My brother and I, we are both Zenith clients. We like the brand and it is the reason why we spend many hours at the pop-up boutique located on the Place Vendôme. We know that one day (it is expected to happen at the end of September) the boutique will close. Each opportunity is good to visit it.....Story

The new Zenith Defy range is currently evolving into a full-fledged collection. Only one year after its presentation at Baselworld 2017, Defy already has a technological marvel as its flagship: the new Defy Zero G with Zenith's proprietary gravity control module, here dramatically reduced to 30% of its original volume: it nicely fits between the two crystals of the 44mm case! Overall, the design follows the blueprint set with the Defy El Primero 21, making heavy use of boldly skeletonised bridges and the ... ...Story

Report of the Zenith x Bamford event at the boutique Place Vendôme in Paris

Every day, I think that we are very lucky to have this Zenith pop-up boutique in Paris. Why? Simply because the roadmap which was assigned to the Zenith France team is to organize a lot of events and to take advantage of each day spent inside. Let's take a recent example: Zenith organized an event last Wednesday in attendance of George Bamford himself and his colleague Simon. As you know, Bamford Watch Department became one year ago the "officialy authorized customizer" for Zenith and the aim of the event .....Story

Let's start, there is a lot in Zenith's (current or more recent) stable. First, there is the Elite collection , with this wonderful purple automatic Elite ith a subtle diamond encircled case in 34 mm: Why not go the full monty (and a tad larger) with this pure carbon Zenith Elite, 36mm of diamond-encrusted heaven (altogether ~3.50 cts, distribute on case (167 VVS brilliant-cut diamonds), bezel (64 VVS brilliant-cut diamonds) and dial (680 VVS brilliant-cut diamonds).

Geneva Week 2018: Interview with Zenith CEO Julien Tornare and Jean-Claude Biver on Zenith's Future, and the Challenges of Implementing Innovation!

Avatar
Ornatus-Mundi
Since about the last 12 months Zenith seems changed forever. The former CEO, Aldo Magada, is out, with Jean-Claude Biver as Head of the Watch Division at LVMH taking over direct control, later joined by Julien Tornare , ex-Vacheron Constantin, as new CEO. The swaps at the top had immediate consequences for the brand: JCB developed a vision that set the somewhat stagnant brand onto a forward-looking path following the ‘tradition of innovation’ , a moniker that means nothing less than a steadfast focus on chronometric ... ...Story

Geneva Watch Week 2018: New Zenith Pilot Cronometro Tipo CP-2: Flyback, bronze & aged steel, display back!

Avatar
Ornatus-Mundi
No wonder this model, based on the same as the 15th Anniversary piece of PuristSPro , is further developed: new movement (El Primero Cal. 405B) with Flyback function, new case materials (bronze and aged steel), a slate grey grained dail, and a display back : 1.) Bronze case (brown oily leather strap): 2.) Aged steel case (olive oily leather strap): Colours are not representative (somehow someone at Zenith rushed image processing, these are the most inconsistent set I have ever seen...)...
