Another Swiss sensation from Zenith

Hold your breath. For this is a timeless wonder. Cynosure of an aesthete! This year, the renowned watch manufacturers from Switzerland, Zenith, offers Academy Minute Repeater, a 25-piece limited-edition marvel. The Academy collection is the expression of a quintessential mechanical perfection, mastering aesthetic details and the integrity of a consistent craftsmanship. This Academy Minute Repeater strikes the hours, quarter hours and minutes once the dedicated repeater slide has been activated. The case is 45mm wide in 18k rose gold and it is almost 17mm thick. The dial is engraved with silvered guilloche with 18k rose gold hands and Roman numeral hour markers. The minute repeaters are visible hammer and gong displays on the dial preserving legibility for both the time and chronograph functions. The Switzerland-based Zenith remains one of the few manufacturers capable of producing all parts of its watches. It developed, in 1969, a high-frequency automatic integrated column-wheel chronograph powered by the legendary El Primero movement.  Resting on a tradition of quality, Zenith also produces three of the most important mechanical movements of the luxury watch industry — the automatic integrated chronograph El Primero, the mechanical ultra-slim Elite movement, and the hand-wound 22-line 5011 K movement.
