Zenith El Primero Skeleton

Zenith introduces its new model El Primero Skeleton, which reveals in a 45 mm black ceramic case the mechanism through a fascinating chiaroscuro openworked design.

A new arrival at Zenith, ceramic enters the collection and houses here the El Primero Calibre 400B, heir to the world’s most precise series-made chronograph developed by Zenith in 1969. It is revealed through a deep black openworked dial enlivened by red accents. Its 36,000 VpH cadence drives the ruthenium-blackened, facetted and luminescent hands sweeping over matching hour-markers. Openworked counters and a minute ring screw secured to the movement enhance this three-dimensional display.

Made of black ceramic, the 45 mm-diameter case and the skeleton dial convey a view on the El Primero Skeleton dial. The El Primero Skeleton chronograph movement presents a tenth-of-a-second display and powers central hours and minutes, small seconds, chronograph and date functions. This model has an over 50-hour power reserve.


The watch is fitted with a black rubber strap coated with carbon fibre and a titanium and black PVD-treated triple folding clasp.
