However, this indicates that the normal movement of attractiveness is introduced earlier this year. However, this slightly more and more, more modern, does not mean that replacement is replaced by El Primero. In fact, the classic 38mm, slightly tip-sine Boster is back, with more modern mechanics, but the design is not so retro inspiration. This is the successor of Zenith Chronomaster original, improved 38mm El Primero and A386 watches.

Enlightenment by A386
The name of “A386” will definitely produce resonance in the hearts of the old-fashioned look, because one of the most symbolic models of Le Locle. It is indeed the most standardized model launched in the 1969 trilog, reveals the new development and innovation of the three watches created by fake Zenith, and El Primero Caliber is known to be the highest automatic time code table. One. This TRILOGY includes a384, tonnage panda dial model, A385, with the same case, but has the original gradient brown dial (may be its first) and A386, this is the most classic style of three models, with a circle The case, but first displays the signature of the Signs three-color counter, which has become Zenith flag.

This specific watch, A386 is not only highly tuned and sought after, but it has also been stimulated from Zenith for many years. For a long time, the brand in its portfolio can be regarded as a tribute to this vintage model, classic 38mm chronomaster with silver dial, tricolor counter, lower case and caliber El Primero 400, closest you can Get it from the original 1969 motion. However, this year, this year, Zenith stopped this model, leaving space only for the space for Chronicaster Sport and more modern El Primero concept. But it is just a few months, because Zenith’s classic chronograph, now known as Chronomaster original, here is filled with blank.

New Zenith Chronomaster original
This new 2021 Zenith Chronomaster original is to pay tribute to the A386. In fact, visually speaking, it is even closer to the original model rather than the top 38 mm. However, this is not Zenith to contribute to this watch. In fact, in 2019, in order to celebrate the 50th anniversary of El Primero, the brand released a variety of “revival” version according to A386, such as rare steel model, a TRILOGY’s gold watch and manufacturing version with three blue dialing. Everyone is 1: 1 reset, equipped with a classic caliber 400, which means that items can be collected. Today, orthodox original will be the same proportion and design as the revival model, but greatly update its mechanics, coincidentally change its display. But the spirit of A386 is still alive.

The original design of Zenith Chronomaster is directly modeled. After A386, its circular center housing, its sharp striped lug, its twiller architecture, classic pump type pump, raised and dome blue gem crystal, final It is a mixed radial brushed surface and polished tone. It now only one diameter option is the most needed that they, 38 mm, just like historical Best quality fake watches. With its thin shell belt – mostly highly height of the crystal and capsule absorption – and its compact size, the new Chronomaster original is only a site. It exists, comfortable, must be elegant, and feels the same as it.

For this new launch, Zenith has launched a total of 5 references, including stainless steel selection, as shown here, and 18K rose gold. This situation is well implemented, as you can imagine from the watch made from Zenith, and have a sapphire crystal front and bucket. The water resistance is 50 meters, enough to meet most of the conditions, this model is more casual than the real movement.

The dial and its display are definitely the optimal evolution of these watches. In order to distinguish these new models with a limited revival watch, Zenith replaces the old caliber to the same movement found in the Chronicaster motion, and has a considerable impact on the display itself. However, for dial-style, don’t worry, it still retains the unique elements of A386, including the application of the noodle mark, white hand with bright and black, trapezoidal date window at 4:30 or double.

Despite this, the change is printed inside these scales and sub-dials. The motion is provided by 5Hz, which is fully utilized, and the normal original has a second display of 1/10, where the central hand is made once every 10 seconds. If the brand “surrounded around the black disk of the A386, the working time using 1/100 time division system has been used, and the new goal is found in Chronicaster, one of the 1/10 second counting time (… ), A total of 100 measurable time units. Replace the time scale with dialing outer circumference, the second count scale 1/10 occupies its position, allowing measuring and reading in the precise level in the precise part of the second time “Other evolution involve the indications found in the sub-dial. In addition to the 9 o’clock small stopwatch, orthodox original also has a 60-second counter at 3 o’clock, 6 o’clock counter 60 minutes.

As for the version in the new subset, of course, Zenith provides a classic silver dial model with tricolor (blue, anthracite and gray) sub-dial. It with a red central second needle match, hand and white super luminova. This dial is still stainless steel or 18K rose gold. Second, this series of new is a matte black dial with reversal panda style, because the external flange and subcare are silver positioning. It is only suitable for stainless steel, which is also divided with its beige super bulb insert and white-drawn central hand.

The same new, and replaced the open “trapezoid” design in the 1960s, Zenith provided a rugged chain on stainless steel bracelet, stirred brushing and polishing surface, chamfer on the side of the link. The latter is closed through a bipolar buckle. In addition, the Gold Edition and 2 steel models can be ordered on the Calfskin belt, so that the triple fold buckle shown will be displayed.

Mechanics of the 21st century
The most striking update of this new Zenith Chronomaster is not a look, but the scale inside the case. As mentioned above, this watch share its sport with athletes and larger sports watches, which means the internal caliber Islands El Primero 3600. Still uses the same foundation of historic, it has been thoroughly upgraded and updated, Match modern standards. Take 36,000 vibration / hour adjustment, it can exactly display 1/10 seconds, but it is more effective because the power reserves have been increased to 60 hours. It retains its column and horizontal coupling architecture.

This movement is more modern in design and decoration through sapphire cases. Cleaner, more distinctive and more technical appearance, the bridge is also more open, just like the oscillation weight of the five-pointed star logo. The column wheel is picked up, and the bridge is decorated with a radial brushed pattern.
