Zenith El Primero X Phillips in Association with Bacs & Russo

Commemorating the 50th Anniversary of the Zenith El Primero Caliber, Phillips in association with Bacs & Russo presents two exclusive Zenith El Primero Limited Edition Chronograph

After the successful collaboration between Zenith and Phillips in Association with Bacs & Russo for the Zenith El Primero Ref.A386 “One-Off” timepiece which was recently presented at the Geneva Watch Auction X, both the parties have decided to continue this association by adding two more unique and exclusive timepiece to the mix.

Taking inspiration from Le Locle in 1969, the first timepiece is crafted in a 38mm yellow gold El Primero Ref.A386 case with a stunning black dial with gold sub-registers. The transparent sapphire crystal case back features the Phillips logo while showcasing the El Primero 400 automatic movement working within. Strapped to a brown calfskin leather strap, (that works perfectly well against the yellow gold case), the El Primero A386 Revival in yellow gold is limited to just 20 units.

The stainless-steel version of the collection is a tribute to the colour schemes that were characteristic of the fashionable textiles and interior designs of the 60s. The egg-shell dial with contrasting brown counters gives the watch a tropical feel. Add to that a a honey calfskin leather strap and you have yourself a winner! Additionally, the watch is powered by the El Primero 400 automatic chronograph movement that clocks in a power reserve of 50 hours.

Limited to 49 units, the El Primero A386 Revival in steel is also available in the 60s inspired straight end links ladder bracelet.
