We are proud to present this stylish & contemporary Zenith Chronomaster Sport watch for sale.
The now infamous El Primero was launched in 1969 and its name ‘the first’, was a big statement within the watch industry as both automatic and chronograph watches both existed, just never together before then. Zenith’s choice of name, El Primero, drove the point home. But the moniker was suitable given its pioneering approach. It allowed the balance to oscillate at 36,000 beats per hour, a rate which in turn allowed the measurement of elapsed time to a then unheard of 1/10th of a second with central rotor, column wheel and the other now standard elements of an automatic movement having undergone a remarkable feat of miniaturization. It was such a leap that his very movement is what would be found inside legends the likes of Rolex’s Daytona for the next 30 years.
This version the reference 03.3100.3600/69.M3100 was launched in 2021 and is the perfect modern example of the chronograph. It is set in a polished 41mm stainless steel case with a striking black ceramic bezel with 1/10th of a second increments, which means the split-second hand does one full rotation per-second. The dial is a crisp white colour with contrasting multi-coloured triple sub-dials, interlaced for timing up to 12-hours with a date feature between 4/5 o’clock. It has a domed sapphire crystal glass and is powered by the Zenith calibre El Primero 3600 automatic movement, which is visible through an exhibition caseback. It comes with a matching brushed/polished stainless steel bracelet with a folding sports clasp.
Originally purchased in August 2021 and in unworn condition, this Zenith comes with its original inner & outer boxes, instruction booklet, leather card holder and international warranty card. This El Primero is under Zenith warranty until August 2023 and is extendable upon registry with Zenith.
