A legendary engine with inimitable tri-color counters, the new Zenith chronograph reveals the inner workings of a worldwide success named “El Primero”. Framed by an imposing steel case, the skeleton dial provides a stunning view of a peerless sports mechanism.
Inspired by a vintage Lightweight limited series much coveted by connoisseurs, the new El Primero 36’000 VpH fully lives up to its predecessor’s enviable reputation. Its open-worked dial with the three iconic counters is enlivened by red accents as this eminently virile chronograph boldly flaunts its impressive horological credentials, beating at an impressive 5 Hz frequency.
