ZENITH - CAPTAIN WINSOR ANNUAL CALENDAR BOUTIQUE EDITION
The new Zenith chronograph, developed in partnership with the Musée International d’Horlogerie, returns in an original version available exclusively through the Zenith boutiques: The Captain Winsor Annual Calendar "Boutique Edition"
Last year, Zenith introduced the Captain Winsor Annual Calendar watch. Conservative in its design, it was a masculine every-man timpiece with timeless appeal. Functionally, the Captain Winsor included two desirable complications that watch lovers are drawn to: Chronograph and annual calendar
Not just any chronograph, but one the legendary high-beat El Primero movement.
LENDING AN EXCLUSIVE TOUCH TO ZENITH BOUTIQUES
The first Captain annual calendar chronograph, developed in partnership with the Musée International d’Horlogerie, returns in an original version available exclusively through the Zenith boutique network. New Arabic numerals grace a revisited matt white dial for the rose gold version, or a face featuring graded silver and palladium-toned shades for the stainless steel model. Devotees of horological complications will appreciate the rare nature of these creations, confirmed by the inscription "Captain – special edition" engraved on the case-back. This unique exterior houses the legendary El Primero movement, staging a meaningful encounter between high frequency and the annual calendar mechanism. A daring watch for a mechanism imbued with authenticity and expertise that expresses inherent complexity in a delightfully simple manner.
CAPTAIN, SPECIAL EDITION
Stemming from fruitful cooperation between the Musée International d’Horlogerie and the Manufacture Zenith, the Captain Winsor Annual Calendar Boutique Edition combines the most precise series-produced calibre with a complication that is both useful and innovative: The annual calendar.
The creative mind behind it is none other than the curator of the Musée International d’Horlogerie in La Chaux-de-Fonds, Ludwig Oeschlin. This passionate enthusiast has designed an annual calendar displaying the day of the week, the date and the month, while requiring only one annual adjustment. This complication is intended to be more accessible than the perpetual calendar for a large number of chronograph lovers. In order to ensure excellent readability, this display is provided by three concentric discs. The outer disc indicates the date, the middle one the month, while the innermost disc shows the day of the week. The mechanism is both simple and complex: for 31-day months, the date disc moves the month disc forward, while for 30-day months, the month disc makes the date disc "skip" the 31st. Only the transition from February to March requires manual adjustment. Based on a clever and elegantly restrained construction, this complication comprises just nine mobile elements, whereas most calendars require between 30 and 40.
The mechanism powering this chronograph represents the ultimate expression of Zenith’s horlogical expertise: the high-precision El Primero movement, which has been produced within the Manufacture for over 40 years. El Primero is the only series-made movement to beat at a frequency of 36,000 vibrations per hour, meaning a rate of one beat every tenth of a second. The Captain Winsor Annual Calendar Boutique Edition houses the automatic El Primero Calibre 4054. This in-house movement, circular-grained and adorned with Côtes de Genève, is visible through the sapphire crystal case-back, itself surrounded by the engraved inscription "Captain – special edition".
