ZENITH Chronomaster Charles Vermot and Star Open Steel

Just a couple of weeks before Baselworld 2014 will officially take place, here is a preview of two timepieces from the collections the Le Locle based manufacture will release to the general public. And this just after having previously described, on Horbiter – Watches & Luxury , two prestigious limited edition models from the Pilot collection, the 1903 and the Tribute to the Aviazione Navale (just 50 pieces made of each). These are two intriguing models as they both confirm how crucial the El Primero caliber is in ZENITH ’s watchmaking. And they testify once more the overwhelming creative energy coming from the maison. They are the ZENITH El Primero Chronomaster Tribute to Charles Vermot and the ZENITH El Primero Star Open Steel .

The ZENITH El Primero Chronomaster Tribute to Charles Vermot is a 1,975 pieces limited edition of the Chronomaster Power Reserve, a complicated version of the classic El Primero chronograph, showcasing the Power Reserve at 6 o’clock (50 hours), a small seconds hand at 9 o’clock inside the opening made on the dial, and a 30-minute chrono counter placed at 3 o’clock. “The smiling timepiece” is definitely ZENITH ’s trademark.

Charles Vermot is a major character in ZENITH ’s recent history; he is the master watchmaker who, in the mid-seventies, saved drawings and tools used to realize the El Primero calibre from extinction. The property, at the time, was willing to invest massively just in quartz watchmaking. This is the second edition in a row named after him, supporting a 42mm wide case and a nice blue dial, priced at 7,500€.

The ZENITH Star Open Steel is the first Star Open timepiece made of steel, with no diamonds. It is a ZENITH best seller, priced at 6,600€ and dedicated to those women who love fine mechanics. Because on both models the transparent case back is a truly pleasurable sight: 4 tiny screws secure the back to the case and to the El Primero caliber, which exhibits a Cotes de Geneve finished rotor with the ZENITH star, and shines in all its magnificent beauty.
