Zenith continues digging into its archives with the understated Chronomaster Revival “Shadow.” An all-black revamp of an unreleased ’70s-era prototype, the monochrome watch is yet another timely take on Zenith’s re-released A384 style.
Featuring one of Zenith’s fan-favorite El Primero movements, the Chronomaster Revival “Shadow” is inspired by black vacuum-coated (PVD) steel chronograph prototypes toyed with by Zenith in the early ’70s, updated with some subtle stylistic tinkering. 4mm slimmer than the original, the “Shadow” case is microblasted titanium, offering dual shades of black and grey throughout for heightened visibility (its coated hands also glow in the dark). Rich texture and a date-free El Primero 4061 automatic movement give the watch additional visual appeal, without sacrificing the versatility of its muted palette.
Retailing for CHF 8,400 francs (nearly $8,700 USD), the Zenith Chronomaster Revival Shadow is a limited edition release — contact a Zenith representative for more information.
