About this watch

The race to produce the world’s first automatic chronograph is well documented and despite other claims the Zenith El primero is regarded by many to have achieved that accolade in 1969, this watch bearing the same name and a much-improved movement dates to 2013 and is a perfect tribute to its predecessor, presented in a very wearable 42mm stainless steel case .

The automatic cal 4201 39 jewel movement is visible through the cutaway section on the dial or through the sapphire crystal case back and its impossible not to appreciate the level of workmanship that goes into the 6 months it takes to manufacture this movement.

The black dial features the intricate cutaway for viewing the superb movement along with chronograph sub dial and a power reserve running up to 50hours .

The watch appears to be unworn or at the very least incredibly well looked after, even the black crocodile strap shows no sign of wear, and the steel deployment clasp is in superb condition

This is a superb watch that represents incredible value for money.

The watch comes complete with

Zinth card dated January 2012
Zenith El Primero hard backed book
Inner and outer boxes
