Zenith‘s El Primero Chronomaster have long been well established in the world of chronographs, but it seems the Swiss luxury watchmaker is just about to release its most iconic model yet: the Chronomaster Revival Manufacture Edition.

While the watch looks very familiar to enthusiasts of the brand, it’s in fact something never released before: the new dial is based on a discovered prototype hidden in the attic of Zenith’s historic Manufacture building. Instead of the tri-color composition of the three subdials, the prototype elegantly featured three shades of blue, each progressively getting darker in tone. The rest of the watch also comes with a vintage flair, staying true to the design sensibilities of that era. Its stainless steel case measures in at a more modest 38mm, paired with classic pump-style pushers to control the chronograph. The movement is none other than the Zenith El Primero 400, operating at 36,000 vibrations per hour and carrying a power reserve of 50 hours.

To learn more about Zenith’s Chronomaster Revival Manufacture Edition, head over to the company’s website, where the watch will retail exclusively for $8,700 USD until its Manufacture building reopens.

Elsewhere in watches, Piaget has updated its Polo S with a limited green dial.
