Zenith El Primero Chronomaster Ref.: 01.0240.410
Zenith presented the ChronoMaster at the Basel fair in 1994.
On completion of the take-over in 2002 a few Zenith models were discontinued (Rainbow, Zenith El Primero HW,…).
But the ChronoMaster stayed on and even multiplied in many new models and sizes.
However the design changed from a sober and classic (grand)father’s watch, to a modern baroque style with guilloche, open dials. The cases also became bigger and bigger (three different sizes were now available: 40, 42 and 43 mm).
But the stepped case style remained and until ca. 2010 among the great variety of ChronoMasters that now existed you could still find more or less the same classic ChronoMaster.
After Zenith modified the movements, resulting in the new calibres 400 Z and 410 Z, it seems there followed an increase in production during the following years. The majority of ChronoMasters now consisted of cal. 410 Z.
However after 2001/2002 the rotor numbers were not used any more and COSC certificates were no longer given by Zenith, and this also makes it difficult to estimate the numbers produced after 2002.
