DESCRIPTION

Introducing the NTH Nazario!

An homage which pays tribute to one of the Rarest Rolex’s ever, the Nazario is a watch that Chris Vail (of NTH) and I had determined months ago, would become WatchGauge’s first exclusively manufactured timepiece.

Being a personal fan of watches that aren’t common and not many people knew about, the Nazario made perfect sense to offer as our first commissioned watch.  The reason being, is that it pays tribute to the Rolex Zerographe!  Never heard of it?  After spending almost 2 decades in the watch industry, I’d never heard of it either, until Chris proposed the Nazario to me!

What is the Rolex Zerographe ( Rolex Reference 3346)?

Developed in the mid 1930’s, the Zerographe is the predecessor to the Submariner and incorporated some very unique features for its’ time.

  • It is the first ever Rolex with a rotating bezel (now a staple feature on all Rolex Sport models)
  • It housed Rolex’s first ever in-house chronograph movement
  • Its’ California dial is a feature that is found on only two Rolex models ever made (the other being the Reference 5500 which was a non-sport model).
  • It is estimated that Rolex produced between seven and twelve 3346s, and only four examples are known to still be in existence.
  • It was the very first Rolex chronograph in an Oyster case.

The Nazario is a classic NTH Sub that nods its’ head to one of the most rare and iconic watches in history, and I’m proud to be able to offer it to you.

Terms of the Pre-Order:

– Pre-Orders will run from now till December 15th.  Once the pre-order ends, we lock in our production numbers when we start production, and will not be able to add to them. Since the production numbers are based on pre-orders, there may not be very many (if any) available after we start production. Once they’re gone, they’re gone.

– We anticipate a mid-April delivery date. As you can imagine, we hope for sooner, but due to the fact that we don’t control the manufacturing, it may be a little bit longer. We’ll be sending out updates as we near the end of production.

– Any pre-orders cannot be refunded. If you choose, a store credit for the full amount may be used toward another watch that is in-stock on WatchGauge.

– In the very-unlikely event that we do not reach a certain number of pre-orders and cannot fulfill a minimum order quantity with NTH, you will be offered a full refund or may use the full amount toward another watch that is in-stock on WatchGauge.
