Zenith launches detailed new edition of the El Primero A384 from 1969

Fifty years: now that’s a good reason to celebrate! Following the limited anniversary set comprising three watch models which Zenith presented at the beginning of the year and at Baselworld, the Swiss manufacture now launches a stylish new edition of what is probably the most famous chronograph of all time, the El Primero.

Launched in 1969, this timepiece was a real eye-catcher with its unprecedented and fully integrated automatic calibre, a power reserve of 50 hours, the ability to measure elapsed intervals to the nearest tenth of a second, and a more than bold design. To reproduce this as faithfully as possible, every single component was digitized: from the faceted stainless steel case with a diameter of 37 millimetres to the lacquered, white and black tachymeter dial.

The only differences between the new A384 and the original are the use of a sapphire crystal and a transparent case back to provide a view of the El Primero 400 chronograph calibre. The cool retro look is rounded out by a black alligator leather strap with rubber lining. To the delight of collectors, the El Primero A384 Revival is an unlimited edition.

Since 1865, Zenith excelled in daring and innovation. Soon after its founding in Le Locle by visionary GFJ, Zenith gained recognition for its precision, source of 2.333 chronometry prizes. Famous for its legendary 1969 El Primero caliber accurate to the nearest 1/10th of a second, the Manufacture has since developed over 600 movement variations. Driven by tradition and dynamic, avant-garde thinking, Zenith today offers new vistas in time measurement, including 1/100th of a second timing.
