Introducing The Zenith El Primero Stratos Flyback Rainbow, A 90s Cult Classic Revisited
When Zenith wants to, it can really do a re-edition right. Originally built in 1997, the El Primero "Rainbow" was made to specs set forth by the French Air Force. They had requested a chronograph capable of withstanding forces of up to nine to eleven G's, wide variations in pressure and temperature, and a dial that was extremely easy to read. The result was this:
1973 Zenith Respirator ref. 78765
weekdays in German, 37.5 X 37.5mm. case. Notice the geometry of the dial that reflects light on four directions and the Movado movement cal. 405 that beats at 36000Hz like the el Primero. Respirator comes from the French “respirateur”, reflecting the way this case is built: there is a large gasket between the glass and the case that “breathes”; as water pressure increases the case is compressed, increasing the water resistance.
