Zenith adds tenth of a second timer to a skeletonised El Primero


Zenith has added a tenth of a second display to its El Primero chronograph, made possible by its El Primero 400B caliber beating at 36,000 vibrations per hour.

The El Primero 36’000 VpH chronograph, inspired by a vintage lightweight series,  has an imposing 45 mm steel case with a skeletonised dial carrying three anthracite, blue and light grey counters.

Delivering a blend of performance and precision, the El Primero 400B calibre and its 326 components are powered by an oscillating weight adorned with “Côtes de Genève” mark of approval.

It drives the central hours and minutes, small seconds, chronograph, tachymeter and date functions, while ensuring an over 50-hour power reserve.
