Wonderful watch fantastic brand Today. In 1969, at a press conference held on January the 10th, Zenith announced the imminent launch of the first fully integrated, high-frequency, automatic chronograph movement. Codenamed 3019 PHC, this movement was renamed “El Primero”, which means “the first” in Spanish.

 

The first appearances of the El Primero through a sapphire case-back happened in the 1990s with the top-of-the-range ChronoMaster line, which displayed its flagship movement through the transparent back.

 

The ChronoMaster served to reposition the El Primero. The 1997 advertisement dedicated to it shows the hand of a man resting on the belly of an expectant mother, with these words: "When worn, this Zenith watch will work for a lifetime - or even longer", so suggesting that a Zenith watch can be passed on across generations thanks to its quality.
