CHRONOMASTER SPORT GOLD
A TIME FOR EXCELLENCE
The manufacture from Le Locle completes its collection of contemporary chronographs with a versatile model that’s still ever-so precise. More than ever, performance and refinement are but one!
The stylistic codes of sports moved forward in leaps and bounds a long time ago. The choice of materials and the use of state-of-the-art techniques have expanded the realm of possibilities. Nowadays, even during effort, elegance is a must! At Zenith, chronometry and sporty-chic style are somewhat atavistic. The new Chronomaster Sport Gold as such focuses exceptional mechanical know-how on historic adornments. We discover the traditional three counters boasting different colors on its immaculate white-lacquered dial. The hour and minute hands hover over a minute tracker combining indexes. The presence of Super-LumiNova® ensures optimal readability under any conditions of light. This harmonious composition is staged in a 41 mm-diameter rose gold case topped with a ceramic bezel decorated with a graduated scale and equipped with piston-style pushers.
The El Primero 3600, nestling in the case, provides the energy required for the perfectly-accurate display of the time data, of the date set at 4:30 and of the 1/10th of a second time measurement. This selfwinding movement embraces the star-logoed brand’s latest innovations. It beats at a frequency of 5 Hz and delivers a power reserve of 60 hours. The existence of a stop-seconds device ensures time is always set precisely.
To boost the refined look of this reference even more, it is accompanied by a black calfskin strap attached by a folding clasp crafted in the same noble material as the case.
