Zenith unveiled today the new Chronomaster Sport collection equipped with an evolved El Primero 3600 calibre featuring improved timekeeping performance and capable of measurements with an accuracy of 1/10th of a second.
The new Chronomaster Sport is strongly characterised by its black ceramic bezel etched to mark each passing 1/10th of a second, making this function more legible.
Crafted in a polished and brushed stainless steel case measuring 41 mm x 13.6 mm with pump-style pushers and water resistant to 100 metres / 330 feet, the Chronomaster Sport comes in four references:
- Reference 03.3100.3600/69.M3100 with white dial and metal bracelet
- Reference 03.3100.3600/69.C822 with white dial and blue cordura bracelet)
- Reference 03.3100.3600/21.M3100 with black dial and metal bracelet
- Reference 03.3100.3600/21.C823 with black dial and black cordura bracelet
Whether black or white, the dial features the signature El Primero tri-color chronograph registers in blue, anthracite and light grey, just like the A386 from 1969.
Each of the counters is graduated to 60 for an intuitive and instantaneous reading of the chronograph: 60-minute counter at 6 o'clock, 60-second counter at 3 o'clock, running seconds at 9 o'clock. The central chronograph hand makes one turn in 10 seconds.
Fast beating at the frequency of 5 Hz (36,000 vibrations per hour) and visible through the sapphire display back, the El Primero 3600 calibre now offers an extended power reserve of 60 hours.
The Zenith Chronomaster Sport retails for Euro 9,200 / US$ 9,500 USD on strap and Euro 9,700 / US$ 10,000 on bracelet. zenith-watches.com
