Zenith Chronomaster Sport, between symbol and precision
After the release of the Chronomaster Revival A385, a reproduction of the world’s first high-frequency automatic chronograph, Zenith unveils the new generation of the Chronomaster Sport.
Anything can change in the course of a second. A race to the finish line, a perfectly kicked ball that marks a goal, an instinctive decision at the crossroads of life – these are the moments that shape the future.
With the new Chronomaster Sport range, the Swiss watchmaker brings together the pillars of its expertise: the spirit of El Primero A385 and the form of the Chronomaster De Luca.
El Primero, the iconic calibre of an innovative company
Zenith created El Primero in 1969. This fully-integrated automatic chronograph was equipped with a movement oscillating at a frequency of 36,600 vibrations per hour. Fifteen years later, manufacturing of El Primero began again, ensuring an extraordinary future to come.
For its new Chronomaster Sport line, Zenith uses its legendary calibre as a starting point and enhances it with a clear increase in performance directly noticeable by the user.
The new El Primero 3600 calibre features exceptionally high precision. It has an ultra-readable 1/10th of a second display engraved directly on the black ceramic bezel. The calibre can be admired through the sapphire crystal case back, a hallmark of the timepiece's striking architecture.
The Chronomaster Sport, an essential companion in all moments of life
Set on an integrated bracelet in steel or textured rubber, the Chronomaster Sport comes in two variants. One has a black dial, while the other has a white dial. In keeping with the design of the A386, both are adorned with three tri-colour chronograph counters in blue, anthracite and light grey. The elements of this trio are graduated to 60 and allow the chronograph to be read intuitively at a glance.
The facetted, rhodium-plated hour markers coated in Super-LumiNova® SLN C1 ensure optimal readability. Moreover, the timepiece is water resistant to 100 metres (10 bar). Lastly, the Chronomaster Sport has a 41 mm case and builds up a 60-hour power reserve.
