ZENITH - EL PRIMERO STRATOS FLYBACK AMERICAS LIMITED EDITION

A TRIBUTE TO AMERICA - AVAILABLE IN TWO MODELS

EL PRIMERO STRATOS FLYBACK AMERICAS LIMITED EDITION

The same watch that Felix Baumgartner wore for his epic skydive.

El Primero Stratos Flyback Americas Limited Edition is issued to celebrate Zenith's long lasting presence in South America.

Will be available for purchase only in American continents.

Both of the Zenith El Primero Stratos Flyback Americas Limited Edition models are powered by the brand's most celebrated caliber: EL PRIMERO

EL PRIMERO STRATOS FLYBACK AMERICAS LIMITED EDITION

EL PRIMERO - The first automatic chronograph movement produced in the world.

First released in 1969, El Primero is continuously produced ever since then, and it holds a special place in the world of fine watchmaking as the only high-frequency integrated column-wheel chronograph movement that beats about 25% faster than all other mechanical calibers.

FOLLOWS IN THE TRADITION OF MILITARY CHRONOGRAPHS

EL PRIMERO STRATOS FLYBACK AMERICAS LIMITED EDITION

The cockpit instruments in a fighter plane undergo sudden variations in pressure, intense vibrations and violent accelerations of anywhere from 9 to 11 Gs.

The sturdily built Zenith Stratos can stand up to anything.

A worthy heir to the Rainbow Flyback model developed for the French Air Force in 1997, it has on board the world’s most accurate automatic chronograph:

The legendary El Primero – complemented by a flyback function.

Precision and reliability have been the watchwords of the Manufacture Zenith since 1865.

This obsession with precision was indeed placed in the service of aviation and transport at a very early stage.

Today, this finely crafted timepiece is part of the fascinating world of military and sports aviation, a field firmly focused on performance and on absolute trust in fellow team members.
