Limited Edition Zenith Chronomaster El Primero ‘Radar’ Matte
Contact for Details
The Chronomaster El Primero Radar, limited to 50 pieces, draws inspiration from Zenith’s archive pieces, especially a 1916 pocket watch with red accents all over the dial, while looking steadfast to the future. Available exclusively at Zenith Boutiques, the Radar reimagines the signature Zenith chronograph in a striking new manner, keeping the essentials while introducing new design codes.
The stainless steel case is given a matte finish all over, including the crown and pushers. The El Primero tri-compax dial with oversized counters is revisited with a few unique twists, fashioned in a burnt brown hue that darkens towards the edge for a striking visual impact. Sharply contrasting around its periphery is a white tachymeter scale, with a radial design, featured in numerous historical El Primero watches.
Each of the three chronograph subdials is different, further highlighting the uniqueness of this collaborative series. On the left, the small seconds display features concentric circles that recall the design of vintage Zenith watches. The chronograph hour totalizer at 6 o’clock features a more traditional Chronomaster design, while the minutes counter at 3 o’clock befits the Radar name with its bold red register that glows in the dark with SuperLuminova for a “night vision” effect.
The finishing touch that truly sets the Chronomaster El Primero Radar apart and emphasizes the theme is the strap, made of rubber with a cordura effect on top. With a vintage vibe yet modern construction, the strap features double stitching with red threads.
