Launched in 2021 as a collaborative effort between legendary watchmaker Zenith and esteemed watch blog SJX, the El Primero Chronomaster Revival SJX is a timepiece loosely inspired by the disco-era El Primero G383. Reimagined with plenty of lume, the dial is a “disco at night and also in the day,” as SJX puts it. Constructed of sandblasted titanium instead of gold, the Revival takes design inspiration from the G383, but not to the point where it stifled the creative process. Fitted with its new case material and shape, the Revival has taken the G383’s unique Casino dial and modernized it with heavy lume, sharpened inscriptions along the periphery, and, most notably, a new color palette to match its case. A sleek and stealthy monochromatic timepiece, the Revival can light up like a Christmas tree in the dark with its additional black luminescent-infused strap to match the brightness of its dial. A truly transformative timepiece, the Revival shows just how far vintage timepieces can go in the modern industry with today’s technology and stylistic creativity.
