The first. The original. When it was unveiled in 1969, the El Primero was nothing short of groundbreaking, being the very first automatic, integrated high-frequency chronograph on the market. After over half a century, it remains one of the most revered automatic chronograph calibres around. The combination of a high-frequency 5Hz escapement, automatic winding and a column-wheel clutching system provide it with unparalleled precision and robustness. Today, the El Primero exists in several variations to accommodate additional functions and complications.
