ReviewA Delightful Diversification Of The Zenith Chronomaster Sport

Zenith's introduction of various versions of the iconic Chronomaster Sport marks a refreshing change, broadening the choices for enthusiasts. Let's delve into how the brand is accomplishing this

May We Recommend

When I think of the Zenith Chronomaster Sport, I typically envision the classic sporty design featuring black or white dials with striking blue and grey sub-dials. However, it appears that Zenith are ready to challenge this traditional aesthetic.

With their new range of timepieces, the brand is breaking away from its usual Chronomaster design by introducing a diverse range of new editions. These include trendy green, classic yet improved titanium, and reliable blue versions. Despite this departure from the typical design, Zenith ensure they retain the iconic sub-dial hues of blue, anthracite, and grey. Let’s explore how the brand is shaking up the Chronomaster lineup with these fresh variations while still honouring its heritage.

From Classic to Colourful: Evolution Of The Chronomaster Sport Collection

Since the introduction of the Chronomaster Sport line in early 2021, Zenith have been steadily expanding the collection with various versions. Starting from the initial two black-and-white dial variants released in 2021 to the exclusive Chronomaster Sport Boutique Edition featuring a silver dial; each edition has maintained a distinct aesthetic. However, this year marks a significant shift after the remarkable success of the limited-edition Chronomaster Sport Aaron Rodgers model and the pink-dial version supporting the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation. Zenith are now embarking on an anticipated transition into the realm of coloured dials and embellished editions.

This transition brings forth several notable changes, including the introduction of the highly anticipated blue dial version in stainless steel, an updated titanium edition featuring integrated rubber straps for enhanced comfort and style, and the introduction of a fresh green variant boasting Zenith’s first-ever green ceramic bezel paired with an integrated rubber strap.

Zenith’s Green Revolution

Zenith takes a bold step forward with the introduction of the green version of its popular Chronomaster Sport. This marks the brand’s first venture into creating a permanent green-coloured Chronomaster Sport watch, following the success of the earlier limited edition Aaron Rodgers version. The decision to add this vibrant hue to the collection is a natural evolution after the positive reception of the Aaron Rodgers edition.

Maintaining the signature 41mm steel case, the new edition boasts a striking green lacquered dial, a departure from the traditional colour palette. It debuts a matching ceramic bezel with contrasting sub-dials in the iconic shades of grey and blue. The rhodium-plated hour and minute hands, featuring a centre lume section, are accompanied by chronograph hands adorned with red tips, adding a dynamic touch to the design. Available in two references, the watch is offered with both a three-link stainless steel bracelet and a green FKM rubber strap, providing versatility and style to the Chronomaster Sport lineup.

Monochromatic, Lightweight, And Luxurious: A Tale Of Titanium

In collaboration with the 2024 Ultimate Tennis Showdown, Zenith have introduced their lightest rendition yet of the award-winning 1/10th of a second Chronomaster Sport—the Titanium version, accompanied by a fresh lineup of integrated rubber straps. What immediately catches the eye is the watch’s monochromatic appearance, a departure from the earlier iterations of the Chronomaster Sport collection known for their contrasting colours. The nickel-tone sunburst dial, adorned with anthracite, light grey, and silver sub-dials, is complemented by faceted rhodium-plated hands and indexes filled with black lacquer, exuding an aura of understated elegance. Subtle pops of colour in bright red elements add a touch of vibrancy to the overall design, creating a perfect balance.

Weighing a mere 105 g, the Chronomaster Titanium is an astounding 30 percent lighter than its stainless steel counterparts while maintaining competitive robustness. Encased in a 41mm grade-5 titanium case, the watch is paired with a grade-5 titanium bracelet and is offered with a new selection of rubber strap options. Crafted from durable and supple FKM rubber renowned for its exceptional resistance to heat and harsh chemicals, these straps are available in black, blue, green, and white—each accompanied by folding clasps for added convenience and security.

A Beautiful Beauty In Blue

At first glance, the Chronomaster Sport in stainless steel with a blue dial appears quite conventional and standard. However, upon closer inspection, one will notice a notable difference: the addition of a stainless-steel bezel instead of the usual ceramic one. Maintaining the standard 42mm case diameter, the stainless-steel case ensures water resistance up to 100m. The blue metallic dial, boasting a sunburst finish, serves as the backdrop for three registers in light grey, dark grey, and blue, creating a harmonious blend of colours. Departing from the ceramic bezel, the new design features a fully polished stainless-steel bezel with black-filled inlays, serving as a 1/10th of a second scale. Completing the ensemble is a three-link stainless steel bracelet with a folding buckle, adding a touch of refinement to the overall aesthetic.

Operating at 36,600vph and offering a commendable power reserve of 60 hours, the Chronomaster Sport continues to deliver precision and functionality that is unrivaled within its price range.
