FS: Concord Impresario - 18K Gold - Zenith Elite HW "Reserve de Marche" - 52.G8.220

First off, this is also listed on eBay, (StephenInAnnArbor) where I have been a member since Aug of 2006. I have 100% positive feedback and just short of 700 transactions.

Concord Impresario
HW Elite Power Reserve in all 18K Gold (Zenith Hand Wound Elite Movement) complete with original strap and buckle.

Stored in my safe for years, there might not be a single other specimen in this condition anywhere.

US $3,895.00

Stunning details with silver dial, gold accents & Reserve Power Meter and separate second hand dial at 9 O'clock.

INCREDIBLE VALUE: Search for "Zenith HW Reserve de Marche" watches and you'll quickly realize what a truly amazing deal the Concord Impresario offered during it's short run with the same Zenith 655 Calibre movement.

These are not listed very often (about once every other year) and will occasionally be offered for a few hundred dollars less than I'm asking. Typically those are in "average" condition without the original strap, buckle, box, warranty card and manual.

The last one that sold on eBay was in 2016 for $3,549 without the original strap or buckle. There's one available right now on for $4,200 that does have the 18K buckle but not the original strap, and it is clearly not in the same condition.... go look for yourself.

With the original buckle, box and strap, in just average condition, my price would still be very reasonable. In essentially new condition, this is a certainly a once in a decade opportunity, (maybe once period) at a legitimate bargain price.

Lepsi Scope Analyzer report attached.. first measurement is dial down, second is dial up.

For a value comparison...

Touch of Modern has this on sale today:
Zenith Class Elite Reserve de Marche Automatic // 03.1125.685 // Pre-Owned
For $2,391.35

Which is the same movement, but in a Stainless case.

By contrast, my listing is solid 18K in a much nicer case, with coin-edging and frankly a nicer dial as well!
