Zenith has partnered with brand ambassador and NFL quarterback Aaron Rodgers to launch the first Chronomaster Sport limited edition watch.
Functionality is the same as the standard model, but it introduces the first green dial and ceramic bezel to the series.
It was also the first watch to use Arabic numerals on the dial.
For better or worse, the Zenith Chronomaster Sport has been compared to the Rolex Daytona since its launch. Considering the respect in which the king was held, this was by no means a dishonorable thing to do. Whether it’s ceramic or steel bezels, the watch world finds itself with modern and neo-retro models alike. Of course, those in the know know the connection between Zenith and Rolex, which has used Zenith’s legendary El Primero movement to power the Daytona for years. Currently, the Chronomaster Sport stands out technically with its high-beat movement, whose central chronograph seconds hand rotates a full revolution every ten seconds and is accurate to a tenth of a second. So, all the noise aside, they are equally striking chronographs with unique characteristics. Today, however, Zenith has irrefutably done something their rival chronographs have never done before and launched the first-ever Chronomaster Sport limited edition. To pay homage to its brand ambassador, NFL quarterback Aaron Rodgers, Zenith cheap has launched the Chronomaster Sport Aaron Rodgers Limited Edition with a green dial and green ceramic bezel – something we’ve always wanted but never had. Never owned a Hulk chronograph, until now.
The Chronomaster Sport Aaron Rodgers is limited to 250 pieces and has the same dimensions and features as the standard production model. The difference, of course, is the green ceramic bezel and dial, which many will associate with Rodgers’ current NFL team, the New York Jets. For those unfamiliar with American football, the New York Jets home jersey is green with white accents. Before joining the Jets this year, Rodgers spent the first 17 years of his NFL career with the Green Bay Packers, whose home uniforms also feature green. The Jets simply complemented the green with white, while the Packers used yellow and white accents on their green home jerseys. I point this out because the green on this watch is instantly clear and there is a white to gray spectrum of white SuperLuminova and tri-color register.
Look closely and you’ll notice that the tips of the chronograph hands are a Packers-style yellow. coincide? I’m just being cheeky here because there’s no official statement from Zenith about how they arrived at the color combinations, but when you think about it, having a green background means you have to tilt the chronograph hands to the correct color for legibility. Go through them in your mind. Red is too Christmassy, orange is a bit vomit-inducing, white is too uniform, and black or blue is a bit hard to tell. Ultimately, yellow has the loudest pop of color and, in my opinion, complements the dial beautifully. Especially given its (un)conscious, subtle symbolism. BTW – I have to give Zenith props for perfectly matching the color of the date window to the dial. Many brands gloss over this detail, but Zenith took its time to get it right. https://www.proreviewwatch.co
Another first for the Chronomaster Sport is the use of Arabic numerals for the hour markers rather than a full set of baton numerals. The use of numbers is meant to be reminiscent of the numbers on the front and back of NFL jerseys. On the back, the El Primero 3600 is displayed beneath a sapphire crystal. The crystal also features a commemorative etching of Aaron Rodgers’ personal “AR” logo, slightly blocking the view of the movement below.
As an American, I’m biased against Aaron Rodgers’ popularity. Domestically, he certainly has influence. From an international perspective, I can’t say for sure. Watch fans, Jets fans, Packers fans or Aaron Rodgers fans will all be interested in this version, but in the context of the broader watch community who are less familiar with Rodgers or the NFL, I predict this Chronomaster Sport Sales will be quite fast due to its green dial and green ceramic bezel. Not only was green the recently certified color of the year, but executed in this manner, it offers watch collectors a brief opportunity to own a Hulk colorway chronograph that is a heavyweight in the category. replica watches for sale
