In 1969, Zenith effectively launched the El Primero calibre by placing it on the landing gear of a Boeing 747 on the famous Paris-New York flight. Fully living up to the high expectations for this legendary movement, the watch was running as smoothly upon arrival as it had at the time of departure.

In 2012, it was from even higher, on the very edge of space, that Manufacture achieved a new historical feat as the creator of the very first watch to break the sound barrier (attaining a speed of Mach 1.25) in direct contact with the exterior. Resistant to sudden changes in pressure and temperature, as well as to extreme vibrations, this exceptional watch is a concentrated blend of the brand’s identity codes: the three colours of the iconic counters are all there; the mechanism beats at the high frequency of the El Primero movement, the world’s first automatic chronograph calibre; and the model also features the Flyback and Striking 10 th (displaying tenths of a second via the sweep seconds-hand) functions.

WATCH INFORMATION SUMMED UP IN ONE SENTENCE

Unique prototype tested for the development of the El Primero Stratos honouring Felix Baumgartner, the first supersonic man in history.
