an icon in swiss watch movements. the El Primero is famous for vibrating at an
astounding 36,000 vph (vibrations or beats per hour) / 10 beats per second, the
fastest out of any movement to ever be created within the swiss wristwatch
industry. This pioneering movement drives the Astronic Chronograph with an
astounding 50 hour power reserve, rotating moonphase, tachymeter that
measures speed up to 1000 mph and triple date features.
This model had a limited production of approximately 2,000 pieces in 1980 after the acquisition of the movements from Zenith Movado. Approximately 20 pieces remain, and this watch will no longer be produced.
