The latest release of the Zenith Chronomaster Original brings two new interpretations out to play. On this brown version is a trio of counters in various shades of taupe paired against a white lacquered dial. Diamond indices and diamond-set lugs bring the sparkle with 65 VS brilliant-cut diamonds expertly set. In the same proportions as the A386, the Chronomaster Original is crafted in a 38mm steel case, while behind the scenes the El Primero 3600 automatic high-frequency chronograph movement keeps time ticking with a power reserve of 60 hours and impressive 1/10th of a second chronograph function.

Perfectly proportioned for all, the 38mm steel case is identical in shape and size to the regular Chronomaster Original, though with the added pop of light and color brought out by 56 expertly set brilliant white diamonds on the lugs. Rather than take away from the instantly recognizable Chronomaster Original silhouette with its bezel-less constructions and geometric forms, the gem-setting enhances its allure with just the right touch of audacity. Both versions of the Chronomaster Original are paired with sensual and soft calfskin leather straps in either light blue or taupe with tone-on-tone stitching, matching the colors of their dials without taking away from the splendor of the diamond-embellished case and radiant dials.

And while their exteriors are decidedly flamboyant, the new Chronomaster Original references are equipped with a serious feat of mechanical prowess: The latest generation of the renowned automatic chronograph calibre, the El Primero 3600. It beats at the same high frequency of 5Hz (36’000 VpH) as its predecessor, though its performance has been elevated to offer a 1/10th of a second chronograph function. It’s also more efficient, with an extended power reserve of 60 hours. Its design leans towards the contemporary, with a more modern and open architecture finished with sleek grey tones.
