Immortal legend continues classic
  Since its birth in 1969, ElPrimero has been writing legends for Zenith. On the occasion of the fiftieth anniversary, this precise and excellent automatic chronograph will retain glory in brilliant white, rose and gold colors while retaining its original features. Its revolutionary mechanism can measure tenths of a second, together with its highly recognizable dial, make a legend of the generation. 36,000 vibrations per hour, integrated column wheel structure; central rotor mounted on ball bearings and a power reserve of more than 50 hours (a real feat for such a high-frequency movement), making it ElPrimero’s signature for half a century. To pay tribute to the classics, Zenith introduced 50 original models and reissued them with a 50-year warranty, continuing the extraordinary legend of ElPrimero.

  In addition to material changes, this anniversary set faithfully reproduces the original features of the 1969 ElPrimero: a 38-mm stainless steel case, a curved glass with magnifying effect, a three-color timer, tachymeter scale, hands and hour markers. This watch uses the ‘counter-time’ process, which completely reproduces the shape of the lugs and mushroom-shaped adjustment buttons. To perfectly recreate this outstanding watch, every component is laser scanned. In addition, Zenith also displayed ingenuity on the case: the original solid case back now shows the movement of the movement without obstruction, and the brand logo on the crown has also been updated. At the same time, the ‘Power Engine’ of this model is equipped with the current version of the ElPrimero column wheel chronograph movement, displaying the hours, minutes and small seconds, chronograph, speedometer and date display functions are in white paint Face dial between 4 and 5 o’clock. The straps continue to use brown or black leather straps, depending on the model-the models in the picture are rubber-lined crocodile leather and equipped with the same buckle as the case material. The set also includes a bright red travel bag from the 1969 version, a microfiber cloth adorned with drawings of the ElPrimero chronograph movement on one side, and a photo of the original user manual printed on the other side.
