The direct descendant of El Primero, the Zenith Chronomaster is its most emblematic classic-modern incarnation. To celebrate the fabled model that gave rise to it, the second watch in the case is the new Chronomaster 2.0, equipped with a latest generation El Primero engine and black ceramic bezel. Renamed El Primero 3600, this high-frequency caliber, oscillating at 36,000 vibrations per hour, achieves the feat of accurately measuring 1/10ths of a second and offering direct reading on the dial and bezel.
The renamed El Primero 3600 high-frequency caliber is capable of accurately measuring one tenth of a second and offering direct reads on the dial and bezel. This watch relies on the Striking 10th concept, which allows the seconds hand to rotate not once per minute, but every 10 seconds. So, the chronograph hand can make one dial turn on 10 seconds, indicating at each jump the tenth of a second on a scale graduated from 1 to 100.
The 42mm case is made of stainless-steel with a transparent case back, which allows to view the inner workings of the mechanical movement. Mounted to the case is an external, graduated bezel made of black ceramic, engraved with a white graduated scale running from 1 to 100, to countdown the aforementioned 10th of a second.
It also comes equipped with two push-pieces to operate the chronograph functions, with a setting-crown in-between them. In essence we have the standard Chronomaster case with the distinctively spaced out lugs, but with a larger diameter. All topped by a sapphire crystal, which assists with water-resistance on this watch reading up to 100 meters (330 feet).
Power reserve on this watch can last up to 60 hours.
Mounted to this watch is a black leather strap with exposed contrasting red stitching, secured to the wrist by a stainless-steel buckle. This watch was not sold separately, it is part of a limited edition box-set of only 50 manufactured series.
If you are interested in the Defy 21 I have also listed it for sale. If you are interested in the entire box set including the steel A386 Revival please contact me.
