Zenith - Chronomaster 2

Zenith Chronomaster 2

In its long history Zenith constantly demonstrated a forward-looking attitude, always investigating new opportunities for innovation. At the same time, the brand showed great respect for its legacy as an important value to preserve.

In this spirit, Zenith watchmakers have redesigned the El Primero, probably the world’s most celebrated  automatic chronograph movement, with a new version ensuring greater modularity.

Designed using the latest technologies while respecting the architecture and proven performance of the original, the new El Primero 3600 calibre prioritized modularity, optimised industrial production, assembly and adjustment, the addition of a stop-seconds device and autonomy increased to a full 60 hours. Specifications also included the possibility to integrate several functions and displays.

Maintaining the integrated construction incorporating a lateral clutch, column wheel and ballbearing-mounted central rotor typical of the original, the El Primero 3600 includes the following modifications: a tenth-of-a-second display on a scale with 100 graduations; the addition of a balance-stop device; a reversal of the crown sequence; adjustment of the wheels and gears; enlarged and centred design of the column wheel; and most visibly of all, an optimised lateral clutch that now includes two intermediate wheels.

El Primero 3600

The modernised version of the El Primero is inaugurated with two Chronomaster models available in limited editions of 250 pieces each. Alongside the original El Primero, it will gradually be introduced on other models in the range and equipped with various functions.

The new Zenith Chronomaster 2 models feature a light titanium case with black (ref. 95.3001.3600/69.C817) or blue (ref. 95.3002.3600/69.C818) ceramic graduated bezel, skeleton dial with solid counters in the three signature colours: light grey, blue and anthracite.

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.

In addition to measuring and displaying tenths of a second, the Chronomaster 2 features hour and minute functions in the centre, 60-minute and 60-second chronograph counters, running small seconds and date.

Operating at 36,000 vibrations per hour and equipped with a star-shaped oscillating weight with satined finishings, the El Primero 3600 guarantees a minimum 60-hour power reserve.

The new Zenith Chronomaster 2 models have a price of Euro 9,600. zenith-watches.com
