Zenith Only Watch 2013

Zenith donates the only prototype ever produced to develop and test the El Primero Stratos designed for Felix Baumgartner, the first supersonic man in history.

The EL PRIMERO STRATOS FLYBACK STRIKING 10TH TRIBUTE TO FELIX BAUMGARTNER - PROTOTYPE I/I - the one-of-a-kind prototype developed by the Manufacture - will be sold at the Only Watch 2013 charity auction.

In 1969, Zenith effectively launched the El Primero calibre by placing it on the landing gear of a Boeing 747 on the famous Paris-New York flight.

In 2012, Zenith achieved a new historical feat as the creator of the first watch to break the sound barrier (attaining a speed of Mach 1.25) in direct contact with the exterior. Resistant to sudden changes in pressure and temperature, as well as to extreme vibrations, this timepiece is a concentrated blend of the brand’s identity codes: the three colours of the iconic counters are all there; the mechanism beats at the high frequency of the El Primero movement and the model also features the Flyback and Striking 10th functions.
