If I have typed it a thousand times. "Where there is passion there is fashion" and what group of people are more passionate than cigar smokers. Zenith has upped the ante with a special celebratory watch for Cohiba. It borrows the hues of tobacco and plays off the classic Cohiba trademark with gold accents emblematic of the Behike label.
A purveyor of some of the world’s finest Cuban cigars, Cohiba is collaborating with Zenith watches for a limited edition of the El Primero Chronograph 1969 that features a number of design aesthetics influenced by the prestigious cigar maker.
Created to honor the cigar brand’s 50th anniversary, The El Primero Chronograph 1969 Cohiba features a deep havana brown dial with a number of motifs representative of the famous Cuban brand. The famous profile of aboriginal chief Taino, the manufacture’s emblem, appears alongside the Zenith and Cohiba logos. The piece’s legendary movement is housed inside an elegant 42 mm rose gold case. The watch’s caseback is engraved with Cohiba’s 50th anniversary logo and reveals an oscilating weight with the “Côtes de Genève”. At 11 o’clock, the famous opening of the dial reveals the palpitations of the automatic El Primero 4061 chronograph movement.
