A stunning and rare 1950's solid 18k rose gold Stellina chronograph from Zenith in wonderful lightly aged vintage condition with fantastic original dial and high grade column wheel movement, freshly serviced and ready to wear and a perfectly match genuine croc strap.  The markers on the dial are one aspect of this watch that makes it unique and very stylish with applied gold numbers at 12 and 6, arrow markers at 1,5,7 and 9 then box markers at 2,4,8 and 10.  The solid gold case is thick and heavy with a nice big size at 36mm in diameter excluding the crown and pushers.  While you can clearly see the small imperfections on the dial in the studio pictures, on the wrist in daylight it has a much cleaner look. A very rare, high quality solid gold chronograph from the workshops at Zenith of Le Locle, Switzerland.
