El Primero is celebrating its 50th anniversary: an opportunity to unveil this cult movement in its modernised version, fitted in the emblematic Chronomaster. The new El Primero lineage is inaugurated with series of 250 titanium models featuring an original ceramic bezel and skeleton dial.
Reinterpreted to ensure greater modularity, the El Primero 3600 calibre has been designed using the latest technologies, while preserving the DNA of the original movement. Also beating at the high frequency of 36,000 vibrations per hour, it measures and displays tenths of a second.
Equipped with the El Primero 3600 movement, the Chronomaster 2 also flaunts a modernised look with a light titanium case, black or blue ceramic graduated bezel, skeleton dial with solid counters and star-shaped oscillating weight. Graced with three distinctive colours – light grey, blue and anthracite – the display is distinguished by a direct tenth-of-a-second read-off. The red chronograph hand makes a full sweep of the dial in ten seconds, indicating with each jump successive tenths of a second on the 100 graduations of the flange and bezel. Available in two limited series, fitted with a blue or black ceramic bezel, the Chronomaster 2 is a powerful distillation of Zenith’s modern and sporty identity.
