Item no.: WSN 1478
This beautifully BIG (45mm), intricate, intriguing, ingeneous and interesting marvel of watchmaking is an almost new (July 2019) ZENITH CHRONOMASTER SKELETON chronograph with the famous 'El Primero' movement inside. It comes with its box and papers, and is in virtually-like-new condition.
A glimpse of the movement can be seen through the skeletal dial, and much more of the movement can be appreciated through the display window in the back of the case (see photo). And it's definitely worth examining the legendary movement closely through a magnifier / loupe, because it's stunning, precise, intricate, well-crafted and beautifully finished!
The watch is mounted on a comfortable rubber strap which is closed with a stainless steel clasp, which combines a pin buckle (for adjustability) with a push-button-release folding deployant clasp (for ease of use).
This watch provides a chronograph (stop-watch) "complication" with the usual centre chronograph second hand and 30-minute and 12-hour totalizers/counters in two of the cleverly overlapping subsidiary dials. The third small dial provides the continuous second hand.
The date is indicated via the exposed date disc at the 6 o'clock position.
Our Price and Guarantee
Firstly, if you're at all attracted to this watch (and why wouldn't you be?), realize that there are not many pre-owned ones around: it's not like buying a pre-owned Rolex Datejust! So if you're interested, it's advisable not to hesitate! Secondly, this is a fantastic-looking watch with bags of 'presence': it's bound to attract admiring comments!
And yet, despite it being less than a year old at the time of this listing (Feb 2020), you get to save a LOT of money compared to buying brand new just because it's pre-owned: this watch's list price new is £5,700, but this item could be giving your image a boost for our price of just £POA!
But that great price isn't the end of the story. Because with Swiss watches, it's important to consider not only the price, but also the actual, true cost of ownership. That is, to estimate how much this watch might be worth in, for example, 3 or 4 (or more) years' time, say. It's only then that the monthly cost of owning such a watch can be estimated, and it's usually only then that people realize how little it can cost to own such a mark of distinction.
Furthermore, your cash outlay could be significantly less than our asking price above, because we may also consider your old Swiss watch in part exchange if you have one. (If there is any possibility you might like to do a part-exchange deal when you visit us, please bring your watch in with its box and papers if you still have them, together with some photo ID.)
Note that we may also be able to offer 12 months of interest-free credit on upto 90% of the amount payable. (This would be applied for on the premises, and is subject to acceptance.)
To ensure you feel confident to deal with us with complete peace of mind, we will guarantee this watch for a full 12 months from the date of your purchase. And we have the means to back that guarantee up fully: we have a lot of experience supporting the brands of Swiss watches that we specialize in, with our own on-site workshop manned by highly-experienced watch technicians, access to original parts, and even access to off-site technicians within our network for any of those (rarer) trickier or special jobs that might be required.

After all, there really is no better way to check out a watch that you might be interested in owning than to come and take a closer look at it.

Here, you're typically able to browse around one hundred and fifty pre-owned Swiss watches that we have out on display, each of which has been carefully selected, based on its condition, from among the many more watches that we see and handle every day. (To a large extent, that's in effect what we do: we 'filter' pre-owned watches. Only the very best of what we buy in or receive in part exchange deals make it onto our display shelves and onto this website, and this particular item is a prime example of such fussiness. The rest are sold on: for example, to smaller dealers in the trade.)
The result is that we probably have **the best** collection of pre-owned Swiss watches in such prime-condition in the region! You can take advantage of that fact to make it much easier for you to find your next (or perhaps your first) watch that's in the sort of condition that you really want.
