Zenith El Primero Chronomaster Ref.: 01.0240.410

Zenith presented the ChronoMaster at the Basel fair in 1994.
That was a good year for Zenith when during one and the same year they launched the 6 series (Elite movement), the calibre 420 hand wound El Primero (Zenith Prime) and the Zenith ChronoMaster (calibre 400 or 410)! You could choose between calibre 400 El Primero automatic chronograph with date or calibre 410 with date, day, month and moon phase. The calibre 400 or 410 were of course not new.
What was new about the Zenith ChronoMaster was the careful effort put into the design (in a classical 1950’s style), the name “ChronoMaster” (which can also be traced back to the 1950’s), and the seasoning with a chronometer certificate.
When they were introduced all Zenith ChronoMasters were COSC certified chronometers.
Although the Zenith El Primero is a born chronometer, AFAIK it was the first time that Zenith took the trouble to get COSC certificates for the El Primero.
This short introduction and overview will further focus on the most iconic model: the moon phase ChronoMaster (cal. 410), and only during the early years (1994-98).

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.
