1990’s Zenith Elprimero Class 4 Series 9001 0420 400

The Zenith El Primero is regarded as one of the best chronograph movements in the world, that good that Rolex used it in the Daytona for a number of years. This watch was made in a limited run of only 630 pieces with the copper sunburst dial variant. 2650 total units were produced in total across all four dial colors in the ‘classical fifties’ Class 4 series (white, black, blue and copper). An excellent looking watch with hinged lugs and of course the iconic movement. This watch really is a future classic.

Interesting Fact “To test its first El Primero watches, Zenith performed a serious test of the watches. The new watch, featuring Zenith’s brand new El Primero caliber was attached to the landing gear of a Boeing 707. With the watch attached to the plane, the plane then traveled over the Atlantic Ocean, from Paris to New York. Naturally, the watch was subject to extreme environments on the journey, Once back on land, the watch was assessed and to everyone’s surprise, the watch survived and was running well with perfect accuracy.”
