    Incoming El Primero + something you don't see everyday

    I've always wanted an El Primero but could never bring myself to pull the trigger on the 38mm 1969 model. Recently I tried the Heritage 146 at my AD and fell in love. I don't understand why this watch is so grossly overlooked but it is stunning in person. I managed to pick up a mint pre-owned example from Timeless Luxury Watches for a great deal.

    At the same time that I was searching for this model I came across a vintage 70s NSA bracelet made for Zenith and thought it would look perfect paired with the Heritage 146. Here are a few photos of the combo. Let me know what you think!

    Lit91, Fantasio, Cybotron and 9 others like this.

    Love the new watch with the vintage strap!
    I like the heritage model, but I would not choose it over the chronomaster 1969.

    That bracelet is a good catch. Not cheap those.

    Great looking watch. I tried the brown dial on stan AD a couple of years back and I was equally impressed.

    I wish I could find a bracelet for my Elite 6150. Sigh.

    That combo looks fantastic. The Heritage 146 is one of the cleanest and most balanced looking El Primeros. It doesn't grab your attention the way some of the other references, but it does feel special.
