Combining the style of George Bamford's favorite vintage Zenith wtches and elements of a Zenith pocket watch from 1916, BWD presents its latest limited edition, the El Primero Radar. The watch features a 42mm case with a silver matte finish and a new take on the classic tri-compax dial with a burnt brown dial that darkens as it reaches the edges of the watch. The watch is powered by an El Primero 400 B automatic movement with a 50 hour power reserve. Completing the look of the watch is a black rubber strap with red stitching and a microblasted stainless steel triple folding clasp.
