Zenith’s El Primero Original 1969 features the brand’s legendary in-house El Primero hi-beat movement. If you’re in the market for a new, not-astronomically-priced chronograph with an in-house movement, you would be hard pressed to find many options, particularly under 42 mm. TAG Heuer could have helped that, but the cancellation of their CH80 movement nixed those plans. The Zenith El Primero Original 1969 replica watch, contrary to its name, is a relatively new piece from Zenith, albeit one that promises to remain authentic to an original design with which Zenith debuted its remarkable chronograph movement family.
For this review, we compare not one, but two brand new Zenith El Primero Chronographs. A 42 mm El Primero 36,000 VPH and a 38 mm Zenith El Primero 36,000 VPH Original 1969. The latter is listed on Zenith’s website as a ladies’ model, although, we know that some men prefer the smaller models and it is not even a point worth arguing about.
