Zenith El Primero Revival A384 Edge of Space Limited Edition
Mr Porter, the award-winning online destination for men’s style, has once again partnered with Zenith and British watch customiser Bamford Watch Department in creating an exclusive limited-edition timepiece which was entirely developed and produced in-house at Zenith’s Manufacture. The El Primero Revival A384 Edge of Space Limited Edition, with only 50 produced, will be available for sale on 18 November 2019. This is the second collaboration between the three parties, having launched last year’s sell-out success, the Solar Blue.
Inspired by the Zenith El Primero Revival A384 model, the watch takes inspiration from several of the brand’s historical design elements. These subtle touches include the tachymeter, which references back to a 1984/86 El Primero, sub dials inspired by the calibre 146-HP from 1970, aesthetic reminders of a vintage chronograph case alongside vintage dial text font restored from the original A384.

The unique “Edge of Space” blue dial is framed by a 37mm titanium micro blasted case, housing the El Primero 400 Automatic calibre.
The timepiece is fitted with a navy blue Cordura-effect rubber strap featuring minimal white stitching designed to complement the white dial markings. Combining all of these various touchpoints, Zenith, Bamford Watch Department and MR PORTER have created a watch that is both familiar and yet altogether minimal and modern.
Each of these limited-edition watches will feature a special open case-back engraved and individually numbered one to 50. It is priced at €8,900 EUR / £7,200 GBP / $8,600 USD and can be ordered here.
