Zenith Vintage 69 Chronograph Automatic

        Founded in 1865, by a young enthusiast watchmaker, Georges Favre-Jacot in a place known as the cradle of today Haute Horology, Le Locle, Switzerland Zenith is one of the most prestigious watch-making brands in the world, known as, just like its name suggests, the highest edge of watch-making mastery and horological artisanship.

        Through the years, the brand created countless timepieces defined by mechanical sophistication and sheer aesthetical beauty, it designed over 50 distinct mechanical movements, characterized by immaculate precision and high-end impeccable finish, and among them, maybe the best chronograph movement ever built the legendary El Primero Caliber.


        Currently owned by the LVMH group Zenith, never ceased to bring to life outstanding timepieces, highly appreciated by watch-connoisseurs worldwide, and the new Zenith New Vintage 69 watch makes no exception.

        Characterized by masculine powerful design, which masterfully intertwines contemporary and vintage design touches, the remarkable Zenith New Vintage 69 watch is animated by the sophisticated El Primero 469 caliber, the upgraded version of the 1969 emblematic El Primero movement known as the first chronograph movement in the history of watch-making with an amazing balance frequency of 36,000 vibrations per hour.


        This remarkable new addition to the brand’s iconic Vintage 69 Collection ensures an accuracy of 1/10th of a second precision, transforming this beautiful timepiece in a coveted collectable item, defined by the upmost reliability and precision. This outstanding movement incorporates 278, wonderfully finished parts, and a connoisseur’s eye can enjoy the delicate dance of the Cotes-de-Genève embellished oscillating weight of the timepiece through a transparent sapphire crystal case back.

        The initial design of the case was rethought in order to enhance the powerful sporty appeal of the watch; moreover, it makes a nice contrast against the shiny plain black dial shielded by a both sides anti-glare coated sapphire crystal. The watch’s dial design ingeniously plays with contrasting colors, black, white and red; it features black bead-blasted hour hands and hand-applied hour-markers, treated with luminescent coating for optimal time-legibility in poor light conditions. The dial features a small second’s sub-dial located at 9 o’clock position, 12-hour chronograph counter located at 6 o’clock, and 30-minutes counter, respectively located at 3 o’clock. Moreover, in a small aperture at 4:30, the watch displays the date function; also, the watch is fitted with a tachometric scale located on the dial’s rim that enables the watch’s owner to track accurately the speed of travel.

        A sophisticated timepiece, the superb Zenith New Vintage 69 Watch, comes coupled with a stylish alligator leather strap fitted with stainless steel pin buckle, and will surely become a coveted collectable item which embodies the eloquent expression of horological achievement and ever-lasting excellence.
