Phillips x Zenith

Zenith has definitely gone all out with the 50th anniversary of the El Primero and the latest limited edition is their flashiest variant yet. Phillips will be auctioning off a one-of-a kind El Primero Chronograph with a PT 950 platinum case, which is the first time the watch has been done up in this precious metal. Equally as striking is the blue dial, which is made from lapiz lazuli, a vibrant blue stone that glimmers with flecks of gold. As a nod to the El Primero's durability, the watch will have a special 50-year international warranty to guarantee that the watch will be properly maintained for years and years to come. 

The watch will hit the auction block on November 8th in Geneva, Switzerland, which will be the final stop of Zenith's anniversary world tour.
