Zenith El Primero Chronomaster A384 Revival Shadow 556368


Ref. No. | Item No. | 1082208

Channeling the design of an obscure Zenith black-case chronograph from the 1970s, the El Primero Chronomaster Revival Shadow is based on the A384 model, but with subtle differences that give this timepiece a unique look. With the omission of the second's track around the dial, its bead-blasted titanium tonneau-shaped case, and its dome sapphire crystal, the Revival Shadow is the only modern El Primero watch that does not have a date display.




Description

Channeling the design of an obscure Zenith black-case chronograph from the 1970s, the El Primero Chronomaster Revival Shadow is based on the A384 model, but with subtle differences that give this timepiece a unique look. With the omission of the seconds' track around the dial, its bead-blasted titanium tonneau-shaped case, and its dome sapphire crystal, the Revival Shadow is the only modern El Primero watch that does not have a date display.

The History:

If not for the foresight of Charles Vermot, there would be no modern Zenith El Primero movements today. The company was sold and made the move to manufacturing quartz-based movement timepieces. After being ordered to sell the metal materials, including the dies, machining tools & presses, Vermot chose to hide everything needed to restart production on the El Primero movement inside the factory in a loft area. When Zenith was approached by Rolex, years later, to produce a mechanical automatic chronograph movement for their Daytona model, Vermot had everything needed to begin production. Shortly after, Zenith began production again of its mechanical watches using this magnificent movement.

The Watch:

The Zenith El Primero Chronomaster Revival Shadow features a 37 mm micro-blasted titanium case with a matte black finish. Powered by the El Primero movement, the Revival Chronomaster has a 50-hour power reserve and is water-resistant to 50 meters. Functions include a chronograph, with a central chronograph hand, a 12-hour counter at the 6 o’clock position, a 30-minute counter at the 3 o’clock position, and a small seconds counter at the 9 o’clock position, as well as a tachymeter scale.

The Details:

This Zenith El Primero Chronomaster Revival Shadow A384 is in very good condition. The case, crystal, and case back all show little to no wear, as visible in the photographs. This timepiece comes with triple boxes, a quick-set-up booklet, warranty card, cardholder, USB thumb drive, serial hangtag, and cleaning cloth, as well as the original Zenith black rubber strap with Zenith micro-blasted titanium pin buckle.
