This watch proves that a true classic never loses its appeal. After all, the elegant Chronomaster Original with its black dial and exclusive calfskin is a modern reinterpretation of an icon – since the legendary A386 served as its model – and a stylish everyday companion.

At first glance, much seems to be similar. The Calibre El Primero 3600 is housed in a slim 38-mm case, but in the Chronomaster Original, the movement impresses with a 60-hour power reserve. The brushed stainless steel of the case is a modern contrast to the sapphire crystal case back that means the El Primero 3600 is always in view.

The Chronomaster Original is the result of 50 years of continuous improvement and development. Nevertheless, the icon remains true to itself. The watch features hours and minutes in the centre and small seconds at 9 o’clock, a central chronograph that makes one turn in 10 seconds, a 60-minute counter at 6 o’clock, a 60-second counter at 3 o’clock, and it is water-resistant to 50 metres.
