Classic returns, gorgeous new life-Heritage 146 watches
New vintage style: Heritage 146 watch-inspired by a model from the 1960s, now equipped with El Primero star speed movement. The new collection is presented in a retro look, with an enthusiastic brown or blue dial, a 38 mm diameter case, and a precision column wheel El Primero certified by COSC (the official Swiss Observatory testing agency). The Heritage 146 watch subtly reinterprets a very historic model, which is a unique collection that combines the essence of Zenith history: outstanding design, heavy heritage, truly rare and hard to find.
The source of inspiration for this new series-the 1960s model is equipped with a 146D movement. Its balance wheel vibrates at 18,000 vibrations per hour, which guarantees a power reserve of 38 hours. It can display the hours and minutes at 9 o’clock. Small seconds at clock position. The new Heritage 146 watch features a central seconds hand, a 30-minute counter at 3 o’clock, and a tachymeter scale. This dial design with two chronograph dials and no date window is typical of chronographs from the 1960s; this model also uses a unique scale on the minute chronograph dial: the number 3 is highlighted by an extended line , 6, and 9, and these three numbers correspond to the time point (3, 6 and 9 minutes) of the telephone timing charge in the era when the original watch was born.

The El Primero is again stunning in black and white. The thick black ceramic case, three chronographs with contrasting light and dark, and the sporty wind-perforated rubber strap-this legendary watchmaking watch, which was introduced in 1969, is now reproduced with its charming style. The brand’s signature El Primero 36,000 VpH watch is a model of high-precision machinery. One of the two watches launched this time is a black background with white, and the other is the opposite-the contrast is clear, but it is also naturally balanced, harmonious, and irresistible.
The two new El Primero 36,000 VpH watches feature a thick black ceramic case with a high-frequency column wheel chronograph movement. This movement is a professional watchmaking technology that Zenith has carefully cultivated over 150 years. Masterpiece-El Primero 400B movement with a frequency of up to 5 Hz and a display accuracy of tenths of a second is responsible for driving the central hour and minute hands, small seconds, chronograph function and date, while ensuring a power reserve of more than 50 hours. The domed sapphire crystal, round push-pieces and knurled crown make this 42mm chronograph even more powerful. The exquisite movement and its oscillating weight echo the two-tone design of the watch, and you can enjoy the charming movement through the 100-meter water-resistant sapphire crystal back.
