At the occasion of the 2017 Geneva International Motor Show, Zenith and Land Rover are celebrating their creative relationship by presenting a new Chronomaster El Primero Range Rover Velar Special Edition.
The timepiece features a new elegant brushed grey dial with copper-toned details, and a new black rubber strap coated with black-toned perforated calfskin, inspired by ideas from both brands’ product design and engineering departments.
In 1969, Zenith unveiled its fabled El Primero chronograph. That same year, British car manufacturer Land Rover introduced the prototype of the very first luxury off-road vehicle: the iconic Range Rover, which hit the markets in 1970.Fired by the same pioneering spirit and the same ability to explore new horizons, these two original creations achieved legendary status.

In 2017, Zenith and Land Rover are continuing to celebrate the creative relationship. Featuring a ceramised aluminium case of 42 mm and beating at 36,000 vibrations per hour, the new Chronomaster El Primero Range Rover Velar Special Edition introduces an appealing brushed grey dial with copper-toned details.
Whether on the wrist of an intrepid explorer or an elegant gentleman, it also exudes an inimitably chic aura, enhanced by a new black rubber strap coated with black-toned perforated calfskin. This leather is the same high quality hide used on Range Rovers and is secured by a triple folding clasp in DLC-treated titanium.
