  George Bamford, the founder of BamfordWatchDepartment, had a 1916 pocket watch during his first visit to Zenith. The striking red tone on its dial has become the main source of inspiration for the Radar collection. Drawing inspiration from Zenith’s old timepieces, Mr. Bamford has boldly reinvented the classic timepieces, creating a flagship ElPrimeroRadar limited edition watch with a bright retro future.

  Rader redefines the Zenith Chronomaster flagship ElPrimero watch in a striking manner, but while introducing a new design, it also retains the basic elements of the series. Its stainless steel case, crown and buttons are all finely matte. The classic ElPrimero three-color dial with oversized chronograph scale is also re-interpreted by special craftsmanship, with modern charcoal brown, the edges gradually darken, bringing a strong visual impact, just like the iconic white tachymeter on the outer edge of the dial In stark contrast to the radial design.
