History of Zenith El Primero A386
Although since 1940, automatic exercise is increasingly popular, but it has not been successfully manufactured when developing a self-winding timing code table. In 1962, Zenith took on the task. However, innovative caliber is to meet more specifications. It must be able to measure one tenth of seconds to become the most accurate automatic timeline table. To this end, the frequency of balance must be 5 Hz, which leads to other difficulties. Despite this, Zenith successfully created such a movement, since then, efforts to put the name of El Primero – the first. Zenith El Primero A386 became the first watch with this special sport.

These three versions have three different dials. The white watch dish is the truest because it shows the counter in the shadow of gray and blue. There is also a black internal scale around the dial, and the dial is divided into 100 time units. Similarly, the second dimensional white is in a quarter of the time to be read in a second level. To this end, the sky has determined the A386 blade timeline table and includes a straight red hand.
