECIALLY IN STEEL(MANY OF THESE WERE GOLD FILLED). THIS ONE IS AN ABSOLUTE BLAST TO WEAR AROUND ON THE WRIST. STRAP THIS GUY ON AND BE THE EASY RIDER YOU'VE ALWAYS PICTURED YOURSELF TO BE.
