Zenith has launched pretty powerful models over the past twelve to eighteen months. One of the brightest stars is undoubtedly the award-winning Chronomaster Sport. So far, we’ve seen it in full steel or a luxurious rose gold case with a strap. Both models featured a black ceramic bezel, the signature tri-coloured sub-dials and black or matte white dials. New for 2022, Zenith expands the Chronomaster Sport range with four new iterations. One boutique edition in steel with a tri-colour ceramic bezel, one in two-tone steel-and-gold, and two in full gold! Talk about a bold move!
The Chronomaster Sport was already a formidable watch, to begin with, and it was exceptionally well-received, for good reason. It is robust, looks gorgeous, sits well on the wrist and comes with a brilliant movement. In short, the total package. Nevertheless, Zenith now answers the cries of those looking to up the bling or funky factor.
Chronomaster Sport Boutique Edition
The first stand-out piece is the new Zenith Chronomaster Sport Boutique Edition. Just like last year’s Chronomaster Original e-Commerce, this cuts the watch’s 1/10th of a second scale into three sections. While the silver-grey-and-blue scale was placed on the dial of the Chronomaster Original, here it’s located on the ceramic bezel. The colours match the sub-dials for the running seconds and the chronograph, a signature element for the brand. Aesthetically nothing else changes, as we still get that 41mm wide steel case, with a brushed and polished finish attached to a steel brushed and polished bracelet. The price for the Zenith Chronomaster Sport Boutique Edition is CHF 11,900.
Chronomaster Sport Two-Tone
Two-tone or bicolour, steel and gold watches have been enjoying a revival of sorts in recent years. The combination of cold steel offset against warm and luxurious gold just works. New for the Zenith Chronomaster Sport is the introduction of just that, a two-tone steel and gold model. The Midas touch is applied to the bracelet, the bezel, the crown and the pushers, and the markers on the now silver-toned dial. This takes the Chronomaster Sport in a completely different direction, whilst still retaining its solid build. Inside, we still find the El Primero 3600 automatic, capable of measuring elapsed time down to 1/10th of a second. The bicolour Zenith Chronomaster Sport retails for CHF 16,900.
Chronomaster Sport Full Gold
Lastly, we have a pair of Zenith Chronomaster Sport models with the full Midas touch. This takes the rose gold case from last year’s Chronomaster Sport and extends it to pretty much the entire watch. The 41mm wide case has a gold bezel, crown and pushers and comes on a full gold bracelet with brushed outer links and polished inner links. Like the two-tone variant, the hour indices and hands are gold-plated to match the exterior. Round the back, we have a gold caseback with sapphire crystal, allowing for a full view of the star-shaped rotor driving the movement. This in-house calibre ticks at a pace of 36,000vph, which allows the central chronograph seconds hand to track elapsed time down to 1/10th of a second. It will be no surprise this is the priciest of the bunch, retailing for CHF 37,900.
