Zenith Watches ChicagoZenith Watches ChicagoZenith is one of the most famous timepiece brands on the planet. Through decades of dedicated and focused craftsmanship, it pioneered new designs that have become valuable collector’s items. Here is a look at the five most iconic zenith watches to add to your collection.

Zenith Defy Zero G Titanium

The Zenith Defy Zero G neutralizes the effects of gravity on its ability to keep time through its design. Changes in gravity, from flying, skydiving, or diving underwater to significant depths, changes the speed at which the watch keeps time. This watch isn’t affected because of its unique gravity control system.

The intricacy of the design is what catches people’s attention. All of the components along the face are framed with thin, intricately connected support pieces. This watch looks like something out of a science fiction movie, combined with the polished titanium and intricate framework. The reduced amount of material and the use of titanium make it lightweight, as well. It is a great choice for a collector or anyone who needs a watch that will be accurate anywhere. 

Zenith Chronomaster El Primero and El Primero Original 1969

The El Primero Original 1969 maintains the classic design, which speaks of quality and style. It has the style that people think of when they think of classic watches. A handcrafted leather band, minimal face, and elegant dials stand out as a way to embrace traditional design elements while integrating modern technology for better performance. 

For a more modern look, the El Primero is a better option. It retains much of the traditional shaping and arrangement choices while upgrading it with modern design aesthetics. It has a more intricate and mechanical design, which is eyecatching and sophisticated. Choosing between the two is just a choice between a classic and a modern aesthetic. Both are made with high quality, style, and functionality in mind. 

Pilot Cronometro Tip CP-2

The Pilot Cronometro Tip CP-2 features a 1960s style pilot aesthetic. Its green and black coloring already stand out from other options. However, its simplicity is most notable. Everything that is not essential has been removed, creating a minimal design that makes every feature and highlight stand out. It is a great option for any ensemble that needs highlights rather than intricacy for the full effect. 


In terms of technology, the Pilot Cronometro Tip CP-2 has a relatively unique feature. The chronograph has the flyback technology, which lets it reset instantly rather than having to stop first. It makes timing things much faster and is a feature that is unique to flyback chronographs. The majority of chronographs do not have this feature, making the Pilot Cronometro Tip CP-2 a more valuable collector’s item.

Elite Captain Central Second Silver Sunray Dial

If you need a watch that makes a classy, yet understated statement, the Elite Captain Central Second Silver Sunray Dial Watch is a great option. Its features are available in silver, gold, and black, which matches a captain’s uniform. It makes a classy statement with elegant features and an uncluttered appearance. That way, it can work within an ensemble without needing to be the centerpiece.
