    New Ladder Bracelet for Zenith A384 and A386




    You can now get the famous ladder bracelet, originally from Gay Frčres, for the 50th Anniversary editions of the A384 (a watch I called the best new chronograph of 2019) and A386! Better yet, these bracelets are available at a very reasonable $384.00, so if you are lucky enough to own one of the A384 or A386 50th Anniversary models, you should definitely consider adding one of these bracelets to it.

    I wish I could get one that cheap for my ChronoMaster (1996 version) - and one that the watch will take! The original one was only for watches with drilled through lugs. Unfortunately, I sweat a hell of a lot in summer.....

    Unfortunately, that's the only decent shot Zenith sent me. But Zenith showed some of these revival pieces on the ladder bracelet when they announced them, so with a little Google-fu, I think you can find some good ones. Now, that said, some time has passed, so there could be small changes between those and the current one, but I think it'll be a pretty good representation.

    I always thought it was interesting how the original ladder bracelets from Gay Frčres were folded rather than solid metal. I’m guessing the new version has solid metal links. It will actually be superior to the original in that sense.

    Amazing price for a Zenith steel bracelet.

    Because it match the revival models, it can be used o vintage too.

    I expect the bracelet have less loseness than original.

    Hollow llugs ?

    I guess they had to cut corners somewhere to offer it at that price, i was asked for 500 euros for my Seiko antana.

    whats the lug width for this ? 19 like the original ?

    New Ladder Bracelet for Zenith A384 and A386

    I wonder how this would look of paired with one of the original Zenith models from the 60s and 70s? Even if it fits, would it be too shiny and crisp to pair well with a vintage piece? The current steel bracelet for the 38 mm Chronomaster series models wouldn’t look great with a vintage A386 because in my opinion because of the shiny center links.



    If the A384 ladder bracelet is entirely brushed maybe it won’t have that problem.

    I think it would look splendidly vintage!

    Just ordered the A384 with a bracelet... been hunting for a chronograph for along time, so many to choose from, this piece ticked all the boxes.
