Zenith upgraded its legendary chronograph movement El Primero, which celebrates its 50th anniversary this year. The new Caliber El Primero 3600 is offered in the new Chronomaster 2 model. Zenith, who is not content with keeping its connection with its roots but always looking to the future, has redeveloped the most precise automatic chronograph movement. A new, futuristic version that follows the footsteps of its predecessor in terms of architecture. The optimized new caliber, called the El Primero 3600, incorporates basic features such as a 1/10 second chronograph function and lateral clutch, an integrated architecture including a ball-bearing mounted rotor.
