Zenith equips its Elite Chronograph classic with the El Primero calibre 4069.

Having seen success with its Elite 6150 model, Zenith has expanded the same collection with a new chronograph equipped with the El Primero movement.

In a blend of classicism and modernity, the new elite chronograph classic beats at the high frequency of El Primero calibre 4069. Its 42 mm steel or rose gold case frames a restrained dial featuring engraved hour-markers and slender leaf-type hands.

A direct descendant of the world’s most precise series-made chronograph produced by Zenith in 1969, the automatic El Primero calibre 4069 perpetuates the key assets of its legendary heritage: its integrated column-wheel construction and its rhythm of 36,000 vibrations per hour guaranteeing tenth-of-a-second precision.

Available in stainless steel or pink gold versions, the ultra-thin 42 mm-diameter case features a characteristic pebble shape, enhanced by a fluted crown and rectangular push pieces. Its flowing curves are underscored by ergonomic lugs ensuring a perfect fit on the wrist.
