Zenith El Primero Star Open Chronograph

After couple months of indecision, SG adds a new addition to the watch collection. It is a Zenith El Primero Star Chronograph with an open heart to display the intricate mechanics inside the watch casing.In the selection process, I chose automatic mechanical movement to ensure value preservation in the long run. Other than that, I picked the watch for the open heart, a dial showing amount of reserve left in the watch and it’s different, much to the dismay of BF and Savvy Brother. The second hand is the little red heart, which I think is quite unique. Men really want to get down to all the functions, movements, numbers of jewels and such which I really don’t care to know about. This is a sporty fun watch which is perfect for golf and showing off a gal’s athletic side. There is a diamond version available but that would be over the top for a sport watch. So are you a sport watch sort of gal?

Facts about Zenith and this watch:
Zenith is part of the LVMH group.
El Primero debut in 1969 as the first automatic chronograph movement produced in the world capable of measuring short time interval to a tenth of a second.
Zenith produces movements for many of the top watch brands in the world.
This particular watch has 50 hours of reserve.
