The Chronomaster Revival A385 is a faithful reproduction of one of the original three stainless steel El Primero models from 1969, which featured Zenith's first gradient dial in a smoked brown tone and pronounced vignette effect that darkens towards the edges. Keeping with the retro theme, the Chronomaster Revival A385 is available in two options that could have come straight from 1969. The first is the steel “ladder” bracelet, a modern remake of the Gay Frères bracelets that became emblematic of the early El Primero watches.
ZENITH CHRONOMASTER REVIVAL A385 03.A384.400/385.C855
Zenith’s at it again with another extremely faithful re-issue of one of their most iconic watches, the El Primero A385. Part of the original El Primero trio, the A385 was (and is again) arguably the dressiest of the three with a tasteful brown gradient dial.
