Zenith Adds a Titanium Chronomaster Sport to the Collection

The last two weeks have been big for Zenith’s El Primero line. First an El Primero Triple Calendar, then two new Chronomaster Sport references, one in green the other in rose gold with a gem set bezel. Now Zenith is dropping another entirely iteration, in a new metal: the Chronomaster Sport Titanium.

The watch was announced as a part of Zenith’s partnership with famed tennis coach Patrick Mouratoglou’s Ultimate Tennis Showdown league, which kicks off its season this month. (Mouratoglou is well-known to tennis fans, but to give outsiders a sense of his stature, this guy coached Serena Williams for her last decade on tour, arguably her most dominant era.) Zenith has been the official timekeeper for the league since it launched in 2020, and the new Chronomaster Sport seems designed with that relationship and serious athletic activity in mind.

The Chronomaster Sport Titanium features a 41mm grade 5 titanium case, bezel, and bracelet–though a strap option is also available for $500 less–making the watch 30% lighter than the steel models. (Surprisingly, the titanium model is also not that much more expensive than comparable steel models, coming in at $11,800 on the bracelet, versus $11,300 for a stainless steel Chronomaster Sport on the bracelet.) Titanium is also highly-resistant to corrosion, making it an ideal metal for a watch that’s meant to be worn in sweat-inducing environments.


A signature of the Chronomaster Sport is its use of color, particularly on the three subdials, which are often presented in three different colors. Zenith decided to lean into the titanium aspect of the watch with the Chronomaster Sport Titanium’s aesthetic, and made the case, dial, and bezel a metallic gray. A mix of polishing and satin-brushing keeps things from being monotonous, particularly the sunray dial and sunburst satin brushing on the bezel. The three subdials are different shades of gray, and the tips of the seconds hand and central chronograph provide the smallest pops of red.

Powered by an El Primero 3600 movement, the Chronomaster Sport Titanium boasts a power reserve of 60 hours and timing accuracy to the tenth of a second. An exhibition caseback lets you see the movement and its satin-finished, star-engraved rotor through a sapphire crystal.

Alongside the new Chronomaster Sport, Zenith is also releasing a new line of integrated rubber straps in black, blue, green, and white with folding clasps for those looking for a sportier feel.

The Zenith Chronomaster Sport Titanium is available now through authorized Zenith retailers and in Zenith boutiques. Zenith
