    Overview: El Primero – meaning ‘the first’ in Esperanto –, the chronograph that was to have a lasting impact on modern watchmaking, was presented on January 10th 1969. Over 40 years on, El Primero is still the most precise series-made chronograph, the only one capable of measuring short times to the nearest tenth of a second.
