Following last summer’s announcement of its partnership with the Rolling Stones (and the launch of the first Zenith / Rolling Stones watch), Zenith is back with a new, limited edition 1969 Chronomaster watch to celebrate the partnership. This time around, the watch with is given what might be considered more of a rocker’s look, with a black-DLC finished titanium case and a black strap stamped with a British flag (Union Jack) motif. And unlike the first model which had the Rolling Stones tongue on the dial (a bit tacky, one might argue), this version nicely integrates it into the rotor, visible through the sapphire caseback. The last model also incorporated the tongue logo on the caseback glass, but overall I find this execution much more attractive.
