Zenith x Bamford Chronomaster El Primero Solar Blue Limited Edition for MR. PORTER

Zenith x Bamford Chronomaster El Primero Solar Blue Limited Edition for MR. PORTER

Perfect Replica

The Zenith Chronomaster El Primero Solar Blue is a unique activity. Exclusive for MR. PORTER , this ‘three sided’ limited edition is a synergistic development by Zenith and British watch customizer Bamford Watch Department. It is further proof that MR. PORTER is strengthening its watch activities and offerings, with an ever increasing number of brands in its portfolio and various exclusive editions. This will come as nothing unexpected after Richemont’s securing of Yoox Net-a-Porter.

Based on the Heritage 146 model , this limited edition watch includes a few authentic plan signs suggestive of vintage Zenith stopwatches, specifically, a tachymeter propelled by a 1971 El Primero fueled chronograph. The solar blue dial offers a slope and profundity of shading. With its white marking transmitting at its outskirts, it is a genuine eye-catcher, feeling altogether current and new.

The retro-roused steel case is only 38mm in breadth, a size for which numerous idealists have a soft spot. It is elegant, well-proportioned and downplayed. It includes a meager bezel, a domed sapphire precious stone, powerful cutaway carries and cool ‘mushroom’ pushers.

Turning the watch over, the exhibition caseback offers a wonderful perspective on the famous El Primero type – which implies a programmed, high-recurrence, coordinated section wheel chronograph ( ). The development comes in the 4069 form with hours, minutes, little seconds, a focal chronograph second hand and a 30 min aggregator for chronograph minutes and no date. Its accuracy is confirmed by the COSC.

A naval force blue Alcantara tie with white sewing sets the last touch and matches the out of control dark blue dial.

If the ‘Solar Blue’ (and the eponymous limited edition watch) sounds moving, don’t burn through any time fantasizing. This limited edition is delivered in 25 pieces just and it should sell out lovely quick. It is accessible exclusively with MR. PORTER, here . at a cost of USD   For more information on Zenith, visit .
