Hands-On with the Zenith El Primero A386 Revival

Post by Racer-X » April 2nd 2019, 8:08pm

"Zenith kicked off the 50th anniversary of the seminal El Primero in January by rolling out a box set that pays tribute to the past, present and future of the chronograph movement.

At Baselworld 2019 the commemorative editions continued with the El Primero A386 Revival, three remakes of the very first El Primero-equipped watch, in white, rose and yellow gold. Specifically the watches are remakes of the A386 “Mark I”, and faithful in such detail that will please fans of the original.

The watch case is a near exact copy of the original A386 case, with the same profile, details and 38mm diameter, except for the addition of an open case back and the Zenith star on the crown (instead of the older, four pointed Zenith logo that resembles the NATO emblem). And it also has a domed sapphire crystal, replacing the acrylic on the original, which is a typical upgrade in today’s remakes."
