Zenith Reveals Its New “Chronomaster Open” Watch Series

Zenith has announced the release of its new “Chronomaster Open” watch, which is inspired by the brand’s collection of timepieces from the early 2000s.


The “CO” will be available in three different styles: stainless steel with a silver dial, stainless steel with a black dial, and rose gold with a silver dial. Each dial has 16 parts, including Zenith’s signature star logo, balance wheel, seconds wheel, escape wheel, and more.

The addition of a “Caliber 3600” variant, as well as 39.5mm and 13.1mm casing, set the new watch apart from its predecessors at this year’s Watches & Wonders in Geneva.


Romain Marietta, Zenith’s Head of Product Development and Heritage Director, told Hodinkee about the new addition to the brand: “It’s a very strong concept that was created in 2003 in order to enable clients to understand high frequency [watchmaking].” To help people understand high frequency, we had to rework the movement to skeletonize around the escapement position, allowing people to see inside the movement, see the heartbeat.”

The “Chronomaster Open” will be available soon, with a suggested retail price of $10,000 USD on the Zenith’s website.
