Zenith’s iconic El Primero caliber and Range Rover share a number of key assets, and most importantly their birth year – 1969. To strengthen their historical bonds, two premium brands announced their partnership in 2016, and ever since then Zenith produces special timepieces inspired by the world’s leading off-road vehicles. A special edition Zenith El Primero Range Rover was presented in September 2016, at the unveiling of the Range Rover SVAutobiography Dynamic. The Chronomaster El Primero Range Rover Velar Special Edition was revealed at this year’s BaselWorld; and now the legendary Swiss watchmaker introduces a unique sport watch dedicated to Land Rover BAR team led by Ben Ainslie.
