(Zenith El Primero Chronograph, Model # 03.2040.400/21.C496)

 

                                                 A brief overview of Zenith brand!!!

Zenith opened its doors in 1865 under the leadership of a 22-year old named, Georges Favre-Jacot. Throughout it's long history, the Zenith watch company has won over 1500 watch industry awards and created over 50 calibers, but it wasn't until 1969 that Zenith introduced the legendary "El Primero" chronograph movement, setting the standard for mechanical excellence. It was the first chronograph caliber with integrated automatic winding and is also the fastest chronograph in existence, beating at 36000 alternations per hour (compared to the more typical 28000) making it also the most precise in the world. The Zenith El Primero is also one of the only mechanical chronographs that can measure short time intervals to 1/10 of a second.
