While most folks are familiar with the concept of a “barn find” when it comes to cars, discovering forgotten gear in other industries is much rarer. However, it does happen from time to time and, often, it can be extremely significant. Such is the case with a rare Zenith watch prototype that was discovered last year and subsequently reintroduced as the Zenith A384 Chronomaster Revival Shadow you see here.
Interestingly, this limited-edition release is actually based on another revived watch from the brand’s past, the Zenith A384. It even boasts the same 37mm case, the same trio of sub-dials, a tachymeter bezel, and — most importantly — an El Primero 4061 automatic movement with a 50-hour power reserve. What sets this one apart, besides its limited availability, is a black PVD-coated lightweight titanium case, which matches the dial and a new “Cordura effect” strap. Pick up one of these stealthy redux timepieces for $8,700 while you still can.
