This week, Hodinkee and Zenith announced their latest collaboration – Zenith Chronomaster Original Limited Edition For Hodinkee, a spin on the classic Chronomaster Original Hodinkee Edition. This comes in a long series by the New York-based Hodinkee in their decade-long series of collaborations with companies like ochs und junior MB&F, Hermès, Omega, Swatch, Rolex, and Casio.
Hodinkee began the design process by outfitting the classic 1969 Chronomaster El Primero with a matte salmon opaline dial, providing a dynamic and warm backdrop for the classic Zenith dial configuration. “We feature a trio of overlapping, galvanic sub-dials awash in complementary shades of grey and silver,” said Hodinkee. “This latest creation looks very much the sibling to our original Zenith collaboration, replete with our usual touch of grey. The watch offers a delightfully unexpected moment of color, it’s a playful take on the Chronomaster A386 that ensures this latest collaboration has a unique presence.”
Beyond the tones, the 38mm watch case and dial are enclosed with a raised sapphire crystal, flanked by familiar pump-style pushers and brushed lugs. The watch’s polished edges and folding clasp ensure the look and feel of a modern high-performance sports watch. The Zenith Chronomaster Original Limited Edition For Hodinkee was available as a 300-piece limited edition for $9,500 through the HODINKEE Shop and ZENITH’s online boutique but has sold out as of press time.
