Walking the tightrope between originality and imitation is exceedingly difficult, especially for watchmakers. Working with a canvas measured in millimeters, not inches, striking the balance of practical features and unique styling while also not stepping on the toes of competitors and predecessors becomes an almost impossible task. So it is with some wonder when a watch like the Zenith Chronomaster Revival Liberty comes along.
Limited to just 150 pieces for the North American market, the Zenith 03.US384.400/57.C823 is cousin to the A384 and A385, using the same 37mm tonneau-shaped case. At just 12.6mm thick, it is at once bold and eye-catching when viewed straight on yet subtle and understated when viewed from the side. A matte blue dial contrasts sharply with white subdials that display the El Primero chronograph’s powerful functionality. Most striking of all is that red and white seconds hand. Wait until you see it in action! Mounted on a “Cordura-effect” blue strap with red accent stitching, the Revival Liberty is as bold as it is rare.
