Zenith El Primero 36,000 VPH Ticks Its Way into Our Hearts
As you’ve probably noticed by now, we don’t do a lot of reporting on subdued, unassuming looking watches. But when such watches look as classy as this latest version of the Zenith El Primero, the 36,000 VPH, we just can’t ignore them. As the name suggests, its in-house El Primero 400B movement runs at 36,000 VPH, while its 50-hour power reserve and 100-meter water resistance ensure that it’s more than ready for most adventures.
And your wrist will look mighty sharp on those adventures, thanks to the 42 mm black ceramic-coated aluminum case, Rhodium-plated hour markers and your choice of a black-on-silver or silver-on-black color scheme for the main dial and three subdials. Throw in a sturdy perforated rubber strap and you have another sweet piece of which the guys and gals at Zenith can be justifiably proud.
