new Zenith Chronomaster El Primero Range Rover Velar Special Edition

Following the launch of the El Primero Range Rover Special Edition last October, Zenith and Land Rover are once again celebrating their creative relationship by presenting the new Chronomaster El Primero Range Rover Velar Special Edition on occasion of the 2017 Geneva International Motor Show.

The new Zenith Chronomaster El Primero Range Rover Velar Special Edition review (ref. 24.2042.400/27.R799) is water resistant to 100 metres / 330 feet.

The new timepiece features a brushed grey dial with copper-toned details, and a new black rubber strap coated with black-toned perforated calfskin leather of the same high quality used on Range Rovers and secured by a triple folding clasp in DLC-treated titanium.

The hour-markers and the hands are copper colour-plated, faceted and coated with Super-LumiNova SLN C1 for excellent legibility even in poor light conditions.

The 42 mm ceramised aluminum case houses the El Primero 400B automatic movement, fast beating at 36,000 vibrations per hour.

Zenith El Primero Tourbillon Skeleton and El Primero Skeleton Intense Black

=&0=& unveiled two new interpretations of the El Primero automatic chronograph where an imposing 45 mm-diameter case crafted from black ceramic frames an openworked dial which showcases the complexities of the fast-paced 5 Hz (36,000 vph) movement.

The three-dimensional effect of the dial is reinforced by the ruthenium-blackened, faceted hands sweeping over matching hour-markers, all treated with Super-LumiNova. Red accents enhance the sporty traits of these timepieces.

The first model, the =&1=&, is equipped with the El Primero Calibre 400B powering central hours and minutes, small seconds, chronograph and date functions.

 

Housing the El Primero Calibre 403, the =&2=& has an even more avant-garde look thanks to the tourbillon carriage at 11 o’clock which performs one rotation per minute, the openworked chronograph counters forming a figure eight and the minute ring screw-secured to the movement.

 

Both movements offer more than 50 hours of power reserve.

The strong character of the two new models is enhanced by a black rubber strap – perforated for the tourbillon version and carbon fibre-coated for the chronograph – fitted with a titanium and black PVD-treated triple folding clasp.

A Review Of Zenith El Primero Original 1969 Watch

A Review Of Zenith El Primero Original 1969 Watch

Not all chronographs are created equal – and if there ever was one to rightfully claim to be superior to at least most of the others, then that’s the El Primero caliber. The Zenith El Primero Original 1969 watch, contrary to its name, is a relatively new piece from Zenith, albeit one that promises to remain authentic to an original design with which Zenith debuted its remarkable chronograph movement family.

If you are the type of watch lover keen on owning a piece of haute horlogerie, but for whatever reason do not wish to, or simply cannot go for a minute repeater or a tourbillon, your best option is probably to just get a chronograph. For its sheer complexity, even to this day, the chronograph remains one of the most challenging-to-make complications – yes, even more complex than a perpetual calendar or a tourbillon, as echoed by numerous master watch makers I discussed this topic with. The history behind the Zenith El Primero further proves this point.

It was during the 1960s that four major brands (along with some others) got into cut-neck competition over creating the first automatic chronograph wristwatch. Heuer and Breitling collaborated (with the help of Hamilton, Buren, and Dubois-Depraz), while Seiko and Zenith were pretty much on their own. Who actually was first remains the topic of heated – and I’m sorry, but rather pointless – debate to this day. You get a different answer when you consider who was the first to debut the movement, the first to produce working prototypes, or the first to bring it to the market.

Over the years, Zenith has modified the El Primero in countless ways, adding complex calendars and even gimbal-suspended escapements (hands-on here) to it. And yet, as briefly discussed above, the complexity of this “base” movement is already truly remarkable. Luckily, the Zenith El Primero Original 1969 comes with a sapphire crystal case-back, exposing the strikingly beautiful and indeed very technical-looking movement inside. The large, skeletonized automatic rotor runs on seven ball bearings, and sports a skeletonized Zenith star logo in its center, along with wide Geneva striping and some bold “Zenith El Primero Manufacture Le Locle” scripts engraved.

Once you look behind the rotor, machine-finished parts of very high quality are revealed. While the El Primero looks very impressive at first, one has to bear in mind that it was designed to be a tool, a device, a workhorse movement – and upon closer inspection, that shows. Comparing this Zenith El Primero to some other movements is like comparing a 4.0 liter flat six from a 911 to a roaring V12 from a Lamborghini: one was designed to work tirelessly, rain or shine, while the other is rather more delicate, finicky, and impresses in a more exotic way.
