In celebration of the new Lunar Year of the Rabbit, I wish to share my Zenith Chronomaster Sport in white dial, which I purchased and had it in my collection for more than a year. I particularly sought out this very model to compare the aesthetics with the similar RD model and to enjoy the famed El Primero mechanical movement. It was never a dull moment looking at the dial and subdials including the racing 10 seconds hand which runs similarly to the Zenith Defy Skyline.
Like most comments from collectors and enthusiasts, I think the bracelet can be further improved but one can certainly notice its similarity to the aforementioned RD model. No complaint though on the three colors subdials which gave Zenith its original identity. The ceramic bezel is a sight to behold and the chronograph pushers make one feel amazed that the timepiece can still be submerged in water without doing a “screw lock” on the pusher. Lastly the date wheel at 4:30 has similar white background that blends nicely with the dial.
Apart from the recently launched Skyline Skeleton, I am so looking forward to the “rabbit” that will be pulled out of Zenith Magician hat this year! 😊
Happy Chinese New Year! Gong Xi Fa Cai!
