A legend exists among horologists. The rumor is that Zenith decided to build their Chronomaster in an anodized titanium case for the ultimate dark accessory. However, as the 1970's were approaching, bling and luster were the zeitgeist of the watch industry. Therefore, after a few prototypes were made, this black beast was shelved for a time when we needed a dark hero. Much like Batman returning to Gotham, Zenith has unveiled the CHRONOMASTER Revival Shadow.
