“What a beautiful watch!” a French ex-Minister of culture might have exclaimed. The first impressions are pretty flattering. On the wrist, it gives an immediate feeling of fulfillment. The large case, designed to be both sober and up to date, is there to make you forget yourself right away, with its splendid dial, so beautifully conceived the eye never tires of looking at it.

A work of art, with reflections that play from rose gold to silver guilloche - A real dance floor on which the turning hands give a unique performance to the sheer pleasure of mechanism lovers… The “Open” dial gives pride of place to the movement that beats at a rhythm of 36,000 alternations per hour. From the first, the time-piece on your wrist a time-piece won’t leave you cold, everything it says to you is constantly shifting. Some love to contemplate the Breton countryside’s ever-changing form and colors for hours; others take the same pleasure in their watch. This one is just what they’ve been looking for!

Zenith has always been among the jewels of Swiss watch-making and the El Primero collection brings the manufacturer even closer to perfection. That’s why it’s worth repeating, Zenith is still one of best value for money brands on the luxury the watch market. The market is increasingly beset by brands that claim a quality of manufacture and level of mechanical sophistication they don’t always live up to. At Zenith, the philosophy of Thierry Nataf is entirely the reverse.

The Locle engineers couldn’t have chosen a better mechanism for manufacturing their new frontrunner than the house’s legendary El Primero. At Zenith, as elsewhere, you don’t change a winning team. As a result, we get to enjoy the pleasure of admiring, for the first time, both sides of a new version of the new El Primero 4021 caliber, itself a version of Zenith’s most famous watch movement, created in 1969, and unanimously declared “best movement in the world” for its high performance and reliability.

“Short time” chronography, up to 30 minutes in tenths of a second. Second hand at the centre and minute counter at 3 o’clock set off by the button at 2 o’clock, set back to zero at 4 o’clock. Easy to hold, clear, precise passages, good legibility of times metered.

Over 50-hours power reserve with indicator at 6 o’clock (power reserve hand in yellow gold to distinguish it from the steel hour hands.)

Above all, the Grand Chronomaster Open XXT timepiece is built to a successful avant-garde design, it’s a chronograph for the city that will attract modern businessmen and enthusiasts that appreciate a great mechanism more easily than the accomplished sportsman seeking a highly functional machine that’s legible in any type of weather or conditions. The Chronomaster Open is 100% pleasure and 100% passion.

In 1865 in the town of Le Locle in the Swiss Jura, visionary watchmaker George Favre-Jacot was driven by the idea of creating the most accurate and reliable watches of his time. He revolutionized the way of producing timepieces by bringing together the entire range of watchmaking professions under one roof. In doing so, he facilitated the systematic control of each component and that of the complete mechanism. Regrouping these skills in one place significantly spurred the progress of production techniques, and Zenith was indeed thus able to produce the most precise and reliable watches ever. To this day, Zenith remains one of the rare manufacturers capable of producing all parts of its watches, and the Zenith Chronomaster XXT Open Automatic reaps the rewards of all that history.

The Zenith brand offers watches of the highest quality matched with incredible style. 

This watch is art for the wrist. This is an exceedingly rare wristwatch with more wrist presence than you could imagine. Complicated watches are great to begin with, but combine the complication with the stepped curved case and the movement assembly and you have a watch you will definitely not want to take off. And, depending on your mood, this watch can serve as a conversation started par excellence.

The rear sapphire crystals permit viewing the caliber in great detail. While this case shape looks great, its style is overshadowed only by its comfort.


What a great watch!!!!
