Swiss watchmaker Zenith has just celebrated the opening of the brand’s one and only boutique. The Zenith Manufacture Boutique is located in the company’s own facility in Le Locle, Switzerland. As part of the experience of visiting the boutique, guests will be offered a special opportunity to purchase a watch from the brand’s complete current collection. To mark the occasion, Zenith has launched the Chronomaster Original Boutique Edition, a special execution of the El Primero steel chronograph with the brand’s brilliant blue applied to the dial and paired with silver chronograph subdials.
The movement within the watch is, of course, the 5Hz El Primero 3600 self-winding caliber, which enables the brand’s famed 1/10th of a second chronograph function. That means that, as opposed to traditional chronographs where the seconds hand goes once around the dial for every minute elapsed, the El Primero 3600’s chronograph seconds hand whizzes around the dial every 10 seconds. The case has stainless steel brushed surfaces and polished accents, with classic pump-style pushers on the right-hand side. Raised and domed crystals cover both the front and back of the watch. Sharp, faceted lugs complete the look of the essential El Primero watch. And being only 38mm in diameter, the Chronomaster Original is comfortable to wear. The Zenith Chronomaster Original Boutique Edition comes on either a vintage-styled blue calfskin leather strap or a three-link stainless steel bracelet.
