Zenith launched the original version of the original EL Primero, which was launched in 1969, including Legendary El Primero, which is a reference A386 launched in 1969.
2019 and 2020 Zenith pay tribute to the A386, some limited editions are part of formal revival collections, but until today we have no steel versions of star.
As new Chronomaster original, Zenith has returned the design of A386 not only in the non-limiting steel version, but also further further further gradually measured by providing 1/10 of the second precision and time using El Primero Catiber.
The new Zenith Chronicaster original can be provided in a signature version with tricolor dial configuration, as well as “reverse panda” variants, black dial discs, and silver timer registers. Rose gold versions with tricolor dials have also been released.
We have the opportunity to test and wear two steel versions, and we are now very happy to share our real-time pictures and the first impression.
The 38 mm round steel case is almost the same as the original A386, with almost no baffles, raised and dome blue gem crystals, pump timer pushers and protoplast lugs. The line of the watch is displayed through the radial brushed and the polished surface.
But if you are closer to dialing, you will notice a main difference: unique three-color timing code table in gray and blue shadows, trapezoidal date window at 04:30, centrally, second seconds there, but There but the rhythm speed is replaced by the 1/10 of the second counting code on the outer circle of the dial, allows measuring and reading of time to measure and reading in an exact second.
The central counting hand-red or white depends on the version – surrounding the internal scale scan, 100 measurable time units can be displayed within 10 seconds. Unlike the original A386, this hand is straight, no paddle, can improve readability and cleaning design.
Three counters have a clockwise display: Time timer 60 seconds, at 3 o’clock, chronograph, 6:60, 9 o’clock. Plating rhodium and cutting, hand and hour markers are coated with super-raised SLN C1, which can improve the readability of poor light conditions.
The original EL Primero Caliber is equipped with the original version of El Primero Caliber, which extends the power reserve for 60 hours with high frequency beats of 36,000 vibrations (5 Hz) per hour.
It can be seen from the sapphire display, the updated architecture shows a blue column wheel and an open rotor marked with Pentagrang Zenith, which can also be found on the dial, crown and buckle.
The large-toothed wheel is based on the impulse control timing instrument lever (started and stopped at 2 o’clock, with a 4 o’clock to reset one) and help more accurately and accurately – steady through the manipulator impulse.
Due to its diameter and ergonomic lugs, the watch is well sitting on any size wrist (the wrist in our photos is 18 cm / 7 inches), on its Calfskin belt, with triple folding or re-re- Steel bracelets designed with more modern solid links and double folding buckles.
