Zenith watches are known for their many fine qualities; its Chronomaster Open Neo Vintage is a luxury timepiece that displays so many of them. With its cool, round stainless steel case and delicately varnished dial, it is supremely stylish. Its visible, pulsating escapement mechanism makes it exciting. Its chronographic functions make it exceedingly useful. Indeed, this is a wristwatch specifically designed to appeal to a wide range of fine timepiece enthusiasts.
At the heart of the Zenith Chronomaster Open Neo Vintage sits the in-house manufactured El Primero 4021 automatic movement, outfitted with 39 jewels that nearly eliminate the potentially destructive forces of excessive friction. This ensures that the watch will last over generations of daily use and admiration. A power meter complication positioned at six o'clock on the watch's face ensures that the wearer is always well informed of the current automatic power reserve status.
The "Open" in the Chronomaster Open Neo Vintage's name is a direct reference to the large opening cut though the dial's nine to 11 o'clock region that dramatically exposes the beating heart of the El Primero movement. It is a truly mesmerizing and highly coveted feature that will certainly attract the attention of anyone within eyesight of the watch. Among the cutout at nine o'clock sits a small seconds counter that offers a time gradation beyond that offered by the central hours and minutes hands. At three o'clock sits a 30-minute counter. A central chronograph hand counts seconds and is controlled by push buttons positioned above and below the crown.
All watches in this series feature stainless steel cases in either brown, blue or anthracite with matching leather strap and triple folding buckle with fine-grained patina finishing.
