Available in three limited editionsExtra-slim: The ZENITH Elite 681 Ultra Thin
This classically handsome model features a new ultra-thin 40 mm-diameter case housing the ideally suited extra-slim (3.81 mm) Elite 681 self-winding calibre, beating at 28’800 vibrations per hour (4 Hz) and ensuring a 50-hour power reserve. The case comes in a choice of 18-carat rose gold or stainless steel, while the sapphire crystal exhibition back provides a fascinating view of the movement with its tungsten oscillating weight adorned with a “Côtes de Genève” pattern.
The domed sapphire watch glass is glareproofed on both sides to enhance readability of the facetted hour-markers, sword-shaped hour and minutes hands as well as small seconds at 9 o’clock. This admirably restrained dial is available in silver, black, slate-grey sunray or white-lacquered versions, as well as three limited editions (brown sunray, silver sunray with diamond hour-markers and black sunray with diamond hour-markers).
Clearly drawing on the brand’s heritage of mechanical movements and pure, uncluttered designs, the Elite 681 Ultra Thin is fitted with a black or brown alligator strap that is rubber-lined to enhance wearer comfort and equipped with an 18-carat rose gold or stainless steel pin buckle. It provides eloquent confirmation that understated elegance and aesthetic purity are truly timeless values.
