Zenith El Primero Sport Land Rover BAR Team Limited Edition

Zenith El Primero Sport Land Rover BAR Team Limited Edition


The Zenith El Primero could be described as one of the most important movements in the history of watchmaking. Meaning “The First” in Spanish, in 1969 the El Primero claims to have beaten its competition to become the first automatic chronograph.

In 2017 Zenith used a modern iteration of the El Primero movement to create a special edition watch in collaboration with Sir Ben Ainslie’s America’s Cup racing team, limited to just 250 pieces.


As expected, the watch gives accurate Swiss timekeeping a sporty edge. It’s 45mm steel case is water resistant to 200m and has both brushed and polished finishes. This continues onto the dial where a dark grey brushed background features polished hands and indices.


The sapphire exhibition case back is decorated with the number “3”, Sir Ben Ainslie’s lucky number. Underneath you can view the El Primero 400 movement, with its  integrated column-wheel construction that beats at a cadence of 36,000 vibrations per hour, and offering an impressive 50-hour power reserve.


The watch is paired with a black rubber strap coated in carbon fibre – the same material used in the construction of the team boat.


We are excited to present this 2017 watch in a very good pre-owned condition, supplied with its original presentation box, warranty card, instruction booklet, quick-step guide, card holder and swing tag.
