Despite having vintage inspiration from twothat are more or less contemporary, the overall energy of the Chronomaster Revival “Shadow” feels quite fresh, which I think comes from having a made from dark, microblasted titanium as well as from its dial, which puts a modern spin on the classic Zenith chronograph . Its grey subdials and tachymeter scale are close in hue to the color (depending on the light shined on the case), and when contrasted with the matte black background of the dial, they make for what I think is a kind of muted panda effect. This is reinforced by the white chronograph seconds and subdial hands, as well as by the bright white lume plots. It’s stealthy in the best possible way, but also plenty legible, and though I can’t recall being much drawn to blacked-out in the past, this one does do it for me. And oh, one important carryover from the prototype that I’m sure many reading this are sure to love: No date window!
