Zenith, in order to mark the 15th anniversary of PuristSPro.com, an influential community of passionate watch aficionados, has launched a custom-made timepiece: The Cronometro Tipo CP-2 for PuristSPro!
Based upon Zenith’s recently presented homage to one of the most sought after military pieces, the Cronometro Tipo CP 2, a military chronograph created in the mid-1960s on special order of the Italian Army, the Cronometro Tipo CP-2 for PuristSPro is laden with chromometric delicacies and aesthetic refinements.
Cronometro Tipo CP-2 is popular amongst watch aficionados: Optically true to the original, the difference is mainly a nod to another Zenith legend, the famous El Primero automatic chronograph movement. Renowned for its excellent reliability and its timekeeping precision, it was considered a worthy successor to the original’s manually wound Cal. 146 DP. Like the latter, it features a classical column wheel controlled chronograph, but adds to this an efficient automatic winding and a precise fast-beat escapement with 36,000 VPH. Everything else, the 43mm stainless steel case, the bezel, the black dial with permanent seconds dial and minute counter, the arrow-shaped seconds hand are exact reproductions of the legendary original.
No wonder the Cronometro Tipo CP-2 became an instant favourite when both Zenith and PuristSPro teams brainstormed about the collaborative watch. Only 50 limited pieces will be available exclusively at PuristSPro.com.
