Zenith El Primero Chronograph

Zenith El Primero Chronograph


Brand: Zenith
Typology: Modern chronograph
Year: 2019

Founded in 1865 in Le Locle by Georges Favre-Jacot, Zenith quickly earned a reputation as the manufacturer of some of the most precise timepieces of those years achieving the first prize in the chronometry competition of the observatory of Neuchâtel in 1903. 


The Zenith El Primero was the first high frequency, fully integrated, automatic chronograph, the first with a running seconds hand and it was only 6.5 mm thick, even slimmer than traditional chronographs.


The iconic El Primero colors are once again featured on this emblematic Zenith model with the reference 03.2040.400/69.C494. The case on this watch is stainless steel and measures 42mm.
