INTRODUCING: The New Zenith Chronomaster Sport Titanium

by Matt Clymo

Zenith has unveiled their latest edition in the Chronomaster Sport collection – this time a monochromatic version in Titanium!

Overnight, Zenith has unveiled their latest in the Chronomaster Sport collection – a monochromatic Titanium version. In addition to the bracelet, Zenith has also equipped this piece with an integrated rubber strap, giving you the option of either variant depending on your choice of looks, or the option to change the look of the piece when and where called for with their line of aftermarket versions.

The new Chronomaster Sport Titanium comes just ahead of the opening matches of Patrick Mouratoglou’s UTS 2024 tennis season. For those not aware, the Ultimate Tennis Showdown (UTS) is a little bit like T20 cricket, but for tennis. Fast and furious with players mic’d up and interacting with the commentators and crowd. Zenith is the proud sponsor and for those who love their tennis, it will be a great show!

White lines and Zenith

The new Titanium version of the Chronomaster keeps the same good looks that we’re used to with the date window at 4:30, the tri-colour subdials on the dial and the 1/10th second hand allowing you to track the chronograph time to the 10th of a second. For this version, Zenith has opted to go with a more monochromatic theme, with the sub-dials in the muted tones of anthracite, grey and silver offsetting the sunray-patterned dial in a galvanic nickel-grey colour.

The silver grey coloured subdials blend in but with enough contrast to stand out.

The brushed titanium gives this whole piece a more subtle look than the original black and white dial steel models. Having seen this in person, it gives a completely different look on the wrist, but without taking away the overall aesthetic that is the Chronomaster Sport. This is particularly noticeable on the fixed bezel, with the bush strokes radiating out from the center evident and giving this piece a much more toolwatch-type look.

In addition, Zenith is debuting a new line of straps it has developed for the Chronomaster Sport line as an alternative to the metal bracelets. Whilst they did this with the Defy Skyline range a while back and featured their quick-release system, this is the first time that the rubber straps have been made an option for the Chronomaster Sport range. Whilst the new Titanium model comes with the bracelet or the black rubber strap, Zenith is now making the straps available to purchase separately, and in a range of colours: black, blue, green and white. In addition, the straps are delivered with folding clasps which is a nice touch!

Inside you have the the Zenith El Primero Calibre 3600. With its high frequency of 5 Hz (36’000 VpH), the movement offers a true 1/10th of a second indication when the chronograph is engaged and comes complete with a 60-hour power reserve. The see-through case back shows a sleeker and more open design, revealing a blue column wheel and open rotor marked with the five-pointed Zenith star.

Final Thoughts

To me, the Zenith Chronomaster Sport has always been a good looking watch. Yes when it launched people instantly compared it to the Daytona, but then again, there are only so many design elements you can do with a racing-style chronograph with a tachymeter bezel. Since then, Zenith has made the Chronomaster Sport its own, and with multiple variants in steel, gold, and now Grade 5 Titanium, I feel the Chronomaster Sport can safely be set apart.

This is a sleek watch too. The brushed Titanium makes this piece look subtle, but not too much so, and due to the Titanium case and bracelet, this piece is around 30% lighter than its steel counterparts. And you feel it on the wrist too. The addition of the rubber strap variant is a nice touch, however, you still need to use a spring bar tool to change the strap over, which is good if you wanted anything aftermarket on this, but a little more effort than a quick-release mechanism like on the Defy Skyline. But hey, it’s fun to tinker!
