The legendary movement caliber 3019PHC of course also powers this El Primero version.

Perfect chronograph for wrists with smaller circumference. The original steel bracelet fits nevertheless up to a wrist circumference of approx. 19cm.

The leather strap is not included. The El Primero actually makes a good impression on any strap.

Technically perfect.

Dial and case are in very good condition. The bezel unfortunately has a few flaws. Please take a look at the photos.

The previous owner had the case refurbished.

The watch originates from the USA and was bought there in the 1990s by the last owner.

There is a special export version for the USA with “17 Jewels” (instead of 31 Jewels), we find this version here as well. The changed number of jewels was related to customs clearance. The lower number resulted in a different tax rate for the import into the USA.
