Zenith El Primero ChronoMaster 1997 (the 'San Gabriel')

Sep 13, 2020,08:13 AM

This one's on its way to me right now so these are stock photos. A 1990s watch with a 1960s movement in a 1940s look. It seems a little odd to have an integrated automatic chronograph movement presented as a manual-wind vintage watch but I'd rather see this as enjoying the best of both worlds.

Especialy that enemal dial!

Hi. Is it enamel? I didn’t know that.

It’s based off the ChronoMaster line that Zenith produced in the mid-late 1990s of which the moon phase is perhaps the most well known. Can you share some more info on the use of enamel? That would be most helpful.

I remember

Reading this back in the days when it was released. Just like the first Chronomaster 410...

Special and beautiful. [nt]
