Time to Reach Your Star


The Zenith x Bamford Watch Department Chronomaster El Primero is made in a 42mm steel case that's given an entirely matte finish. The burnt brown dial has a gradient effect with a red chronograph minutes counter that's made to resemble a radar.
Originally unveiled in 1969 as the world’s first automatic chronograph calibre, the El Primero remains one of the most revered movements over 50 years later; a testament to its unrivaled precision. The combination of a high-frequency 5Hz escapement, automatic winding and a column-wheel clutching system continues to set the standard.
