Since 1865, Zenith built up a formidable reputation for watchmaking excellence, and in particular for its mastery of one of the most enduring styles of timepiece, the chronograph. For Watches and Wonders this year , the venerable Swiss manufacturer released new iterations of two of its most popular styles of chronograph, along with a multifaceted new platform, Master of Chronographs Since 1865, that will showcase its numerous achievements in this refined horological field. A smart tricolour dial and a new, improved movement distinguish the latest version of the much-loved Chronomaster Open. The collection was introduced in 2003, becoming the first chronograph to reveal its inner workings to the world. The dial of the new version showcases an innovative semi-transparent display, with a hesalite crystal sub-dial that also provides a view of the escape wheel. In a slimmed down 39.5mm case, it’s powered by a new version of the El Primero 3600 movement introduced in 2021 that’s even more efficient and accurate, with a 1/10th of a second chronograph function. The positives of Covid-19? Innovation and family, says watchmaker Zenith’s CEO The Chronomaster Sport made quite a splash when it was launched in 2021, scooping the Chronograph prize in the prestigious Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève 2021. It’s now available in three new versions, all driven by newest El Primero 3600 movement. One comes with an engraved ceramic bezel in grey, anthracite and blue, alongside a silver sunray-patterned dial; another comes entirely in rose gold, including the bracelet and bezel, with either a black or white dial; and the third combines the best of both, with a stainless steel case and the bracelet’s side links, and a rose gold bezel, crown, pushers and the bracelet’s centre links.

A travelling exhibition unveiled at Watches and Wonders, for example, features 15 rare and historically significant pieces from the late 19th century to the present day; while the Watch Clinic, available at select Zenith flagship boutiques, offers hands-on experience of the inner workings of a chronograph movement under the guidance of an expert watchmaker.
