This podcast discusses the controversial 2021 Zenith Chronomaster Sport while putting the new chronograph in a historic perspective. There’s no denying that Zenith’s design team drew heavily on the current Rolex Daytona 116500LN. But this borrowing practice has a long history in Swiss watch design; the 1977 Vacheron Constantin 222 sports watch illustrates how a derivative design can become appreciated in its own right. Today’s episode also explores the difference between “independent” watchmakers such as Rolex and the “indies” such as F.P. Journe that are generally identified with modern independent horology.
