ONE FOR THE ROAD

An auto-in­spired Zenith time­piece cou­pled with a match­ing watch winder

Robb Report (Malaysia) - - Ultimate Gift Guide - By CE­LINE YAP

Zenith’s El Primero was born in 1969 and in that same year, Land Rover in­tro­duced its first lux­ury off- road ve­hi­cle, the Range Rover. The part­ner­ship be­tween th­ese two trail­blaz­ing brands started in 2016 with the El Primero Range Rover Spe­cial Edi­tion and con­tin­ues this year with the Chrono­mas­ter El Primero Range Rover Ve­lar. Ve­lar, of course, is the lat­est model launched in 2017 as Range Rover’s most re­fined SUV yet.

More un­der­stated than the orig­i­nal model, this time­piece high­lights the part­ner­ship with its per­fo­rated strap that mim­ics the up­hol­stery pat­tern in the Ve­lar.

Like the chas­sis of the car, the case of the watch is made of alu­minium but to pro­tect it from scratches, Zenith had it treated with black ce­ramic. The re­sult­ing ef­fect pairs beau­ti­fully with the ver­ti­cal brushed char­coal grey dial with cop­per ac­cents. De­signed for ad­ven­ture, this watch is wa­ter re­sis­tant to 100m and made for op­ti­mal func­tion­al­ity as evinced by its ratch­eted crown and black round push­ers. Through the sap­phire case­back, Zenith re­minds you of its spe­cial re­la­tion­ship with Range Roger via an en­grav­ing on the ro­tor. Ex­clu­sively at the Zenith store at Ma­rina Bay Sands, this sporty time­piece comes with a match­ing watch winder to keep it pow­ered up and ready for ad­ven­ture. Gift must be pur­chased by 31 De­cem­ber 2017. Please email ul­ti­mate­gift­guide@ imv.com.sg for en­quiries and to pur­chase. Visit rob­bre­port.com. sg or rob­bre­port. com.my for more de­tails. ≠
