Created in 1966, today the Cohiba, the celebrated name of the most sought-after cigars in the world is celebrating half a century of existence. At its side on the occasion of this anniversary, Swiss luxury watch manufacture Zenith is presenting a limited series of its legendary El Primero chronograph, with 50 watches in rose gold and 500 in stainless steel, all featuring a Havana brown dial and emblematic Cohiba motifs. A combination of elegance and technicality, the El Primero Chronomaster 1969 Cohiba Edition exudes a full-bodied fragrance tinged with daring and pleasure.
Zenith and Cohiba, two legendary Manufactures with a shared universe of authenticity, precision and excellence. Each one infuses passion and expertise into exceptional creations so as to bring unmatched enjoyment to experienced connoisseurs. The first ever Cohiba watch, the El Primero Chronomaster 1969 Cohiba Edition by Zenith celebrates the 50th anniversary of the world’s most prestigious cigar brand. Like the most luxurious of hand-rolled Cuban cigars, it embodies high-quality craftsmanship dedicated to an exclusive way of life.
At 11 o’clock, the famous opening of the dial reveals the palpitations of the automatic El Primero 4061 chronograph movement. With its impetuous 36,000 vibrations an hour cadence enabling a1/10th of a second display, its COSC precision-certified chronometer and integrated column-wheel construction, this El Primero ‘engine’ is a worthy heir to the world’s most precise series-made chronograph series presented by Zenith in 1969. Equipped with a silicon lever and escape-wheel, this 282-part movement driving central hour and minute, chronograph and tachymeter functions is endowed with an over 50-hour power reserve.
Developed for sophisticated connoisseurs, the El Primero Chronomaster 1969 Cohiba Edition watch is presented in an exclusive wooden box in the colours of the legendary Habanos cigar.
