Sometimes the most decisive events in life happen in a split second. Crossing the finish line, perfectly hitting the ball, scoring a goal, or even making a spontaneous decision at the crossroads of life are what shape the future. Precisely for those who strive to achieve their dreams, Zenith creates a dynamic and bright chronograph - the new Chronomaster Sport, accurate to 1 / 10th of a second.
The new Chronomaster Sport collection heralds a new era for Zenith's premier sporting yet luxurious chronograph. Once again pushing the boundaries of the most precise high-frequency measurement, the Chronomaster Sport culminates in Zenith's unrivaled heritage in automatic chronographs, combining the character of the El Primero A386, the shape of the Chronomaster De Luci and high performance. This sporty chronograph is unparalleled, both in terms of style and content.
Constantly changing the future of watchmaking, Zenith has made significant gains in movement performance with the El Primero caliber, whose benefits are highly appreciated by users. The new El Primero 3600 caliber offers more powerful performance and precision than its predecessor, and is complemented by an easy-to-read display with an engraved scale on the black ceramic bezel to make it easier to read the readings, shown to 1 / 10th of a second: it is the only watch with such efficiency.
The new creation from the legendary Chronomaster line of chronographs retains the unique heritage of the collection, but with a more refined dial, integrated steel bracelet with the most comfortable shape, refined finishes, more precise proportions and extreme precision to a tenth of a second. The new Chronomaster Sport is presented in an elegant and robust 41 mm steel case with pump buttons. The striking difference between the Chronomaster Sport and its predecessors is the polished black ceramic bezel. It forms a striking contrast to the 10-second scale and provides exceptional legibility on the periphery of the dial.
The Chronomaster Sport is available in two versions. The black and white versions feature the signature El Primero tricolor chronograph counters in blue, anthracite and light gray, just like the 1969 A386. Each counter has a 60-interval scale for an intuitive and immediate reading of the chronograph. In keeping with the modern, yet timeless aesthetics of this exceptional chronograph, the Chronomaster Sport is equipped with an integrated steel bracelet similar to that designed by Guy Frere, the author of many of Zenith's metal bracelets. The watch can also be equipped with a cordura-effect textured rubber strap and a steel folding buckle.
The constantly evolving Chronomaster Sport collection has been enriched with a new version of the most famous in-house movement called the El Primero 3600 caliber. Thanks to the experience gained from over fifty years of El Primero and high-frequency chronographs in general, Zenith is ready to guarantee measurement accuracy to 1/10 of a second at 5 Hz (36'000 vibrations per hour) and an extended 60-hour power reserve. The new architecture of the movement is clearly visible through the sapphire crystal back of the watch: a blue column wheel and an open rotor, adorned with a five-pointed Zenith star.
