Since 2014, Zenith has been accompanying the living legends of rock, The Rolling Stones, on the international scene. In honor of the famous British band, Zenith has produced a black ceramic watch with an open-worked dial, a fast-paced El Primero ‘engine’ and design nods to the 60’s rockers.
The new Zenith chronograph is dedicated to the Rolling Stones. It’s an imposing 45 mm black ceramic case frames an openworked dial setting the scene for a spectacular high-flying mechanical show. The three-dimensional display features a Stones symbol small seconds indication, in yet another reference to the fabled musicians.
The El Primero Skeleton Tribute to The Rolling Stones in ceramic – the first use of this material in the Zenith range, features a powerfully structured column-wheel chronograph in deep black with red accents. Its skeleton-type construction vividly showcases the El Primero mechanism.
Housed in a case water-resistant to 100 meters, this open-worked display features hands evoking the neck of a Fender Telecaster 1950s electric guitar, along with luminescent nickel-plated hour-markers. The red color of the star-tipped center seconds hand matches that of the date, with its cut-out numerals standing out boldly against a crimson dot at 6 o’clock.
In a powerful visual echo, the famous “tongue and lips” logo, inspired by the mouth of lead singer Mick Jagger, appears on the seconds disc, spinning like a vinyl record on a turntable. The watch is a limited edition of 250 pieces.
