Just 3.87 thick!Ultra-thin: The Zenith Star Moonphase
Since 1865, Zenith has also been dedicating its legend to women. From the first enamelled pocket watches to jewellery pendant watches along with complicated wristwatches, its creations are an anthem to elegance and to the watchmaking art. And history is merely a prologue, as the new Zenith Star eloquently testifies.
There appears to be no stopping the mechanical automatic ultra-thin Zenith Elite 692 movement, housed in this instance within the remarkable cushion-shaped case of the Zenith Star Moonphase model. The epitome of slenderness at just 3.87 thick, it comprises 195 parts, beats at a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour and drives a display of the over 50-hour power reserve. It highlights a superb mechanical movement by endowing it with a technical and aesthetic dimension. The stage is superbly set for the hours, minutes, small seconds and moon phase appearing on the silver-toned dial. The latter marks off the hours and minutes on blue Roman numerals matching the deep blue shade of the exquisite cabochon-cut sapphire set on the crown. This superbly modern and distinctively elegant model gives pride of place to the functions: the small seconds indication at 9 o’clock, and the moon-phase display at 6 o’clock entirely dedicated to the path of the nocturnal luminary. On the back of the watch, a sapphire crystal reveals the intricate workings of a hand-decorated and engraved movement.
Offering a splendid expression of horological refinement, this watch comes in a choice of steel or rose gold set with 28 VVS brilliant-cut diamonds totalling approximately 0.17 carats, fitted with an alligator leather strap complete with triple folding clasp. Whichever the version, it consistently offers its wearer the pleasure of reading off a time that is truly unique.
