Limited to 250 pieces, the timepiece features a sapphire crystal engraved with the famous Rolling Stones tongue. Engraved with ‘The Rolling Stones Edition’ on the case-back, it reveals the El Primero 4061 movement that beats at a frequency of ten vibrations per second, timing to one tenth of a second.

“Disruptive thinking gave birth, in the ’60s, to the first (El Primero) chronograph movement timing to one tenth of a second. The same ‘outside-the-box’ thinking gave birth to the new blues and rock ‘n’ roll music. Both Zenith and The Rolling Stones are living legends today. No wonder they are now teaming up,” says Biver.
