Zenith debuts new chronomaster watches

In the realm of haute horlogerie, Zenith watches have long been synonymous with precision engineering, exquisite craftsmanship, and a rich heritage dating back to 1865. The unveiling of the Chronomaster Triple Calendar and Chronomaster Sport exemplifies the brand’s unwavering commitment to pushing the boundaries of watchmaking excellence.

The Chronomaster Original Triple Calendar

The Chronomaster Original Triple Calendar pays homage to the iconic El Primero, a groundbreaking movement introduced in 1969. With its meticulously crafted design and seamless incorporation of triple calendar and moon phase functionalities, this timepiece is a testament to Zenith’s legacy of innovation. Available in two distinct dial variations, it seamlessly blends vintage charm with modern sensibilities, making it a must-have for collectors and connoisseurs alike.

Setting itself apart from its peers, this debut is intricately crafted to echo the exact specifications and proportions of the legendary A386 model originating in 1969. If your heartbeat hasn’t already surged in sync with the El Primero’s rhythm, prepare for it to do so imminently.

With dimensions measuring 38mm in width, 46mm in length, and 13mm in thickness, inclusive of the raised and curved sapphire crystal, this timepiece boasts a harmonious blend of form and function. The seamless integration of the triple calendar functionality into the iconic design is nothing short of impeccable. Positioned adjacent to the 10 o’clock marker, the day indicator finds its place, while the month indicator cozies up to the 2 o’clock marker, exuding a sense of effortless elegance. True to the essence of the Chronomaster Original (and vintage El Primero) series, the date aperture gracefully occupies the space between the 4 and 5 o’clock positions.

The Chronomaster Sport

Regarding the Chronomaster Sport models, Zenith continues to elevate the sports watch genre with its latest offerings. The resplendent rose gold variant, adorned with baguette-set white diamonds, black spinels, and sapphires, epitomizes luxury and refinement. Meanwhile, the green dial version exudes a contemporary allure with its ceramic bezel and striking aesthetic elements.

The subdials showcase a color palette reminiscent of the original El Primero debut in 1969, positioned respectively around the 9, 6, and 3 o’clock markers. Adding a touch of whimsy (or perhaps polarizing taste, depending on one’s perspective), the bezel is adorned with an array of forty-eight sapphires, echoing this chromatic scheme, transitioning from a deep, lustrous blue to shades of charcoal and pale gray. Despite its moniker, the Chronomaster Sport exudes understated sophistication with its integrated bracelet and modest 41mm diameter, seamlessly blending with its opulent gold-and-sapphire ensemble.

Meanwhile, the other variants offer similar aesthetics with varied strap options. Making a return in 2024, the green Chronomaster Sport embraces the historic subdial hues against its verdant backdrop, creating a fusion of colors, including the addition of striking red accents, for a bold and dynamic aesthetic.

Everything you need to know about the Rolex Pepsi
The Rolex Pepsi is an iconic watch
Rolex Pepsi Watch

Although everyone knows Pepsi as a refreshing soda drink, Rolex and watch lovers know it as one of the most iconic wristwatches on the market. While Rolex Pepsi might sound like it, this nickname doesn’t indicate a collaboration between the luxury watch brand and the soft soda company. This nickname, given to the Rolex GMT-Master wristwatch, is simply an ode to the iconic colors of the company that highlight one of Rolex’s most identifiable pieces. With a bi-colored bezel, the Rolex Pepsi is a small pop of color for a company otherwise known for its sleek and subtle colorways. When expanding your watch collection or opting for a reliable luxury piece, there’s no doubt that the Rolex Pepsi should rank high on your list. However, before setting off for your piece of luxury, there’s plenty to know about the Rolex Pepsi. 
The history behind the Rolex “Pepsi”

Like most of Rolex’s designs, the Pepsi watch has an interesting history, making this piece an iconic must-have. First launched in 1954, the original Rolex GMT-Master (with the reference number 6542) was marketed towards pilots, as the watch’s ability to track two time zones was a handy resource for those piloting long-haul flights. At the time, the longer flight times meant that pilots could use Pepsi’s dual-time function to track the time at home and destination. Unlike today’s version, the initial version was released with a blue and red Bakelite bezel. The usage of Bakelite wasn’t for long, as this material tended to crack and was proven to be a radiation hazard. Towards the end of the production of the Rolex Pepsi 6542, the Bakelite was replaced with an aluminum bezel insert.
