Zenith ELITE Moonphase
True to its name, the collection is powered by Zenith’s automatic manufacture movement, the Elite. Whether it’s simply displaying the time and date or hosting complications such as the moon phase, the Elite calibre provides superlative precision with the practicality of automatic winding.
The quintessential automatic movement, the Elite in-house manufactured and developed calibre has been a part of Zenith’s offerings for over 25 years. Ultra-thin in its proportions and irreproachable in its performance, the Elite provides a power reserve of 50 hours with its automatic winding mechanism, and can host a number of complications.
Cal. 692 has the moonphase, and small seconds at 9:00, while Elite cal. 670 SK has a center seconds and date. The SK version of the caliber 670 has a silicon lever and escape wheel, and they all run at 28,800 vph, with a 48 hour power reserve.
Zenith’s Elite Classic range, the dress watch representative of the brand, was taken to the operating room for some cosmetic surgery and a new Elite Moonphase model for men was introduced. Flaunting sunburst dials and restyled cases for a more contemporary look, let’s take a closer look at the two new Zenith Elite Moonphase 40.5mm.
Zenith uses dauphine style hours and minutes hands, and accompanied with the tapered elongated hours indices reminds us of Vacheron’s Patrimony and Traditionelle. The Elite Moonphase displays the moonphase at 6. A midnight blue circle on the lower half of the sunburst pattern dial takes on the same tone as the moonphase disc.
Through two models available in two sizes and a number of case and dial combinations, the Elite Classic and Moonphase models set the tone for Zenith’s vision of contemporary elegance.
