VIDEO: Zenith doubles down on the Chronomaster Sport lineTime+Tide
Last year, Zenith’s Head of Product, Romain Marietta admitted he was “shocked” by the runaway success of the Chronomaster Sport. “We knew it would be big, but not this big,” he told us. Frankly, at Time+Tide we were less surprised by the wave of excitement engulfing this ceramic-bezelled beauty. After all, Zenith had effectively created the ultimate everyday sports watch with almost perfect proportions. The colour sub-dials ensure it’s an extremely distinctive chronograph, but it’s also astonishingly well finished with many of its components multi-faceted for extra visual pizzaz. The goods news? Now Zenith are doubling down on the Chronomaster Sport line as Zach and Ricardo explore in this video
The Chronomaster Sport lineup has introduced some bold new variations that are bound to spike interest. The Boutique Edition features a super-cool tricoloured ceramic bezel with the colours aligning to the grey, anthracite, and blue subdials by position. These colours become defined against the silver sunray dial, and the effect is subtle but alluring.
If you want a bit more razzle-dazzle, Zenith have also introduced a two-tone timepiece. Counterpointing the silver sun-ray dial, rose gold glints off the handset, indices, bezel, crown, pushers and the bracelet’s polished centre links. Put these details together and it delivers a head-turning look.
Last but certainly not least, Zenith have really sexed up the offering with a version that comes in solid rose-gold. Whether you choose the black lacquered or matte white dial, it packs a high-impact punch. The black dial in particular makes the different hues of those tri-coloured sub-dials really stand out.
Specs for the new models are largely the same as the initial steel releases: 41mm case, El Primero 3600 movement that measures blazing 1/10 second increments, a 60-hour power reserve, and those divine grey, anthracite, and blue subdials. Rest assured, the Chronomaster Sport’s hype train isn’t slowing down any time soon.
