Zenith put out a fresh new look for its best collection since 1994. The updated Chronomaster Sport is the latest, most polished version of a collection that made the world turn over 2 decades. For 2021, Chronomaster Sport brings new mechanics and a re-sculpted face.

What’s new

After the inaugural steel editions seen earlier this year, the Chronomaster Sport is now available in rose gold. It brings a fresher and sharper face to the game, all while retaining key elements of the Chronomaster collection. It maintains the angular shape and the distinctive lugs first seen on the 1969 A385 watch.

However, unlike its grandfather, the new 2021 Chronomaster Sport brings along an intermediate 41mm case. The new bezel drastically improves the overall look of the watch, pushing a modern influence. The black ceramic bezel features 1/10th of a second graduation, swaying away from the more common tachymeter scales.

What hasn’t changed

Even with all the novelty, Zenith understood that some things must remain the same. For this reason, the 2021 Chronomaster Sport rose gold preserves the emblematic tri-colour dial.

The dial is the signature element of the El Primero watch series. Right beneath, the silver, blue and gray overlapping dials and the faceted hour markers show homage to the original 1969 watches.

Right beneath the face, you will find the same El Primero calibre 3600 – the most evolved version of the legendary automatic chronograph. Running at the same 5Hz frequency, the central chronograph now makes a 10-second turn, six times faster than a regular chronograph hand.

The power reserve has been increased from 50h to 60h, mostly thanks to an optimized kinetic chain.


The 2021 Zenith Chronomaster Sport in rose gold is now part of Zenith’s permanent collection. It can be acquired online and from Zenith boutiques and third party retailers for roughly $22,000. Learn more on Zenith Watches.
