Case, movement, and dial signed

Bearing a striking resemblance to the Zenith A277, this mighty example of a compressor cased diver from the 60s, perhaps unsurprisingly houses the venerable 146HP chronograph movement, produced by, you guessed it - Zenith

Increasingly sought after, with many collectors holding on to their prized examples of this rare bird, it is by no means commonplace to come across an example of the Super Sub Sea both with excellently preserved dial, but moreover the lusted after "Ghost Bezel" - the black of the bi-directional dive bezel has faded over time to an even faded grey

The case is unpolished and shows reasonable wear from time

The caseback presents the correct Super Sub Sea and "M" logo clearly

The tritium of the white hands are slightly lighter than the markers, which suggest a historic relume at some point, but only serve to increase legibility

Service history unknown, but currently running strong and keeping excellent time

Chronograph functions in full working order

Comes on a brand new Molequin Biscuit coloured water resistant strap (22 mm)

As with all Mann About Time purchases, also included is a bespoke calf leather travel pouch hand made in Italy, plus tote bag and certificate of authenticity
