Defy el PriMero 21

DA MAN - Caliber - - WATCHLAB -

of a sec­ond, the El Primero 21 eas­ily does hun­dredths of a sec­ond.

In or­der to do that, the move­ment was de­signed to have the chrono­graph com­pli­ca­tion func­tion sep­a­rately from the ba­sic watch move­ment. On the skele­tonized dial ver­sion, you can ob­serve the com­pli­cacy of this “en­gine.” There’s so much to ad­mire, too: From the con­stantly piv­ot­ing sec­onds (the three­legged star) at 9 o’clock to the chrono­graph mech­a­nism it­self.

Now, this kind of move­ment isn’t ac­tu­ally new. But what does make it spe­cial is the sim­ple fact that Zenith has pre­pared this par­tic­u­lar move­ment for mass pro­duc­tion. It’s pretty fea­si­ble that fu­ture chrono­graphs will have the same ca­pa­bil­i­ties, all thanks to Zenith.
