Zenith Star Moonphase
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.
