Zenith and Cohiba, the celebrated name of the most sought-after cigars in the world, share the same philosophy of excellence, sophistication and exclusivity. Created in 1966, today the Cohiba brand is celebrating half a century of existence. At its side on the occasion of this anniversary, Zenith is presenting a limited series of its best replica Zenith El Primero chronograph classic watch , with 50 watches in rose gold and 500 in stainless steel, all featuring a Havana brown dial and emblematic Cohiba motifs.Like the Manufacture Zenith, the Cohiba brand is an avant-garde actor in the world of Habanos. Unashamedly elitist, entirely hand-made with long filler Cohiba cigars are the most exclusive Habanos cigars and the preserve of the most discerning connoisseurs.
On May 24th, at the very heart of Havana, the watchmaking Manufacture represented by its CEO, Aldo Magada, launched the brown Zenith El Primero Chronomaster 1969 Cohiba replica watch commemorating the 50th anniversary of Cohiba, the emblematic Habanos brand!
Christened Cohiba in 1966 and officially registered in 1969, the name of the brand comes from the term used by Tainos Indians to describe the rolls of tobacco leaves, which were the ancestors of cigars. Part of the secret of Cohiba lies in an additional fermentation of the Seco and Ligero leaves of its blend which takes place in wooden barrels. This very special process is reflected in a complex aroma and balanced taste, combining power and delicacy.
At 11 o’clock, the famous opening of the dial reveals the palpitations of the automatic El Primero 4061 chronograph movement. With its 36,000 vibrations an hour cadence enabling a 1/10th of a second display, its COSC precision-certified chronometer and integrated column-wheel construction, this El Primero ‘engine’ is a worthy heir to the world’s most precise series-made chronograph series presented by Zenith in 1969. Equipped with a silicon lever and escape-wheel, this 282-part movement driving central hour and minute, chronograph and tachymeter functions is endowed with an over 50-hour power reserve.
The exclusive “anniversary” top quality fake El Primero Chronomaster 1969 Cohiba Edition is adorned in glossy chestnut reminiscent of the amber colour of the prestigious cigars. Its Havana brown dial is spanned with vertical lines and distinctive motifs of the Cuban brand. The profile of aboriginal chief Taino, the manufacture’s emblem, appears alongside the Zenith and Cohiba logos. The watch comes in an elegant 42 mm-diameter rose gold case, fitted with a fluted crown and two round push-pieces. Topped by a domed sapphire crystal, this display is punctuated by facetted, luminescent hands. The sapphire caseback, engraved with the Cohiba’s 50th anniversary logo, reveals an oscillating weight adorned with “Côtes de Genève”.
