NEW: Zenith Chronomaster Original

Zenith’s perennially popular Chronomaster has now taken another form, with new models adorned with diamond-set lugs and dials.

They were launched following the brand’s 2020 female-oriented campaign Zenith called “DREAMHERS” that utilised a diverse range of ‘brand friends’ from the worlds of art, dance, fashion retail, skincare, and a former Miss Switzerland who is now in the medical field.

Zenith brought these ‘brand friends’ together to release two new ‘female-oriented’ Chronomasters – which translates to the classic watch with diamonds on dials, diamond-set lugs, and for one of them, a mother-of-pearl dial.

The familiar dial comes in two variants. One is mother-of-pearl with various shades of gray and blue, and the other new model has a silvered dial and three shades of taupe for its three sunken sub dials.

Outside of these, the watch is your classic modern Chronomaster, with an outer 1/100-seconds counter instead of a tachymeter. Powering it is the automatic El Primero Calibre 3600. Beating at a high frequency 36,600 VPH with the Zenith 1/10th of a second chronograph function, it has a power reserve of 60 hours.

The cases are 38mm and both in stainless steel, with 56 brilliant-cut diamonds set into the lugs and nine diamonds on hour markers. Both watches come on colour-matched calfskin straps.

Although they have been targeted at women, marketing-wise, they are the same size as some of Zenith’s male-targeted models, and sized for many types of wrists. Diamond-set watches have never been a gendered thing, so if the size, diamonds and colour schemes tick your boxes, the prices are AUD 17,2000 for the Ref 16.3200.3600/03.C906 (silver-toned dial) and AUD 18,700 for the Ref 16.3200.3600/02.C907 with a mother-of-pearl dial.
