As the Patrick Mouratoglou-led UTS 2024 season gears up for its opening matches, Zenith reaffirms its position as the Official Timekeeper, introducing the Chronomaster Sport Titanium and a new line of integrated rubber straps.
Embracing the exhilarating world of tennis, Zenith continues its role as the sponsor and official timekeeper for the UTS, a ground-breaking tennis league conceptualised by celebrated French tennis coach Patrick Mouratoglou.
Conceived by Mouratoglou in 2020, UTS is designed to be an innovative tennis tour, bringing the game closer to connected audiences and breaking with the traditionally strict discipline imposed on players.
The UTS format includes four quarters of eight minutes each, reduced time between points, no second serve, unlimited coaching from the sidelines, and strategic use of bonus cards by players.
Known for its dynamic format, UTS aims to engage a younger and wider audience while allowing players to express themselves more freely on the court. The 2024 season kicks off in Oslo, setting the stage for the debut of Zenith’s latest sporty chronograph, the Chronomaster Sport Titanium, and its accompanying range of integrated rubber straps.
Patrick Mouratoglou shared his enthusiasm for the partnership, stating: “The Chronomaster Sport Titanium is more than a watch for us. It’s a symbol of how important time is in UTS. For me, our partnership with Zenith is not just about keeping time; it’s about making every tennis moment count.”
The Chronomaster Sport Titanium marks a significant leap in performance and endurance, featuring a case made of grade 5 titanium. Renowned for its lightweight properties compared to steel, titanium ensures unhindered motion and balance, making it ideal for sports.
Additionally, its high strength-to-density ratio guarantees robustness, corrosion resistance, and protection from external magnetic fields. The 41mm case showcases a predominantly satin-brushed finish, with a sunburst satin-brushed decoration on the engraved bezel.
To enhance the sporty aesthetic, Zenith introduces a range of integrated rubber straps crafted from durable FKM rubber. These straps, available in black, blue, green, and white, perfectly complement the Chronomaster Sport Titanium and are also available for separate purchase.
The Chronomaster Sport Titanium houses the latest El Primero calibre, the El Primero 3600, with a high frequency of 5 Hz and a true 1/10th of a second indication. The movement boasts an extended power reserve of 60 hours and a contemporary design visible through the sapphire-glass display back.
Zenith’s commitment to innovation and precision has consistently set it apart in the world of watchmaking. With the Chronomaster Sport Titanium, the brand continues to push boundaries and provide timepieces that align with the needs of athletes and enthusiasts alike.
The Chronomaster Sport Titanium is now available at Zenith boutiques and authorised retailers globally priced at £10,700, further solidifying Zenith’s reputation as a pioneer in the realm of high-performance chronographs.
