Zenith  - Chronomaster Sport Faster, sleeker and sportier than ever

Zenith Chronomaster Sport Faster, sleeker and sportier than ever

The Chronomaster Sport asserts itself as a sporty companion for all of life’s moments. The new El Primero 3600 caliber delivers even higher performance and precision than its predecessor

The year 2021 got off to a good start for Zenith, which unveiled at the LVMH Watch Week its new Chronomaster Sport collection, triggering an avalanche of strongly contrasting reactions. The first good news was that this watch with its strong personality leaves no one indifferent. It has become essential in this day and age to make an impact and to flaunt bold aesthetic choices. Especially since the chromatic trilogy of counters on a white or black dial, framed by a generous black polished ceramic bezel, appeals far more than it repels. This historical reminder of the 1969 A386 with its anthracite, blue and light gray chronograph counters is a delight for collectors. They also appreciate the evolution of the pushers now of the pump-type variety, the more elegant finishing as well as the more harmonious proportions characterizing the entire 41mm case, water-resistant to 100m and also well suited to women’s wrists (on this theme, read the interview on this watch by the Editor-inChief of WorldTempus by scanning the QR code). Very popular among contemporary watch lovers looking for all-in-one models, the integrated steel bracelet is also featured on the new Chronomaster Sport, although the option of a cordura-effect textured rubber strap (blue or black, with a steel folding clasp) remains available for those who so wish. Watch lovers’ favorable impression of Zenith stems not only from the cool attitude exuded by its models and its CEO Julien Tornare, but also from its outstanding technical heritage.

Half a Century of Chronograph Experience

Renowned since 1969 as an iconic highfrequency chronograph movement – and the first automatic one of this kind – due to its stature as the world’s most efficient and accurate caliber, the El Primero designed by Zenith regularly benefits from improvements made possible by the evolution of knowledge and technology, as well as by the experience of several generations of customers who have tested and approved it. Its reputation remains unrivalled. This legendary self-winding in-house movement powers the new Chronomaster Sport, enabling it to measure time to the nearest 1/10th of a second and display it as accurately as possible on its black bezel bearing a white graduated scale. For lovers of fine mechanics, the caseback stages a striking show starring a blue column wheel and an openworked oscillating weight cut into the shape of the five-pointed Zenith star. It offers a comfortable power reserve stretching beyond two days. Contemporary and sporty, robust and elegant, while endowed with technical content worthy of the finest Swiss watchmaking traditions, the Zenith Chronomaster Sport is a safe choice that comes with a price tag confined to four figures.
