Zenith Captain Dual Time, status of commander

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Captain: the very name calls up flights of fancy! It evokes long-distance travel, untamed seas, but also the fabulous fortunes made trading in distant outposts. The status of captain was, in the past, reserved for officers who commanded a royal vessel. Nothing of the art and skill of navigation at sea could remain a mystery to the man who aspired to this position. Captain is also a collection that embodies the highest expression of Zenith’s watchmaking heritage. It encompasses an expertise that, like navigation at sea, is passed on from one generation of watchmaker to the next within the Locle Manufacture. The new collection is enriched with three models with complications: power reserve, moonphase and second time zone.
The three new models are inspired by the Captain line created in 1952, a leading collection of Zenith automatic watches. The 2011 collection holds true to the course of the original models. All the expertise of watchmaking– technique, chronometric performance, and aesthetics – is integrated into these three creations that make clear allusions to historic timepieces, with dauphine hands, facetted with rhodium-plating and long markers that are hand-set. The case is enlarged to its present-day size of 40 mm. The development of this collection has been led by technical and chronometric achievement – just as it was 50 years ago. Equipped with Elite calibers, the models of the new generation benefit from an additional half-century of watchmaking experience. The manufactured movements, decorated with Côtes de Genève and circular-graining are visible through a sapphire case back.

Captain Dual Time – Let us leave the oceans for a moment to explore navigation in the air. Watches equipped with the GMT function are the direct descendants of the conquest of the skies. In 1955, Zenith presented a multi-time-zone watch intended for air pilots; this model was inspired by Zenith’s aerial navigation instruments that had been integrated into the dashboards of cockpits since 1920. The Captain Dual Time model is equipped with a GMT hand with a different design, with a blue pointer that ensures optimal readability. This hand is set using a push-piece at 10 o’clock. This mechanism makes it possible to adjust the second time zone with a simple gesture, without risking the deregulation of the time on the watch. The Captain Dual Time is available in two versions with a silver or black “Clou de Paris” guilloché dial, in a steel case, with a metal bracelet or alligator-skin strap.

Zenith El Primero Chronomaster Open Power Reserve, magic perfection

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

The Chronomaster Open model leaves no-one indifferent. The open dial – a Zenith creation – lets one see into the perfectly synchronized pulsations and the magic of the mechanism in what is today unanimously considered as the “best serial movement in the world” for its performance and its chronometric reliability. Its secret lies in its number of vibrations, which is 25% higher than in other movements on the market. Whereas other timepieces make 8 vibrations per second, the El Primero caliber makes 10 in the same time. Over and above the aesthetic success of this open-heart operation – the Open concept is the realization of technical prowess: to make the regulating organ visible, it has been moved to 10 o’clock, on the edge of the movement.
The great watchmaking tradition – Everything here evokes the great tradition of watchmaking: a column-wheel chronograph mechanism; a power reserve indicator; a rhodium-plated plate, circular-graining and chamfered bridges; strokes drawn on the hammers, levers and conveyors; oscillating weight with “Côtes de Genève” guilloché work; revelation of the Zenith star through skeleton work and tachometric scale on the flanges that harks back to the chronographs used in the first automobile races. One can only admire the attention to detail.
Aesthetic daring – The Chronomaster Open displays an avant-garde design with highly finished features. This aspect is important in the choice of a watch, one of the only pieces of jewelry worn by men, an accessory that identifies and highlights his personality. Zenith communicates the image of a highly technical brand that is intended for connoisseurs of high-precision watchmaking.
Variations – Using the design codes of the past to interpret contemporary models, the Chronomaster Open is based on a century and a half of watchmaking expertise. The Open model exists in four different versions: a silver or black sun-burst dial in a steel case or silver sun-burst dial in an 18-carat rose gold case or in a rose gold and steel case. The markers and the three hands for the hours, minutes and small seconds are facetted, rhodium-plated, and hand-set. The central hand of the chronograph, the hand for the 30-minute counter and for the power reserve have a blued finish. The curve of the hands that decorate the dial is executed with precise handwork. The Chronomaster Open model belongs to Zenith’s “Iconic” family.
