This men’s Zenith El Primero Quantieme, model number 40.1260.4003, is a brand new and extremely rare timepiece, as only 25 were made. Photos of the actual watch show that it is in perfect condition, with no signs of wear on the case, crystal, or strap. It is fully functional, and guaranteed 100% authentic. The retail price for this watch is $88,000.
The polished platinum case contains a silver dial with a textured white center, and a series of guilloche sub-dials that form both a chronograph and perpetual calendar: a 30 minute counter and date dial sit next to 3 o’ clock, with a moon phase and 12 hour counter at 6 o’ clock, subsidiary seconds and days at 9 o’ clock, and months at 12 o’ clock. An automatic movement powers the platinum toned hour, minute, and second hands, and the sub-dials. The crown and chronograph buttons of these prestige watches are also made of platinum.
The screwed down platinum back plate features a skeleton window. The black crocodile leather strap will fit a wrist up to 9 inches, and uses a deployment clasp. The case measures 45mm wide without the crown, 52mm long with the lugs, and 14mm thick. The watch is water resistant up to 30m, and weighs 7.9 oz.
The Zenith watch company is said to have been founded in 1865, and has revolutionized the fine watch industry. By bringing a number of isolated workshops into one central location, the company was able to successfully test new timepieces, and create precise and reliable luxury watches. The evolution of the El Primero watch collection is an example of the Zenith’s commitment to producing accurate and modern luxury watches.
