Hodinkee and ZENITH are joining forces once again on a new iteration of the legendary ZENITH El Primero.
Being one of the most influential and credible luxury timepiece sources, Hodinkee continues its rise with exclusive collaborations that incorporate iconic models from leading watchmakers. Exploring the beauty and technology behind the history of wristwatches, Hodinkee is proud to work with Zenith on its newest limited-edition release. Hodinkee x Zenith is excited to showcase the launch of the Chronomaster Original Limited Edition For Hodinkee, featuring a special 300-piece collection exclusively available through the Hodinkee Shop as well as Zenith’s online boutique. The new Chronomaster variation presents a configuration similar to the original 1960s model, modernized just enough with state-of-the-art design and movement aspects.
The new Chronomaster Original Limited Edition For Hodinkee shapes itself in a robust 38mm case design crafted from stainless steel, with an impressive 50-meter water resistance solidifying itself as a true everyday luxury watch. A salmon opaline dial reinterprets the early styling of Zenith while introducing three unique shades of grey within its chronograph sub-dial layout. Using precious metals to signify the special occasion, the hour markers and hands are made using Rhodium that are also coated with SuperLuminova SLN C1. Supplying power to the Chronomaster Original Limited Edition For Hodinkee is Zenith’s famous El Primero 3600 movement, which is responsible for driving its hours, minutes, small seconds, and central chronograph functions. A sapphire backcase allows for a perfect view of the watch’s complex mechanism in action, with a new star shape oscillating weight acting as the centerpiece. The outer portion of its backcase includes commemorative engravings that symbolize the successful ongoing relationship between Zenith and Hodinkee. Each of the limited 300-watches come fit on a stainless-steel Chronomaster Original stainless-steel bracelet with a polished center link design. The all-new Zenith Chronomaster Original Limited Edition For Hodinkee includes special packaging and is currently available through each brand for $9,500.
