In 1865, a watch manufacturing company was made called Zenith. Since then, it has progressed positively into what it’s right now, which is a Swiss watch company that offers excellent and legendary luxury watches. Here are a few of Zenith’s most iconic watches of today.
Zenith Chronomaster Revival El Primero A385
From the Chronomaster collection of Zenith, the Zenith Chronomaster Revival El Primero A385 is a timeless beauty that fits a person with a vintage taste of a luxury watch. This particular model right here is based on the first gradient dial that was made in the year 1969, and it’s an original revival from the 1969 A385, plus an original 1969 37mm body case.
The vignette effect of its dial creates a very vintage vibe to the overall design of the Zenith Chronomaster Revival El Primero A385. Furthermore, they paired it with a premium light brown calfskin, which produces a luxurious classic feel. If you have an old soul within you, this watch will perfectly fit you.
Like other Zenith watches, it uses the same El Primero movement, which comprises 278 components with a frequency of 36,000vph and a power reserve of up to 50 hours. You’ll also get to see a central chronograph hand, a 30 minute counter located at 3 o’clock, 12 hour counter on its 6, a tachymetric scale, and lastly, a date indicator.
Sometimes, simple materials are essential compared to expensive ones. It adds so much cost, which is why the Zenith Chronomaster Revival El Primero A385 uses only stainless steel for its case. Despite having a stainless steel case, it’s still very durable, and as a result, it has a water resistance of 5 ATM.
Zenith Defy Classic Carbon 41MM
It is said to be the automatic skeleton luxury watch of the 21st century, and indeed it is. The Zenith Defy Classic Carbon 41mm is the first all-carbon bracelet, which makes it very light and, at the same time, very durable. This awesome looking luxury watch just weighs not more than 70 grams, defeating most of the luxury watches in its segment.
It has an in-house elite skeleton movement, and it offers a unique silicon escape-wheel, plus a very fancy looking lever. The Zenith Defy Classic Carbon 41mm is just outstanding in every angle. As mentioned, it uses an Elite movement that has 187 components and produces a whopping 28,000vph or 4 Hz of frequency. It also has a reasonably average of 50 hours of power.
Aside from the skeletonized carbon dial, you’ll also get a date indicator at 6 o’clock, hours and minutes at the center, and a central seconds hand. The material used in its case is carbon, which is not your typical carbon since it can sustain 10 ATMs of water resistance. Unfortunately, there is only one available strap option, which is a black carbon bracelet.
Just to add, the second, minute and hour hands of the Zenith Defy Classic Carbon 41mm are black ruthenium-plated and coated with Superluminova. A heavy-duty domed sapphire glass crystal protects it with a special anti-reflective coating.
Zenith Pilot Type 20 Blueprint 45MM “Limited Edition.”
A luxury watch for people who love to fly high, the Zenith Pilot Type 20 Blueprint 45mm is a tribute to its legendary aviation watches in the past. This watch might look vintage, but it’s a new Zenith model that belongs to its Pilot collection. If you want one, then don’t waste any more time since only 250 pieces have been made.
This limited-edition timepiece has a unique dial to it. If you look closer at its dial, you’ll see the blueprint or production plan on how they’ve made its dial, which is something that a famous luxury watch manufacturer doesn’t usually share with anyone.
Like the Defy Classic Carbon 41mm, the Pilot Type 20 Blueprint Limited Edition uses the same Elite movement with 126 components that produce a frequency of 28,800vph or 4 Hz. It also provides a fairly enough power reserve. Aside from its stunning dial and enormous crown, you’ll also get a sword like a second, minute, and hour hands.
The exquisite blue dial and blue leather straps also fit perfectly to the Pilot Type 20 Blueprint 45mm Limited Edition’s stainless steel body case. The case also provides an impressive 10 ATM of water resistance. Overall, Zenith did an excellent job of making this state of the art luxury watch.
Here’s a verdict for you about Zenith’s luxury watches. If you like the architectural dial design of the Pilot Type 20, then there’s no need to hesitate. But if you have an old soul within you, the Chronomaster Revival El Primero A385 is the one for you. However, the Defy Classic Carbon combines both modern design and vintage design in one watch.
