Zenith earns a spot in the watch­mak­ing hall of fame for the El Primero, which it claims is the first – and most ac­cu­rate – au­to­matic chronograph in his­tory. It’s been 51 years since its de­but and the cal­i­bre now comes in 23 it­er­a­tions, some of them paired with other, more elab­o­rate, com­pli­ca­tions like tour­bil­lons and minute re­peaters. Its straight­for­ward de­sign hasn’t var­ied much over the years, though mod­ern El Primeros some­times sport coloured sub-di­als or open­ings that re­veal parts of the move­ment. ($11,900)
