The rebirth of a legend, Chronomaster Sport collection, marks the beginning of a new era for the quintessential Zenith sporty-chic chronograph. This model is capable of measurements with an accuracy of 1/10th of a second.
Pushing the boundaries of high-frequency precision, the Chronomaster Sport is the culmination point in Zenith’s unequaled legacy of automatic chronographs that combines the spirit of the El Primero A386, the form of the Chronomaster De Luca and the high-frequency performance established by the El Primero caliber for over 50 years in a sporty chronograph like no other.
Zenith has built on the foundation of the El Primero caliber with a marked increase in performance directly perceptible by the user. The new El Primero 3600 caliber offers even more performance and precision than its forebearer, with its ultra-readable 1/10th of a second display etched directly on its black ceramic bezel.
The unique heritage of this emblematic chronograph line unfolds with a more refined dial, an integrated steel bracelet with optimized comfort, enhanced finishing details, and an ever more accurate search for proportions and an extremely precise tenth of a second reading.
Comes in a sleek and robust steel case measuring 41 mm wide with pump-style pushers, the polished black ceramic bezel sets the new Chronomaster Sport apart from its predecessors. Graduated over 10 seconds, its bold contrast offers exceptional legibility on the periphery of the dial. The Chronomaster Sport comes in two references.
Whether the black or white dial features the signature El Primero tri-color chronograph registers in blue, anthracite and light grey, just like the A386 from 1969, each counter graduated to 60 for intuitive and instantaneous reading the chronograph.
Befitting the modern yet timeless aesthetic of this exceptional chronograph, the Chronomaster Sport comes on an integrated steel bracelet similar to those conceived by Gay Frères, who supplied many of Zenith’s metal bracelets in the past. A textured Cordura-effect rubber strap option with a steel deployment buckle is also available.
The Chronomaster Sport line is equipped with a new version of the Manufacture’s most renowned movement, dubbed the El Primero 3600 caliber. This movement can precisely offer a 1/10th of second display from the 5 Hz (36’000 VpH) escapement, as well as an extended power reserve of 60 hours.
Visible through the sapphire display back, the new architecture is strikingly evident, revealing a blue column wheel and open rotor marked with the five-pointed star Zenith. The Chronomaster Sport asserts itself as a sporty companion for all life’s moments where even a fraction of a second is an instance of performance.
The Chronomaster Sport is the culmination of over 50 years of mastery of the sporty chronograph and the automatic chronograph caliber. Equipped with the latest generation of the El Primero chronograph caliber, it measures and displays elapsed time with a precision of 1/10th of a second in a contemporary design yet unmistakably Zenith.
