Zenith has given its 1960s A384 a wilderness-inspired makeover, creating the Chronomaster Revival Safari.
Zenith’s design team has sought to bring the colors and textures of the great outdoors to the A384’s silhouette with a 37mm microblasted tourneau-shaped titanium case and green dial, which is by far the hottest color in watchmaking this year.
The softened, matte finish and gunmetal shade of microblasted titanium transforms the look of a case which is more normally presented in polished and brushed stainless steel.
The Chronomaster Revival‘s forest green dial is paired with a color-matched date wheel with white numerals and a window at the half-past-four position to minimize its impact, while black chronograph sub dials offer legibility without too much in the way of contrast. Applied rhodium-plated hour markers and hands are infilled with a beige “fauxtina” Super-LumiNova.
The watch head, which is water resistant to 50m, is secured on a rubber and corder-effect strap in a matching green shade and fastened with a pin buckle in matching microblasted titanium. Inside is a high-beat 5Hz El Primero 400 Automatic column wheel chronograph movement with 50 hours power reserve.
The Zenith Chronomaster Revival Safari is available now via Zenith, priced $9,000 USD.
