Chronomaster Original Pink
The Chronomaster Original Pink is inspired by the iconic design of the ZENITH A386 collection of timepieces from the 1960s. Undoubtedly, the most visually distinctive design element within its 38 mm stainless steel case is its pink dial, representative of the pink breast cancer awareness ribbon popularized by the Susan G. Komen in the 1990s. The unique aesthetic language also includes the emblematic tri-colour chronograph registers in a light pink shade, the trapezoid date window at 04:30 and the white chronograph second hand. The black inner scale surrounding the dial of the A386, once used to calculate time spent working using a 1/100th of an hour time division system, finds a new purpose in the Chronomaster Original, with its 1/10th of a second chronograph hand making a rotation around the dial in 10 seconds, totalling 100 measurable time units.
To achieve the striking metallic colour of the Chronomaster Original Pink edition, a brass dial plate is first galvanically coated in a silver colour to provide a bright metallic base. Then, the satin sunburst brushing is delicately applied, allowing each of the dial’s different elements to reflect light differently. Finally, a layer of semi-translucent pink lacquer is carefully applied to provide a vibrant tint while allowing the metallic finish of the dial’s base to shine through.
The Chronomaster Original is equipped with one of the latest versions of the El Primero caliber, dubbed the El Primero 3600. With its high frequency of 5 Hz (36’000 VpH), the movement can precisely offer a true 1/10th of second indication, not a moment of precious time lost. Autonomy has also been rendered more efficient, with an extended power reserve of 60 hours. Visible through the sapphire display back, the new architecture features a sleek design.
