The word “Zenith” is defined as the highest point reached by a celestial or other object, or the highest point above the observer’s horizon attained by a celestial body. The name is a perfect match for the new watches from the Zenith manufacturer.
The brand now introduces two wristwatches that are the perfect ladylike combination of diamonds and complications: The Zenith Star Open & the Zenith Star Moonphase.
The Zenith Star Open honors its mechanical automatic movement, called El Primero Calibre 4062, with a window at the 10:30 position that displays the very core of the movement. You can actually see the heart of the watch beating. This window is overlapped by the small seconds sub-dial and together they create a heart-shaped double display. There is also a 30-minute counter at the 3 o’clock position that provides a beautiful balance. The dial is in mother-of-pearl and features blue Roman numerals and faceted rhodium hands. There is also a blue cabochon-cut sapphire on the crown. The movement is also visible through a sapphire case back. There is a steel version of this watch with 28 VVS brilliant-cut diamonds, a rose gold version with 63 VVS brilliant-cut diamonds, and a rose gold version with 263 VVS brilliant-cut diamonds. All versions have an alligator leather strap and a triple folding clasp.
The Zenith Star Moonphase features the mechanical automatic ultra-thin Zenith Elite 692 movement that is placed inside an impressive cushion-shaped case that is only 3.87 thick. The movement has 195 parts, runs at a frequency of 28,800 vibrations and has a power reserve of more than 50 hours. There is a small seconds-counter at the 9 o’clock position and the silver tone dial has Roman hour markers in the same blue shade as the cabochon-cut sapphire set on the crown. The moon-phase display is located at the 6 o’clock position and it details the entire path of earth’s satellite. The caseback has a sapphire crystal showcasing the wonderful movement that has been hand-decorated and engraved. The watch is offered in steel or rose gold with 28 VVS brilliant-cut diamonds and an alligator leather strap complete with a triple folding clasp.
