This rare, and unusual Zenith A279 'Grey panda' is a special and seldom seen reference with a sought after 38 mm case. The size size and style presents well in any modern setting, yet has a less is more simplicity amd timless feel of the 60s.
The case is nice with only light wear and looks unpolished, or very light if ever. The original pushers and crown are a seldom seen but nice feature.
The silver dial has a light patina, and deep pumpkin hour markers on dial and in hands. The hands provide a cool constrast.
The manually wound 146d movement is signed Zenith as it should be on the bridge, and is in extremely good condition.
It comes paired with a quality honey tan croc strap.
One to add to the collection!
