This season, Zenith is honoring its 150th anniversary. They lately demonstrated us a correctly impressive watch, the Zenith Academy Georges Favre-Jacot, a technically advanced watch having a superb Fusee-Chain complication. However, it was clearly insufficient and also at Baselworld 2015, the company demonstrated us more. Among the people from the new collection might not be probably the most impressive from a technical perspective, it's however a genuine elegance along with a very appealing look. This is actually the new Zenith El Primero Chronograph Classic.

The Zenith El Primero Chronograph Classic, as pointed out in the title, depends on the legendary Zenith’s in-house chronograph movement. Don’t expect the novelty to become here. However, as basic and classic this watch is, it remains a great surprise from Zenith, which comes here having a true elegance, a really refined look and also the right dosage of vintage feeling. This Zenith El Primero Chronograph Classic is about proportions and ease - for this reason we like it. It's not probably the most breathtaking watch from Baselworld 2015 but it's (almost) all perfect.

The situation - obtainable in rose gold or perhaps in stainless - measures 42mm and shows a comparatively slim profil - 11mm - along with lengthy but highly curved lugs that completely enfolds the wrist. The form is round, highly polished and even when completely new for Zenith, it reminds of nineteen fifties / sixties classical chronographs. Exactly the same comments can be created for that crown - rather slim and small - and also the large rectangular but well integrated pushers.

Rival other models from the famous in-house movement, the dial from the Zenith El Primero Chronograph Classic have been highly washed. It just shows two sub-counters - a little second at 9 along with a 30-minute counter at 3 - and will get rid from the date feature. It just shows the logo design and title of the trademark and discreet, thin fonts and tracks. The silvery plate from the dial is blown having a sun-burst pattern and highly domed, once more to have an elegant vintage feeling. It arrives with polished hands and applied indexes matching using the situation. The general look is clean, elegant, discreet and incredibly well proportioned. It in some way reminds us from the lately revealed Piaget Altiplano Chronograph, having a more round design.

Behind this dial ticks a symbol: the Zenith El Primero. This movement - here known as calibre 4069 - is proven to be one of the first automatic chronograph actions and among the simply to include a higher frequency, because it ticks at 5hz or 36.000 bhp. The chronograph is actuated with a (blued) column-wheel along with a vertical clutch - for both a much better precision and feeling. The movement from the Zenith El Primero Chronograph Classic boasts 50 hrs of energy reserve and shows enjoyable finishes - perlage around the primary plate and bridges, straight graining around the levers and Geneva stripes around the oscillating weight.

The Zenith El Primero Chronograph Classic is clearly a really interesting creation in the brand that people usually expect around the sports watch range. The clean dial, the right proportions and also the true elegance of the watch really are a real surprise. Congratulations. The Zenith El Primero Chronograph Classic is going to be listed at 8.400 USD in stainless and 21.500 USD in rose gold.
