Zenith’s repertoire of men’s watches encompasses a full range of in-house developed complications. From the simplest designs to some of the most complex, each one is entirely developed and produced within Zenith’s manufacturing facilities. This allows for the Swiss company to tailor their designs specifically to what a gentleman wants in a refined wristwatch. Design, aesthetics, performance and reliability are all key factors which need to be considered thoroughly and then balanced beautifully before a true Zenith watch comes to life. Our collection of men’s Zenith watches here at Owen & Robinson, are testament to the company’s exploration and advancement. The calibres share the common denominator of impressive chronometric performance, yet have all been given a unique housing crafted from a blend of premium materials, impressive water resistance and beautiful bold constructions.
A man’s watch needs to be sleek enough to wear whilst socialising after work, smart enough to attend an important business meeting and comfortable enough to wear whilst travelling. Striking that balance just right is a task in itself, yet Zenith’s team of artisans, skilled technicians and designers bring these core elements together with effortlessness. Designs from the El Primero collection feature chronographs dressed in striking colours to enhance their visibility against openwork dials or sleek silver backdrops. The Zenith Chronomaster El Primero 38mm Automatic Chronograph watch with an 18ct rose gold bezel and brown leather strap, is a striking timepiece for those gentlemen who always want to look their best no matter what the occasion. The timepiece is clothed in luxurious silver tones punctuated by anthracite, black and deep blue chronograph counters with elegant rose gold coloured baton hour indexes. A minute track is presented in a sumptuous black band which paroles the outside of the dial. Additional features like a tachymeter scale and date aperture add technical appeal to a watch that can also be enjoyed at the weekend with a pair of jeans or to an indulgent night at the casino.
Zenith Elite watches take on a simpler look with classic three handed dials dominating this collection. Smooth dial surfaces, slender central hands and clear, beautifully spaced hour indexes promote a relaxed approach to timekeeping. Some of the designs feature an off-centre small seconds dial accompanied by traditional Roman numeral indexes or crisp triangular markers. Accompanied by a smart black leather strap, many of the men’s Zenith watches from this collection are great for wearing alongside a smart dinner jacket – their perfectly round polished bezels and flowing lugs adding a classic charm to the wrist.
Zenith Pilot watches for men are equipped with oily nuback straps and unusual coloured dials to really make a statement when dressed to the wrist with smart or casual attire. Large Arabic numerals and central hands filled with luminescent technology enable the gentleman to read the time at night or in light-limiting conditions – a quality that graced even the earliest instruments created by Zenith for pilots and aviation enthusiasts. Many of the designs are crafted from a bonze cage to give the timepiece an aged look. Combined with the enlarged crown for operating through pilot gloves and a rotatable bezel adorned with a triangular marker - these vintage inspired timepieces celebrate cutting edge timekeeping technology infused with beautiful retro touches that are sure to be loved by those with an interest in aviation as well as those who collect Zenith watches.
