Black Dial Zenith El Primero Range Rover Replica Watch
The Black Dial Zenith El Primero Range Rover Replica Watch case features a matte black aluminum and ceramic alloy case symbolizing the Range Rover body which is crafted using aluminum for the body. Not to say it is the first black case withing the El Primero line, but it is arguably one of the most understated. Moreover, I find the brushed gray dial particularly striking. Especially in contrast to the applied rhodium-plated faceted hour indices; and the rhodium-plated faceted hands. Coupled with the brushed steel flange, with printed tachymeter scale, and the white printed outer chapter ring and subdials, the watch exudes a sporty elegance reminiscent of a Range Rover.
This is surely either a love or hate type of Zenith El Primero Range Rover Replica Watch, as are most automotive related timepieces. both companies have a similar clientele, and therefore, they decided it was a good strategic investment, especially considering that automobiles and wristwatches are two products that naturally complement each other.
The two company’s most famous product lines, respectively, the El Primero and Range Rover, were created the same year: 1969. Furthermore, three years after, according to Zenith, “explorer John Blashford-Snell crossed the Darién Gap – an inhospitable marshland and virgin forest area on the border between Colombia and Panama – at the wheel of an early Range Rover and with an El Primero chronograph on his wrist.”
And on the back, the words “El Primero Range Rover/Special Edition” are engraved around the perimeter. Finally, the oscillating weight, which is skeletonized and Zenith El Primero Replica Watch features a circular satin brushing motif, is engraved with a Zenith logo on one side and Range Rover logo on the other.
Regardless of the appeal of co-branded timepieces, the new Zenith Replica Watch has a matte black color scheme that is a unique in comparison to the majority of El Primeros in existence. As far as actual nods to the Range Rover, they are all very subtle. The only element on the dial side that identifies the partnership is the words “Zenith Range Rover” printed in white at 12.
