This Zenith-driven Daytona 16520 is in impressive condition for a watch that has been telling time for over 20 years. Even more impressive is the fact that it has never been polished before, so all original from the beginning. The bracelet does have marks of wear as well as a bit of stretch to it which is understandable for a watch of its age (80-85% grade on the bracelet's stretch). As for the bezel, it is still crisp with minimal blemishes and enamel still well intact. Please refer to the pictures in determining the condition, pictures are of the exact watch being offered.
