Zenith Chronomaster Revival El Primero A385 Watch

First gradient dial in watchmaking industry back in 1969 Original Revival of the 1969 Reference A385 Original 1969 case with 37 mm diameter Automatic El Primero column-wheel chronograph movement

Zenith’s A385 Chronomaster Revival Is a Stunning Piece of Watchmaking History The faithfully executed remake is based on the groundbreaking 1969 model, one of the first to feature the Zenith Chronomaster Revival El Primero A385 Replica
The recreation of vintage-inspired watches from an illustrious back catalog of designs has become an accepted, if sometimes overused, industry practice for watch brands—namely those with the right history—to create “newness.” Or maybe that should be “oldness.” Whatever. While we are all easily smitten by riffs on iconic watches, precise recreations down to the nth degree are often stymied by the need to modernize in the process, like using a more modern in-house movement or supersizing a watch to suit modern tastes for bigness. But what happens when the movement is the most famous thing about a watch?

Since 2019, Zenith has made much of the 50th anniversary of its groundbreaking El Primero movement and has produced a number of nuts-and-bolts rebuilds, redesigns, or updates of the iconic watches that first carried it. But arguably none of them are as mind-bendingly faithful to the original inspiration than the Chronomaster Revival A385, out now
The Zenith El Primero was a groundbreaking movement for watch nerds when it first surfaced in early 1969 for a number of reasons, not least being the 36,000 semi-oscillations per hour that made it significantly more accurate than most production watches of the time. More crucially, however, it was also the first automatic chronograph, the victor in a triangular horological equivalent of the space race. At least it was the first one let out of the bag, hence the name. In the other two corners, Seiko in Japan and an alliance between Heuer-Leonidas (as Tag Heuer was then called), Breitling, and Hamilton; both were pipped to the post by a Zenith press conference in Geneva in January 1969. The original A385 was one of three rather different-looking designs to first carry the El Primero, but its blocky tonneau shape and smoked brown dial was probably the most “1969” of them all.
To test the A385’s—or rather the El Primero’s—reliability, in 1970, Zenith strapped one to the undercarriage of an Air France Boeing 707 bound for New York in what was imaginatively called “Operation Sky.” Though it looked like a marketing gimmick, the test was a bona fide trial for the new watch, designed to pit it against the extremes of changes in temperature and air pressure as well as wind, water, and vibrations at high altitude. On landing in New York, the watch showed no change in performance. The El Primero went on to power not only Zenith watches, but pieces made by other brands like Tag Heuer, Dunhill, and for a time even Rolex, which used it in the Daytona for just over a decade from 1989 (albeit with some significant in-house modifications).

The modern A385 was built using the original Zenith blueprints to an exacting degree of authenticity—all the way down to the relatively diminutive 37mm cushion case—with the only differences being a domed sapphire crystal instead of the original acrylic glass and an exhibition case back to show the better to off the El Primero movement. But if anything screams its age here, it’s the brown gradient dial, another Zenith first in 1969 and a stage-setter for the 1970s that was well ahead of its time.
Even after more than 50 years of loyal services, the El Primero remains one of the most fascinating movements to be manufactured. With its column-wheel architecture, its high-frequency, and multiple small but necessary upgrades, it has managed to stand the test of time. In 2019, for its 50th-anniversary, Zenith commemorated this legendary calibre with multiple “Revival” editions of the A386 model, the most sought-after watch in the 1969 trilogy. Last year, it was time for the panda watch, the A384, to be re-edited. Now, in 2021, the brand gives the last and third model its moment of glory, with the new Zenith Chronomaster Revival A385. And today, we give a closer look at this very cool launch.
If you’re reading super-watches-fashion.com/, you probably already have some watch culture. Thus, if we mention the year 1969, it should give you an indication of what the rest of the article should be about… 1969 has been a year of innovation for the whole industry, but also for Zenith. It is the year the industry unveiled a game-changing concept, the automatic chronograph movement. Surprisingly, before the introduction of not one but three of these architectures, all chronograph movements were hand-wound. But in 1969, three manufactures will unveil their own vision of the automatic chronograph – namely Zenith with the El Primero, Seiko with the Calibre 6139 and the Chronomatic/project 99 consortium uniting Heuer-Léonidas SA, Léon Breitling SA, Hamilton-Büren and chronograph specialist Dépraz & Co with the Calibre 11.
Together with 1865 (the year the brand was created), 1969 is, without doubt, the most important year in Zenith’s history. It has seen the introduction of the world’s first automatic high-frequency chronograph, the El Primero. The column-wheel, 5Hz movement, which is still in production thanks to a fascinating human story – fully explained here – made its debut in three stainless steel models. While the A386, with its more traditional case and tri-colour dial, is the most famous of the lot, there was also the A384 with its tonneau-shaped case and panda dial – which is now available from Zenith’s Revival collection – and another, even more original watch, the A385.
The Zenith El Primero A385 is a very distinctive watch. While the two other watches in the trilogy were a bit more classic in their design, the A385 was bold. Based on the same case as the A384, meaning a 37mm cushion-shaped block of steel, it stood out thanks to its dial, with a warm colour and, something new for the industry, a dégradé smoked effect – according to Zenith, this was “the first smoked dial ever to be made in the watch industry” (something that would need to be verified…)
Mechanically, there was no difference between the watches from the trilogy, as all were using the same El Primero movement. Something to be noted about the A385; in 1970, it took part in Zenith’s “Operation Sky.” This extreme test consisted of strapping the watch to an Air France Boeing 707’s landing gear on a flight from Paris to New York to test its resistance to external aggressions such as drastic temperature fluctuations, wind force and changing air pressure. Upon landing, the watch was still functioning perfectly.
There’s no denying the actual beauty of the watches from the 1969 El Primero trilogy. All of them, with their own distinctive design, can be named “emblematic” – with a special mention for the A386, which has gained an indisputable cult status in auction rooms. Nevertheless, the A384 and A385 models are equally attractive and, possibly, even more representative of the era when the El Primero movement was launched. With the exception of its tri-colour dial, the A386 remains a rather classic watch while the two others, and even more the A385, are watches with true late-1960s styling.
Credits where credit’s due; Zenith should be applauded for the faithfulness of their Revival watches. Certainly, one could note a certain lack of imagination in the idea of recreating a past model, however, as the trend for vintage-inspired watches doesn’t tend to slow down, at least when Zenith does it, it does it right. In short, the Chronomaster Revival A385 is, just like the Zenith Chronomaster Revival A384 replica , an almost 1-to-1 reproduction of the original model – except for some minor details. Many (countless) brands have embarked on the vintage train but few can claim to still produce the same movement as the inspiration watch… And that changes everything, specifically when it comes to dimensions of the case and dial layout.
So, let’s get straight to the point, the Revival A385 is extremely loyal to its predecessor, in almost every single aspect. Starting with the case, not only the style has been reproduced but also the proportions. Compact in terms of diameter, at only 37mm like the original, it remains a watch with a relatively modern presence, with a 47mm lug-to-lug measurement. The height is also moderate for an automatic chronograph, at 12.6mm – the El Primero is fairly thin compared to its modern counterparts with vertical clutch.
The shape, since Zenith scanned an old model, is fully identical and retains the sharp angles found on the 1969 cushion-shaped case. The top surface is radially-brushed, which participates in the retro look of the watch, the sides are horizontally brushed, and on the side is a polished bevel that brings dynamism. The main specificity of the case of the A384 and A385 was the angled surface of the lugs, which are still present and polished like the original model. The right side is home for historically-accurate pushers and crown and the main update is the material used for the crystal, where modern sapphire replaces Plexiglas. Other than that, this Chronomaster Revival A385 is basically identical to an unworn 1969 model that would have been kept in a safe… yet with more precise execution. But that’s not new, since the Revival A384 uses the same case.
What changes here is the dial… a funky, bold, colourful, warm dial with outdated coolness. While the A384 played on sporty cues, with a classic panda dial highlighted by a touch of red, this A385 sports a brown smoked dial – with a strong degradé effect ranging from almost black in the periphery to a very light brown-beige in the centre. Framed by a ubiquitous tachymeter scale, it reproduces once again faithfully the design of the original model, down to the facetted and rhodium-plated hour markers and hands, the red central seconds hand, or the inscriptions with historic fonts and logo. The sub-dials, with small seconds, 30-minute and 12-hour counters, are white and so is the date window at 3 o’clock – which gives here visual consistency. The indications are filled with cream-coloured Super-LumiNova, which works well with the rest of the dial’s tones.
While also available on a light brown leather strap, it makes sense to go for the steel bracelet on this watch… Because, here also, Zenith has played on visual accuracy and has reproduced a style that was used on the A384 and A385 models, the so-called ladder steel bracelet with hollowed links, once manufactured by Gay Frères. Light and flexible, it looks and feels right in place in this context.

Under the screwed sapphire caseback – the other noticeable update compared to the historical watch – is a well-known movement, and in fact a movement that is, like the rest of the watch, almost a 1-to-1 reproduction of what once powered the A385; you name it, the El Primero calibre. With a development that started in 1962 with the idea to launch it in 1965 for the manufacture’s centenary, it finally made its entry in 1969. However, after an estimated production of 32,000 movement units, Zenith Radio Corporation (a US company owning the brand since 1971) lost confidence in mechanical watches and, betting on quartz, decided to stop the production of the El Primero, and wanted to get rid of the tooling… but thanks to Charles Vermot, the watchmaker in charge of manufacturing, tools and manufacturing plans were saved, hidden in the manufacture’s attic. And in the early 1980s, Zenith was able to resume the production of its automatic chronograph.
The Calibre El Primero 400 that powers the Chronomaster Revival A385 is the closest you can get from the original 1969 movement. If some upgrades have been implemented (better chronometry, more reliable parts where needed, better decoration and modern manufacturing techniques), it basically retains the same architecture and, a signature element, the 5Hz frequency. It is here presented with a star-shaped openwork rotor and pleasant finishing.

Replica Zenith CHRONOMASTER REVIVAL A386 MANUFACTURE EDITION Watch 03.Z386.400/60.C843
For its first Manufacture Edition, Zenith has reproduced a previously unknown prototype dial of its most iconic chronograph. The Zenith Chronomaster Revival Manufacture Edition is exclusively available on Zenith’s newly launched e-commerce platform, as well as to visitors of the Zenith Manufacture in Le Locle.

2019 was a year of commemoration for the Zenith El Primero, the world’s first automatic high-frequency chronograph movement, which marked its 50th anniversary last year. While the anniversary is over, Zenith continues to celebrate the venerable calibre with a number of new and exclusive watches. For its first Manufacture Edition, Zenith has reproduced a previously unknown prototype dial of its most iconic chronograph. The Chronomaster Revival Manufacture Edition is exclusively available on Zenith’s newly launched e-commerce platform, as well as to visitors of the Zenith Manufacture in Le Locle.
Like a time capsule sheltered from our ever-changing world, the grenier or attic of the Zenith Manufacture is a special place indeed, with many secrets still being uncovered today. While going through the grenier or attic of the main historical Zenith Manufacture building last year during the El Primero’s 50th anniversary, an unexpected discovery was made.

There in the attic, among the countless artifacts and pristinely preserved tools that the heroic Charles Vermot had hidden away in the 1970s during the quartz crisis, a small, unassuming and unlabeled box was uncovered. In it, remarkably preserved after decades, were a number of dials: The signature El Primero tri-color dial of the A386 that became a design icon, and more remarkably, another version of the tri-color dials, using three different shades of blue. No records exist of these presumably prototype blue tri-color dials, but considering that they were kept with prototype dials of the A386 in the same configuration it was commercialized in 1969, one can assume that is was part of the original prototype dials for the A386, and that Charles Vermot himself hid them in the attic along with all the other El Primero tools. We may never know if the dial with three shades of blue was intended as an alternative to the A386’s dial or intended for a different model, but its striking beauty and intriguing history compelled the watchmakers at Zenith to finally put it into production.

To bring this prototype to life, it was only appropriate that Zenith produces it as a Revival piece. The 38mm stainless steel case with pump-style pushers is an exact reproduction of the A386 from 1969, using the blueprints of the original to preserve the proportions of the iconic chronograph. What makes this edition significant and even more unique is that the Chronomaster Revival Manufacture Edition is in fact the final version of the A386 available with the original “Revival” case. Beating within it is the same movement it would have had if it was made in 1969, the venerable El Primero high-frequency automatic chronograph with column wheel.

As a Manufacture piece, this revival edition is intended to be an exclusive piece, available uniquely to visitors of the Zenith Manufacture. Nonetheless, given the current situation, which does not allow to offer tours of the manufacture, Zenith is making the Manufacture Edition available on e-commerce, giving customers the opportunity to purchase the watch until the Manufacture reopens to the public for visits. The e-commerce site will be rolled out gradually across different markets, starting with Italy, France and Switzerland in May, followed by Germany, Spain, the United Kingdom and then in United States. The watch comes in a special packaging, mimicking a book that can be displayed on a bookshelf and bearing a blueprint of the Zenith manufacture on its cover. It will also include a comic book about Charles Vermot by renowned Swiss cartoonist Cosey, as well as a reproduction of the vintage dial found in the attic.

Zenith replica watch: Time to reach your star
Zenith exists to inspire individuals to pursue their dreams and make them come true – against all odds. Since its establishment in 1865, Zenith became the first watch manufacture in the modern sense of the term, and its watches have accompanied extraordinary figures that dreamt big and strived to achieve the impossible – from Louis Blériot’s history-making flight across the English Channel to Felix Baumgartner’s record-setting stratospheric free-fall jump.

With innovation as its guiding star, Zenith features exceptional in-house developed and manufactured movements in all its watches. From the first automatic chronograph, the El Primero, to the fastest chronograph with a 1/100th of a second precision, the El Primero 21, as well as the Inventor that reinvents the regulating organ by replacing the 30+ components with a single monolithic element, the manufacture is always pushing the boundaries of what’s possible. Zenith has been shaping the future of Swiss watchmaking since 1865, accompanying those who dare to challenge themselves and break barriers. The time to reach your star is now.


If all the colours that our eyes can perceive are to be considered as frequencies of visible light, then violet has the highest frequency of them all, beyond which is invisible ultraviolet light. It was only natural to pair this intense, energetic colour with the highest-frequency chronograph in regular production, the Zenith DEFY 21.

In past centuries, violet was coveted as the most sought-after colour dye for garments, the production of which was a closely held secret by certain civilizations such as the Phoenicians. Its rarity and compelling beauty made it the stuff of royalty. Today, violet tones portray a sense of daring, confidence and whimsy, from sports cars to bespoke tailoring. Yet in the world of watchmaking, violet remains a rarity.
A world-first in watchmaking, Zenith has treated an automatic chronograph movement in the regal, opulent tones of violet. Not just any chronograph, Zenith replica watch chose its revolutionary 1/100thof a second Zenith El Primero 21 chronograph calibre beating at an incredible frequency of 50Hz as the canvas for this visually and mechanically striking creation.

Visible through the open dial, which features three grey chronograph registers and a grey flange ring, the vibrant violet movement is accentuated by the DEFY 21’s uniquely avant-garde movement conception and design with open, angular bridges. A white-tipped central 1/100th of a second chronograph hand makes a complete revolution above the dial in one second. Besides the DEFY 21 El Primero 50th Anniversary edition, which was only available as a box-set with two other watches, the DEFY 21 Ultraviolet is the first stand-alone DEFY 21 with an open dial paired with closed chronograph counters.

Allowing the purple-treated bridges of the movement to truly stand out while providing a more striking contrast, the faceted 44mm case of the DEFY is given an entirely matte sandblasted finish, bringing out the darker metallic nuances of titanium. Complementing the tones of the open movement, which can shift from warm violet to cool purple tones, the black rubber strap features a violet insert that mimics the look of woven textile.

Replica Zenith DEFY EL PRIMERO 21 ULTRAVIOLET Watch 97.9001.9004/80.R922


Black & white is far more than just a choice of tones. It’s an entire design language that echoes towering urban landscapes and edgy art and fashion movements. While the DEFY 21 and DEFY Classic have gone through numerous iterations that incorporate exotic materials and vibrant colors, the Zenith Boutique-exclusive Black & White editions take on a drastically different approach with an achromatic palette.

These on-trend reinterpretations of the two most emblematic models in the DEFY collection emphasize their singularly bold architecture through heavily contrasting black and white tones put forth in an enticing manner, providing a decidedly contemporary yet versatile choice for the style-conscious watch aficionado of today.

Featuring a matte microblasted black ceramic case in 44mm for the DEFY 21 and 41mm for the ZENITH DEFY Classic, the muted finish enhances the sleek lines of the faceted case as it absorbs light rather than reflect it. The two emblematic DEFY pieces are paired with white ceramic bezels for a sharp contrast, giving way to the three dimensional dials of both models.

On the DEFY 21, a white 1/100th of a second scale and 30-minute chronograph counter appear to seemingly float above the blackened movement. On the DEFY Classic, the ultra-modern open dial with a central star motif is given a similar treatment in this Boutique-exclusive edition, with a white flange ring and a blackened symmetrical open dial. As the finishing touch, a black and white cordura-effect rubber strap completes the theme. For a more understated look, both editions of the DEFY Black & White also come with a second strap in textured black rubber. The DEFY 21 Black & White and DEFY Classic Black & White are available exclusively at Zenith Boutiques and e-shop.

Zenith Pilot Type 20 Blueprint 03.2435.679/51.I012 Replica Watch

When the team at the Zenith Manufacture came across a blueprint of its historical building, it immediately reminded them of the blueprints they had seen of earliest Aeronefs, the earliest aircrafts conceived by the pioneers of flight, most notably Louis Blériot and his Type XI aircraft that he flew across the English Channel. As the preeminent watchmaker that accompanied the earliest aviators, Zenith sought to highlight their ingenuity in a surprising way with the Zenith Pilot Type 20 Blueprint replica.

There’s something about blueprints that sparks intrigue and curiosity. It’s what translates the wildest dreams into feasible, tangible objects. Typical of production and engineering plans in the mid-19th and early 20th centuries, each element was carefully calculated and precisely drawn as the basis of a project. Now a relic from a bygone era, the blueprint continues to fascinate, and is synonymous with thorough planning and ingenious vision.

When looking at a watch’s dial, one tends to pay attention to the colors, the finish, the shape of the hands and markers, the typography of the numerals, without giving much thought the precise calculations and design considerations that go into making it. And yet, each Zenith dial is meticulously thought out and developed, where no detail is left to chance. The designers at the Manufacture sought to highlight this “unseen” aspect of the dial, by incorporating its production plans directly onto it. Unexpected and captivating, the dial is created in two parts: a matte blue base with all technical plans and notes used by the dial-maker, and above it a sapphire crystal and a sapphire crystal layer with the usual markers and logo. This creates a captivatingly deep visual effect, where the various markings cast a slight shadow on the blue base and give the impression that they’re hovering above the blueprint dial.

Limited to 250 pieces, the Zenith Pilot Type 20 Blueprint remains true to the legacy of Zenith’s ubiquitous Pilot watch. The oversized steel case, finished with a mix of polished and satin-brushed surfaces, features the signature oversized “onion” shaped crown that allows the time to be adjusted even while wearing flight gloves. The side of the case features a screwed plaque bearing the unique limited edition number of the watch. Powering this wearable flight instrument is the Elite manufacture automatic movement, providing a minimum autonomy of 50 hours. In a nod to the earliest years of aviation, the blue calfskin leather strap recalls the classic shearling leather flight jacket, with rivets and a titanium pin buckle as well as a distinctive tab one would find on a vintage pilot’s helmet.
Zenith reveals the unseen schematics of its dials in a special rendition of the Pilot Type 20, aptly named the “Blueprint”.


Zenith replica watch returns to the era the Zenith El Primero chronograph calibre was born in, with a reimagined edition of the legendary A384 from 1969 in a striking gradient blue dial, with striking red and white accents. A limited edition of 150 pieces exclusively available in North America. Replica Zenith Chronomaster Revival Liberty Watch 03.US384.400/57.C823

By all accounts, the 1960s was one of the most remarkable and pivotal decades in modern history, forever changing the world around us. It was a decade of challenging the norms and setting new social standards. The very fabric of society was woven anew, where taboos were meant to be broken and people could freely live as they saw fit. Fashion and design were evolving to accommodate individual freedom and expression. Clothes became more colorful and flattering, cars became bolder and louder, and music became more eclectic and experimental. And while mankind took its first steps on the moon, another sort of revolution was taking place across the Atlantic in the quaint mountainside town of Le Locle in Switzerland. After years of research, 1969 welcomed the birth of the Zenith El Primero calibre, the world’s first high-frequency automatic chronograph movement.

Zenith is celebrating the pioneering spirit of this era, as impactful on contemporary culture as it was for its own history and the entire watchmaking sector, with this special Chronomaster Revival watch, a limited edition of 150 pieces available exclusively in North America. Draped in blue, red and white tones, it reimagines what could have been an El Primero reference from 50 years ago, based on the seminal A384 from 1969.

A fresh take on an iconic chronograph from the sixties, the Chronomaster Revival Liberty is made in a 37mm angular tonneau stainless steel case that isn’t just historically inspired but an actual reproduction of the A384’s case from 1969 – the first watch to be equipped with the El Primero movement. Using the original blueprints and production plans from over 50 years ago, the case has been faithfully brought back to life in exacting details, save for the domed sapphire crystal and display case back, revealing the El Primero automatic high-frequency chronograph calibre with a power reserve of 50 hours.

Blue dial Zenith El Primero watches have always been coveted favorites among chronograph collectors. In the Chronomaster Revival Liberty, Zenith adds a new touch to this popular color, but which could just as well have been made back in 1969. The matte blue dial has a vignetting gradient effect, paired with white chronograph counters for a striking contrast. An outstanding detail in this edition, the central chronograph second hand is painted with red and white stripes and further accentuates the tachymeter scale found on the dial. Fitting the theme, the numerals on the white date wheel are painted in red. To complete the look, the leather and cordura-effect rubber strap is finished in blue with a single red stitch on each side. The Chronomaster Revival Liberty is a limited edition of 150 pieces and is available exclusively in the USA and Canada and on Zenith’s American online boutique.

The new Replica Zenith Ginza Boutique is also the first to host Zenith Icons, a new concept offering the possibility of acquiring a curated selection of iconic and highly sought-after vintage Zenith watches sourced, restored and certified by the Manufacture and sold exclusively at Zenith’s boutiques. Emblematic chronographs can be expected, with all details of each watch’s provenance thoroughly researched and documented by the Manufacture’s Heritage department.

In 2019, Zenith launched a watch that one could say was nearly 50 years in the making, the Zenith Chronomaster  A384 “Lupin The Third”, the first watch ever made to be inspired by a Japanese anime series. After the overwhelming success of the first series and the fact of a second Zenith watch appearance in the anime series Lupin The Third, Zenith is proud to unveil the Zenith Chronomaster Revival Lupin The Third – 2nd Edition.
