We will be particularly interested when respected watchmakers, especially those such as Zenith, release new watches.
The release of the 2021 Zenith Chronomaster Sport El Primero 3600 excited many Zenith fans, but it also caused some controversy. Therefore, it is worthwhile to take a closer look at this timepiece from a technical and aesthetic point of view, and study the reasons why its issue has caused controversy.
From a technical point of view, what is the important information about the 2021 Zenith Chronomaster Sport El Primero 3600?
Since the release of the last Zenith Chronomaster in 2019, it is clear that Zenith seems to have listened to the feedback they received about the last model and tried to incorporate it into the next iteration of how to improve the product line.
The timepiece uses the El Primero 3600 movement, which is an improved version of the original movement that Zenith has been using in some form or manner since 1969. The watch is a 1/10 chronograph, which means that the movement has completed a complete rotation. Every 10 seconds. Since the chronograph is mainly used in the field of racing, one-tenth of a second is a very important time measurement, so it makes sense that the timer will be used exclusively for this type of measurement.
This watches has a silicon escapement and increases the power reserve from 55 hours to 60 hours. In addition, the movement vibrates at a speed of 36,000 VPH.
In terms of aesthetics, what is the important knowledge about the 2021 Zenith Chronomaster Sport El Primero 3600?
Aesthetically speaking, the 2021 Zenith Chronomaster Sport El Primero 3600 seems to have borrowed many styles from its predecessor, Chronomaster 2, which was released in 2019. The shape of the case and the ceramic bezel must have been inherited from this model, and it is only beneficial in this particular instance.
This timepiece has a diameter of 41 mm and a height of 13.6 mm. The highly durable case is made of stainless steel, and the watch can be water resistant up to 100 meters, which makes it one of the more waterproof models on the market today. The dial of this timepiece is also equipped with a traditional Zenith three-color dial.
It should be noted that unlike previous models, the dials of the Zenith Chronomaster Sport El Primero 3600 are more spaced, rather than overlapping. Although the older designs may be more familiar to consumers, in the end, the spacing between the dials makes them easier to read.
Why did the release of the 2021 Zenith Chronomaster Sport El Primero 3600 cause controversy?
The release of the watch rarely causes controversy, but occasionally a situation similar to the current 2021 Zenith Chronomaster Sport El Primero 3600 may occur.
In this case, the controversy stems from the fact that the watch looks like a Rolex Daytona in appearance. If you place two watches side by side, it is impossible not to notice the strong similarities between the two watches. However, this case is much more complicated than just looking at two watches.
Rolex Daytona benefited from the inspiration of the original El Primero. From 1988 to 2000, Rolex has been using El Primero movements to power its Daytona timepieces. As a result, the history of these two luxury replica watches will be intertwined forever. In addition, due to the long history between the two companies, the dispute will not have substantive results.
