Named “the best movement of the year” in 1994, the Elite calibre which powers the timepieces within the iconic Elite collection by Zenith, is beautifully manufactured and expertly designed to provide unbeatable precision no matter what the day has in store. Zenith Elite watches are renowned for their ultra slim dimensions and their movement’s impressive 100 hour power reserve. What’s more, these timepieces are elegant dress watches, perfect for pairing with a favourite evening ensemble or for combining with professional attire if needing to smarten up for an important work’s occasion.
Some of the top models of the collection feature a tourbillon to help with enhancing accuracy. Many are also adorned in exquisite 18ct golden finishes to communicate a strong sense of luxury when dressed upon the wrist. The Calibre Elite 6150 is a beautifully compact movement, designed especially to fit inside the slimline cases of the Zenith Elite watches. The meticulously decorated finishes and strategically placed components of this movement can be admired through a sapphire-backed case. This special material is incredibly hard and durable. Integrated with scratch resistant and anti reflective properties, the glass grants a perfectly clear view into the front and back of the watch whilst retaining a “good as new” look for many years, thanks to its special scratch resistant technology.
Some of the lady’s watches from the Elite collection are adorned in lavish diamonds to accentuate femininity and a desirable touch of glamour. The rest of the designs from the collection are classic dress watches that feature simple aesthetics infused with retro touches. Thanks to its flat construction the Elite calibre from Zenith’s portfolio of exclusive movements is an important staple. It marks a time in history where the mechanical watch was once more becoming popular again after battery powered quartz watches took over the marked in the 1970’s and 80’s.
The dial of a Zenith Elite watch is incredibly clean and minimalist. It is this characteristic that gives these classic watches a modern charm. The surfaces of the dials are smooth, almost silk-like. Completed on a variety of authentic black leather straps or polished stainless steel link bracelets – the wearer can choose between the two. Some of the hour tracks are represented in traditional Roman numeral indexes, whilst others are of the baton type. A small second dial in some designs promotes time reading at its simplest. With more space donated to the hour and minute hand, the wearer can extract information from the dial at a quick glance. Of course, the dial of each Elite watch is emblazoned with the iconic “Zenith” logo and the star motif that has represented the company since its birth in 1865.
