A Closer Look At The New Zenith Elite Chronograph

A Closer Look At The New Zenith Elite Chronograph

Postby koimaster » May 3rd 2016, 9:14am

Zenith caught us by surprise back in 2015 when they introduced a very handsome dress chronograph called the El Primero Chronograph Classic. We're used to mostly sporty stuff from the Le Locle manufacture nowadays, but we nonetheless enjoyed the simplicity of the watch, which reminded us that chronographs can be elegant complications when they want to be.

The model did very well, beating Zenith’s own expectations, or so we are told, and encouraging them to introduce an interesting follow up only 12 months later. The new iteration – renamed the Elite Chronograph Classic, and moved to the Elite collection – is everything its older brother was, with the exception of the dial, which has gone from a steely silver to a beautiful deep blue. It went mostly under the radar at Baselworld 2016, but deserves a closer look.
