The legendary El Primero by Zenith
Zenith has made its mark on watchmaking history by presenting the first integrated automatic chronograph movement in 1969. The world’s most accurate mechanical series-made calibre – beating at a frequency of 10 vibrations per second and thus capable of measuring 1/10ths of a second – gave rise to the legendary El Primero chronograph.
In 1969, the trend was strongly favoured monochrome dials and the El Primero model also stood out by its multi-hued dial featuring three counters in different colours and a red sweep seconds chronograph hand for enhanced readability.
The new El Primero Chronomaster 1969 chronograph has this genetic heritage: the historical colours are highlighted on it: the two 30-minute and 12-hour counters at 3 and 6 o’clock respectively feature the same colours as the original 1969 El Primero model: midnight blue for the former and anthracite for the latter.
