Zenith - Heritage Cronometro TIPO CP-2

| 1 Comment
From the early 1960s onwards, the Italian military chose Zenith to equip the pilots of its Navy and Air Force. The Rome-based distributor “A. Cairelli” handled delivery of the 2,500 chronographs that were still being worn by pilots of the U.S. Lockheed F104 Starfighter aircraft in the late 1970s to the Marina Militare and the Aeronautica Militare Italiana.

Code-named TIPO CP-2 and often identified by collectors under the name “A. Cairelli”, this military chronograph had a diameter of 43 mm and featured two large counters at 3 and 9 o’clock.


To celebrate this historical timepiece, which in recent years has been fetching high prices on the vintage market, Zenith is presenting a modern version of the original: the Heritage Cronometro TIPO CP-2.

Issued in a 1,000-piece limited series, the TIPO CP-2 is powered by a 36,000 vph El Primero 406-9 automatic movement with a 50-hour power reserve.


The 43 mm x 12.85 mm stainless steel case is enhanced by an easy-to-handle bezel and large chronograph pushers. Readability in any light condition is ensured by the large hands with Super-LumiNova coating, also used for the Arabic numerals, in strong contrast with the black dial.


The new Zenith Heritage Cronometro TIPO CP-2 (ref. 03.2240.4069/21.C774) has a price of Euro 7,900 / US$ 7,700. zenith-watches.com
