Zenith's famed watch cuts the fat with a laundry list of featherweight components in their new El Primero Lightweight. Limited to 100 pieces, the 45mm watch combines a carbon case with an inner structure of aluminum that is turned into ceramic for enhanced strength and durability. That focus on creating a lightweight timepiece also extends into the movement where Zenith replaced the usual brass components with titanium which perfectly complements the already light and high-tech silicon double chronograph wheel. They've also accessorized the watch with a Nomex-coated band, the same material used in fire suits.
