Zenith El Primero Chronomaster Open 1969 Hero Cup Edition

Swiss watch manufacture Zenith has teamed with the UK-based Historic Endurance Rallying Organisation (better known as HERO) as official timekeeper of the HERO Cup. Zenith, which was founded in 1865, has established a partnership with HERO, which was set-up in 1993 and has since become one  of  the  most  successful  and  respected  historic endurance  rallying  organizations  in  the  world. 

Zenith will be the Official Timekeeper of the HERO Cup and the future winner of the HERO Cup will also receive a Zenith El Primero Chronomaster Open from a limited edition of 100 units, being produced especially to mark the partnership between HERO and the celebrated Swiss watch brand. Powered by the legendary beating heart of the El Primero movement, the El Primero Chronomaster 1969 HERO Cup edition incorporates the HERO logo into the 12-hour counter at six o’clock and is supplied on a leather strap with special red stitching.
The back of the 42mm diameter watch, meanwhile, has a sapphire crystal centre which enables the highly finished, chronometer-certified movement to be clearly seen. Just  100  units  of  Zenith  branded  limited  edition  of  the HERO  Cup  will  be  available.
