Zenith El Primero Chronomaster 1969 Tour Auto Edition is Mighty Sporty
When it comes to European long-distance classic car rallies, Tour Auto is among the most enthralling and, with the 24th running set to kick off in Paris not on this Monday but the following Monday, one of the most well-established. So established is Tour Auto, in fact, that it even has a big-name Swiss watchmaker signed on as the event’s official timekeeper: Zenith. So it shouldn’t come as a massive shock that Zenith is producing a limited edition watch commemorating this colorful event.
Based on the regular El Primero Chronomaster 1969 chronograph, the El Primero Chronomaster 1969 Tour Auto Edition features a snazzy French Tricolor racing stripe that runs the length of the blue leather strap and continues across the watch’s face. That face, incidentally, resides within a 42mm brushed steel case that features a window at the rear to show off the automatic El Primero 4061 movement. Just 500 of these beauties will be produced, so you might want to get in touch with your preferred Zenith dealer PDQ if you want a shot at being able to put one on your wrist.
