The latest Chronomaster Original Triple Calendar appears sharper than before with its El Primero 3610 automatic 5HZ frequency calibre with a triple calendar and moonphase, boasting a power reserve of about 60 hours. While the El Primero with the triple calendar and moonphase functions was created in the 1970s, the brand continued with its chronograph version as it gained immense success back then.

Inspired by the A386 from 1969, the Chronomaster Original Triple Calendar measures 38mm and comes with a bezel-less case and raised and domed sapphire crystal. It is crafted in stainless steel and is revealed in three different dial colours - a silver opaline dial with black-toned counters (Ref. 03.3400.3610/38.C911); a slate-grey-toned opaline with silver-toned counters (Ref. 03.3400.3610/38.M3200) which takes its inspiration from the small series of El Primero triple calendar prototypes from 1970; and an olive green-toned sunray-patterned dial with silver-toned counters (Ref. 03.3400.3610/40.C912), an exclusive Boutique Edition piece. 

Their dial features a small seconds at 9 o'clock, a 60-minute counter at 6 o'clock, inside which resides the moonphase indication, and a 60-second counter at 3 o'clock. There are days of the week, and months, and date displays located at 10 o’clock, 2 o’clock, and 4:30, alongside rose gold-tone applied baton hour markers and hands. 

The timepieces come with a stainless steel bracelet with folding clasp and additionally, are offered with matching calfskin leather straps. The metal bracelet pieces are priced at Rs. 12,89,000 (approx.), while the strap ones are priced at Rs. 12,41,000 (approx.)
