  • Catalogue Essay

    -Based on the funky and unmistakably 1960s inspired reference G383, the present Zenith Chronomaster Revival Poker Chip is an icon reimagined in the 21st century, made in collaboration with Singapore-based watch media SJX Watches. An explosion of funk and disco, the reference G383 features a quirky sectored dial with black and gold patterns that is reminiscent of a poker chip you would see in a game of Texas Hold’em.

    -Featuring a striking matte gun metal titanium case with an equally striking luminous dial, the case of this revival model is micro-blasted and based on the 38mm El Primero A386, giving the watch a more contemporary aesthetic.

    -Beating inside this Zenith Chronomaster Revival Poker Chip is the El Primero 400, same movement found in the reference G383.

    -A spectacular reinterpretation of the original, the Chronomaster Revival “Poker Chip” was produced in a limited edition of 200 pieces only and is presented in virtually unworn condition.

  • Artist Biography


    Swiss • 1865

    Since Zenith's beginnings, founder George Favre-Jacot sought to manufacture precision timepieces, realizing quality control was best maintained when production was housed under one roof. Zenith remains one of the few Swiss manufacturers to produce their own in-house movements to this day.

    Today, the brand is best known for the "El Primero," the firm's most successful automatic chronograph movement. In an interesting twist of fate, the company that owned Zenith during the 1970s decided to move on to quartz movements and therefore sought to destroy the parts and tools necessary to make mechanical movements. One watchmaker realized this folly and hid the tools and parts before they were destroyed. In 1984, he returned them to Zenith so they could once again make the El Primero movement.
