El Primero 400 B movement
The feat achieved by the engineers at the time lay in combining high frequency with a remarkable over 50-hour power reserve that is matched by today’s El Primero 400 B movement. This accomplishment is all the more noteworthy in that El Primero movements are still the only series-produced high-frequency chronograph calibres on the market. A worthy descendant of a mechanical icon is duty bound to carry its essential genes. Its cadence of 36,000 vibrations per hour guarantees the 1/10th of a second precision that has been part of the El Primero movement’s legend since 1969. This is certainly true of the El Primero 400 B movement with the top quality fake Zenith El Primero chronograph watch’s integrated column-wheel construction and exemplary character proudly testifying to its exceptional heritage.
