Zenith Unveils The Chronomaster Original And It Is Tricolour To The Core

Chronomaster Original

The Zenith Chronomaster Original sports a black tricoloured dial

The modern successor to the Zenith A386, one of the first round-cased steel El Primero reference from 1969, the Chronomaster Original now reinterprets the iconic tricolour dial in black, a first for the historical 1969 case.Chronomaster Original

An Old Concept Modernised

It marks the first time that a black tricolour dial appears in the 38mm steel case originally designed for the A386 in 1969. Much like the Chronomaster Sport line, which features both white and black tricolour dials, the Chronomaster Original line is now completed with a historical white tricolour dial.

Moreover, by making the base black, the other elements also had to be inverted from white to black and vice-versa, including the date wheel in the trapezoid window at 04:30, as well as the 1/10th of a second and 10-second chronograph scales.

Completely Unique

Truly like no other chronograph, the Chronomaster Original features a central red chronograph second hand that completes one rotation of the dial in 10 seconds. The chronograph hand steadily advances every 1/10th of a second.

On top of that, sharing the same overall silhouette and proportions as its historical predecessor from 1969, the Chronomaster Original is crafted in a 38mm round bezel-less steel case with a raised and domed crystal.Chronomaster Original

Still Making History

After over 50 years since changing the trajectory of mechanical chronographs forever, Zenith continues to develop and evolve the El Primero calibre into new iterations that push the limits of performance. It remains the benchmark of precision among automatic chronograph movements.

The sapphire display back provides an unobstructed view of the movement’s contemporary architecture. It features a sleeker and more open design, revealing a blue column wheel and open rotor marked with the five-pointed star Zenith.Chronomaster Original

The Chronomaster Original with black tricolour dial joins the permanent Zenith lineup and is available at Zenith boutiques as well as authorised retailers around the world. Alternatively, you can get one online at the Official Zenith Website.
