The brand with the star has its origins in the will of his creator, Georges Favre Jacot, to transcend the watch making expertise, and reach heights of sophistication, it went where no man has ever gone before, the aim zenith.
Today, the brand remains true to its history, we will tell you very soon, that continues to innovate; especially with the watch making Academy Columbus Hurricane that combines two great innovations signed Zenith El Primero movement a beating at the exceptional frequency of 36,000 vibrations per hour, and a Zenith patented gyroscope unit, Gravity Control, the ultimate evolution marine chronometer. These two guarantors of absolute precision add a system of rocket-channel transmission that allows the removal of the isochronous and you get a gem of watch making technology.
This watch comes the ranks of the great Christopher Columbus collection and impressed the whole world with the watch with top 45 mm.
The starting point is the following: the very fact that keeping the regulating part in a horizontal position causes the amplitude of the balance better and therefore provides best time accuracy; Zenith designed has built the famous self-regulating gyroscopic module so that the regulating part and the balance are always kept permanently in that position.
This design therefore solves the triple equation that arises for a wristwatch: the high frequency oscillation for sequencing the time for better accuracy, neutralizing the effects of gravity, and the elimination of variations isochronous (the loss of isochronism, is the fact that the oscillations of the regulating part to differentiate as the watch runs down, while they are expected to remain constant).
The origins of this technology, features an inspiration and a tribute to both marine chronometers produced by Zenith, and which we borrowed the principle of suspension dial, which could correct the errors in caused by the movement of the boat. Too big for a pocket watch, this system was abandoned in favor of the vortex. Surpass this technique by giving the watch a constant horizontal exhaust: this was the challenge perfectly realized with this Zenith watch. And complexity is pushed to its climax on this caliber, with a beat with exceptional frequency 36,000 vibrations per hour.
The prize at the Grand Prix d’Horlogerie in Geneva in 2011 category complicated watches gyroscopic module has necessitated the development of novel components, and not less than sixty new tools. The number of these miniature items which must then patiently assembled is impressive, since the only sphere consists of 175 components.
Manufacture Zenith prides itself on being the only one who master this technique and was proud of this achievement, is the result of a very good agreement between the trades and disputes workshops; but also an exemplary experience on which we will be happy to come back very soon.
The digital side
It is a pleasure to see more information about this horological marvel at the new Zenith Watch site that recently made a new start.
Values and know-how of the brand returned to the heart of the site that was redesigned before the Basel fair, because those are the ones that have generated the enthusiasm of an ever growing audience. At the same time a good communication campaign came corroborate relevant and easy positioning.
Audacity authenticity and fun
The stated goal of this campaign suggests the highest level of expertise and with the brand that makes millions of enthusiasts dream come true. Zenith was found in 1865 and has always been innovative and know-how has become essential due to successes that have marked its history, this is what appears on this new site that showcases the haute horlogerie, the universe punctuate the life of Zenith, in connection with the sky, the sea … and unusual events that marked the spirit like no others, such as jumping Felix Baumgartner, who was then a special edition of Zenith.
The DNA of the brand now clearly claimed and in a beautiful way, with a nice clear navigation makes the site more than ever want to stroll on the site, or to discover new information and history of Zenith, as you could be told better than ever.
