Created for the modern and contemporary women, the latest additions to the Chronomaster Original collection features two models in diamonds with either a multicoloured mother-of-pearl dial or taupe tri-colour dial.
During the first “Meet the Dreamhers” event, where guests were invited to discover a group of accomplished and outspoken women known as the Zenith Dreamhers, Zenith unveiled a pair of Chronomaster Original models in diamonds with either a multicoloured mother-of-pearl dial or taupe tri-colour dial. Whether for women seeking a lavish chronograph or men who appreciate its flamboyance, the new Chronomaster Original adorned with precious stones and a playfully chic use of the iconic tri-colour dial are definite showstoppers.
A New Interpretation of The Chronomaster Original
The definitive Chronomaster Original in a tri-colour dial with chronograph counters in the classic shades of grey and blue is replaced by a similar but brighter palette entirely furnished in mother-of-pearl. The dial is presented in no less than four different colours: a white mother-of-pearl for the dial, two shades of blue for the chronograph counters, and a grey mother-of-pearl for the constant seconds. The second model plays with three tones of taupe-brown in the signature tri-colour layout against a satin-white dial. Making each hour more precious, both dials are set with 9 diamonds in place of the hour markers.
Perfectly proportioned for both men and women, the 38mm steel case is identical in shape and size to the regular Chronomaster Original, though with the added pop of light and colour brought out by 56 expertly set brilliant white diamonds on the lugs. In keeping the distinguishable Chronomaster Original silhouette with its bezel-less constructions and geometric forms, the gem-setting on the new models enhances its allure with just the right touch of audacity. Both versions of the Zenith Chronomaster Original are paired with sensual and soft calfskin leather straps in either light blue or taupe with tone-on-tone stitching, harmoniously matching the colours of their dials without taking away the splendour of the diamond-embellished case and radiant dials.
While their exteriors are decidedly flamboyant, the new Chronomaster Original references are equipped with a serious feat of mechanical prowess. The latest generation of the renowned automatic chronograph calibre, the El Primero 3600 beats at the same high frequency of 5Hz (36’000 VpH) as its predecessor, though its performance has been elevated to offer a 1/10th of a second chronograph function. The models also prove more efficient with its 60 hours power reserve. Its design leans towards the contemporary, with a more modern and open architecture finished with sleek grey tones.
Zenith Meet the Dreamhers Campaign
Established in 2020, Zenith Dreamhers is far more than a campaign as it is a platform that gives visionary, independent and inspirational women to share their voices and passion with likeminded women who are also reaching their stars against all odds.
Selected members of the press were invited to spend the evening with some of the Dreamhers in a private villa in Madrid and had the opportunity to participate live at a panel discussion about women in the 21st century and the need for change towards more inclusiveness and equal rights. With the Dreamhers coming from all walks of life, among the Zenith Dreamhers in attendance to the inaugural physical event were contemporary artist Teresa Juevas, chef Amandine Chaignot, professional ballerina Precious Adams, fashion retail pioneer Ghizlan Guenez, extreme e racer Christine Giampaoli Zonca, skincare entrepreneur Laura Noltemeyer and former Miss Switzerland and medical professional Laetitia Guarino.
The Meet the Dreamhers event also allowed guests to get hands-on with new accessories for the Defy Midnight, Zenith’s first-ever collection dedicated entirely to women. One of its most adored features is its quick strap-change mechanism, allowing the wearer to interchangeably swap between the steel bracelet and rubber or fabric straps effortlessly. Zenith also introduced their new 100% vegan leather straps in khaki and beige colours.
