Known for pushing the boundaries on precision, the Zenith brand continues in this realm with the Zenith Academy Christophe Colomb Hurricane Watch. The heart of the brands precision is brought to fruition with the El Primero movement, beating at the frequency of 36,000 vibrations per hour, and then supported by the invention of the gravity control system.
Combining both of these watch-making inventions on this new piece, not only do you have a guarantee of absolute precision, but the brand added a third enhancement, based on suppression of isochronism. The system delivers constant force, which results in carefully established amplitude during the entire running time.
Watch lovers familiar with the brand and the collection are excited about the new design, and the loyalty of the reputation. Many have asked is this model a true tourbillon? While a tourbillon revolves around its own axis, there are many watches that carry the name but in truth are not tourbillons. In the case of this new Zenith Academy Christophe Colomb Hurricane, the escapement is located in a cage, and stays upright due to the weight on it. When the wearer moves, or turns the watch, the escapement moves, a very complicated feature that has been technically created in masterful craftsmanship.
Another very unique feature on this piece is the protruding sapphire crystal, visible on the dial as well as the case back. This design feature was a result of the brand looking for space to house the escapement, so it could move around in the case. In looking at the watch you might draw the conclusion that the bubble on the case back would be uncomfortable to the wrist, when in fact it is not at all, everyone seems to find it very easy to wear.
The Zenith Academy Christophe Colomb Hurricane does stay true to the brand, delivering quality, reliability, precision, and style. The case is designed with 45mm diameter in rose gold. The brand El Primero caliber 8805 provides the power to the watch, and it is manually wound. The timepiece contains 1112 parts, making it one of the most complicated watches in creation.
The brand is not afraid to point out the escapement mechanism is not a tourbillon, but still a mechanism that stands for precision and quality. The fusee and chain assembly are remarkable mechanisms, and the brand has exceptional features as well as a perfect visual balance. All watches for sale in this collection maintain the quality that the brand is respected for.
Detailed brilliance and beauty are one aspect of the brand, in addition to fair and affordable pricing on these watches for sale. All the collections contain in-house movements that are masterfully crafted and designed for pleasure and precision. This model is being manufactured with limited edition quantities, just 25 pieces, mainly due to the time involved to craft the piece, as well as the pricing that will be required.
