First introduced on the Zenith and Range Rover collaboration limited edition, ceramicised aluminium is obtained by subjecting aluminium to a chemical process that creates a ceramic oxide layer on the metal’s surface. This creates a lightweight material with a scratch-resistant surface, though one that’s relatively soft, leaving it prone to scratches.
The ceramicised aluminium case is now part of the regular collection with a pair of El Primero “Panda” chronographs.
This model comes with 42mm case in ceramicised aluminium, as well as the El Primero calibre 400B that ticks at 36,000 beats per hour.
Nicknamed “Panda” for the black sub-dials against a white, such contrast colour dials have become popular once again as a result of the fad for vintage chronographs in a similar style.
