Zenith introduces a new interpretation of the historical Chronomaster A384, The Chronomaster Revival Safari. Keeping the geometry and proportions of the A384, this new watch offers a different feel and look to its case with microblasted titanium that’s lighter yet harder than traditional steel. The case of the timepiece, including the star-emblazoned crown and pump-style pushers, is fashioned in an intriguingly muted finish that’s entirely microblasted to bring out the dark distinctions of titanium by absorbing light rather than reflecting it.
Inspired by the vivid colors and textures found on wild terrains, the Chronomaster Revival Safari features deep-olive green tones found on its dial and rubber codura-effect strap which is fixed to a matte microblasted titanium pin buckle. The dial is a deep matte green with contrasting black registers and tachymeter scale, with a touch of vintage inspiration with its warm beige-colored SuperLumiNova on the applied baton markers and hands. The white on green date wheel is concealed with the rest of the dial; legible when you need it but never distracting.
This retro-inspired watch is powered by the iconic El Primero automatic high-frequency chronograph calibre, visible through the display back. In production since 1969 and gradually evolved throughout the years, this is the closest interpretation of the original version of the seminal chronograph movement.
The Chronomaster Revival Safari retails for $9,000.00 USD and is available for purchase at Zenith boutiques and via Zenith’s online boutique.
