For a long time, closely linking watch names and professional skills with the antique car industry has been a long tradition of watchmaking in Zenith, and has been deeply rooted in Zenith’s DNA. In 2016, with the help of many partners, Zenith met with thousands of antique car fans in more than 50 events. These enthusiasts seeking excitement or adventure love leathers with years of luster, excellent power performance and the elegant curves of legendary cars. The El Primero 36’000 VpH Classic Car watch pays tribute to the world of glorious antique cars, embodying the precision, reliability and durability of timeless and elegant flowing lines.
The El Primero 36’000 VpH Classic Car watch has a matte stainless steel case with a diameter of 42 mm, a recessed crown, and two round buttons.
The carbon grey dial presents a “caliber” -like surface modification, and three chronograph dials reproduce classic colors, using light gray, blue, and carbon black to jointly create a powerful and elegant and unique look.
There are tachymeter scales around the dial, and the delicate red seconds hand with luminous hour markers and faceted hands bring the finishing touch to the iconic display.
The El Primero 36’000 VpH Classic Car watch is equipped with the legendary Zenith El Primero chronograph movement. It is a symbol of cutting-edge machinery and craftsmanship.
Beneath the case, a precise and powerful drive squeaks: the El Primero 400B self-winding chronograph movement vibrates at an amazing speed of 36,000 times per hour, making it accurate to 1 / 10th of a second. The integrated column wheel mechanical structure is from the legendary movement series launched by Zenith in 1969. It is the most accurate mass-produced chronograph movement in the world. It consists of 326 parts and is decorated with ‘Geneva Ripple’ ( (Côtes de Genève) rotor with a central hour and minute display, small seconds, chronograph function and date display, with a power reserve of more than 50 hours.
Water-resistant to 100 meters, the El Primero 36’000 VpH Classic Car watch features a brown perforated calfskin strap with rubber lining and three discounts in stainless steel, elegantly matching the gentleman’s wrist.
