Luxury car maker Land Rover and Swiss brand Zenith recently collaborated to create an exclusive Zenith El Primero Range Rover Special Edition watch collection. While car and watch makers have a pretty elaborate history of associations with the Breitling with Bentley and the Ferrari – Hublot tie up being the recent names in the lot, the unique new El Primero edition promises to cater to the elite who particularly adore all things sporty!
Focused primarily on the Range Rover SUV collection, the watch comes in a 42mm wide, ceramised, matte-finished aluminum case that is inspired by the all-aluminum chassis material of the Range Rover. Beautiful and contemporary, the dark toned dial perfectly accentuates the vertically brushed finishing and minimalist design touches of the timepiece. Further, the strap done in an exquisite perforated calfskin leather (in ivory or blue), effortlessly make you reminisce on the classic leather seat interiors of the car. The edition also boasts of the Zenith El Primero caliber 400B automatic movement (easily visible via the sapphire crystal caps in the front and back of the watch), a 5Hz (36,000 bph) operative accuracy and a power reserve of 50 hours. Being water-resistant up to 100 meters and predominantly sporty in its appearance, this one is a flawless fit for the robust off-roading tours you may (or are at least recommended to ) often undertake in your cherished Range Rover.
Functionally uncompromising, the watch comes with an extra strap in navy blue to occasionally replace the standard ivory rubber-and-leather strap. The watch further comes encased in a fine wooden brushed box lined with the same leather that you may easily spot on your sophisticated SUV. Priced at $7,700, this one is sure tickle the fancy of diehard Range Rover enthusiasts!
