Zenith adds a bracelet to its Chronomaster El Primero A384 Revival
The Zenith Chronomaster El Primero A384 Revival was introduced in 2019 as part of the celebration of the 50th anniversary of the El Primero movement. It is a near perfect reproduction of the original A384 of 1969, right down to the 37mm diameter of its hexagonal case. In fact it would be hard to distinguish this from its source of inspiration, were it not for the sapphire crystals (front & back) and the use of SuperLuminova on dial and hands!
In its original 2019 form the Zenith Chronomaster El Primero A384 was presented on an alligator strap. For 2020 however Zenith ups the ante with the release of a bracelet option. And not just any bracelet - rather the watchmaker from Le Locle takes retro to new heights with a modern reproduction of the iconic Gay Frères 'ladder' bracelet that was used on the original A384. With the large open spaces between the center links it's not hard to see where the 'ladder' nickname originated. It's a distinct look that perfectly matches the unusual six-sided shape of the A384 case; a bold choice that further amplifies the funky vintage vibes.
The Zenith Chronomaster El Primero A384 Revival on Ladder Bracelet (03.A384.400/21.M384) is available for pre-order in our eBoutique.
