Zenith’s New and Improved Chronomaster

Post by koimaster » June 10th 2021, 11:29pm

Compared to a normal chronograph, operating the newly revised Zenith Chronomaster Sport’s 1/10th-second stopwatch function is a thrill. That central hand moves multiple times faster than your average chronograph. The sheer speed of that hand is simply more exciting to behold, but it also suggests that whatever is being timed could be an exceptionally close race.

The earliest sub-seconds chronograph appears to be Frenchman Louis Moinet’s 1816 creation which measured down to 1/60th of a second (for astronomical uses). Amazingly, it was nearly a century later that Heuer topped that with a chronograph that could measure 1/100th of a second. But all of this mechanical prowess was afforded the roominess of pocket watch cases. Zenith would go on to be one of the most innovative companies working in the relatively tiny wrist-watch chronograph space, with the El Primero being an enormous leap forward.

With the lilt of Irish laughter

Every day and in every way

Now forever and ever after."
