In order to better present the core charm of the flagship Chronomaster, Zenith launched the legendary El Primero chronograph in three different forms: full solid disk, half hollow disk, and today’s full hollow disk.
The completely open design allows watch fans to capture and appreciate the precision operation of the movement. The new watch is equipped with the legendary El Primero integrated column-wheel automatic chronograph movement, which is assembled from 326 parts, vibrates up to 36,000 times per hour (5 Hz), and provides a power reserve of up to 50 hours.
The three sub-dials are reasonably arranged. The 30-minute cumulative timer, the 12-hour cumulative timer and the small second hand are set at 3, 6 and 9 o’clock, respectively, to confirm the smooth operation of the movement.
The new watch is available in 38mm and 42mm versions, and is available in stainless steel and stainless steel with 18K rose gold bezels. The new watch is equipped with a brown alligator leather strap or a stainless steel metal bracelet, which is water-resistant to 100 meters.
In addition to the fascinating mechanism that is now fully visible, the new watch also has a subtle compliment to the El Primero 1969 historical model in other aspects. The 38 mm date display window is set between 4 and 5 o’clock, just like the original version; the famous blue scale circle is also the same as the historical prototype.
