    About This Watch

    We are proud to present this stylish Zenith El Primero ‘Jean-Louis Etienne’ Limited Edition 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 03.2043.4052/01.M2040 was launched in 2010 was a limited edition of only 500 pieces ever made. Jean-Louis Etienne the famous explorer, for whom this watch was linked with completed many impressive feats of skill and endurance, which directly links with the El Primero’s ethos. It is set in a polished 42mm stainless steel case with a slim, smooth polished bezel. The dial is a clean silver colour with contrasting black triple sub-dials, interlaced for timing up to 12-hours with a date feature at 6 o’clock. It also features the 1/10th of a second scale on its chapter ring, again a unique feature of the El Primero watches and their superlative movements. It has a domed sapphire crystal glass and is powered by the Zenith 4052 automatic movement, which is visible through an exhibition caseback. It comes with a matching brushed/polished stainless steel case with a dual folding clasp.

    Originally purchased in December 2011 and in mint condition, this Zenith comes with its original inner & outer boxes, instruction booklet, leather card holder and international warranty card. This El Primero is sold with a 12-month warranty from SWC.
