The purest extension of Zenith’s watchmaking heritage
Captain: the name conjures up dreams. Of long voyages, hazards and the profits from deals at far-flung trading posts… Use of the title is strictly reserved, however; the officer applying for the position is questioned by its former holders. Nothing of the art and the techniques of navigating at sea and accurately drawing the route must escape the one who-if he succeeds- will be appointed Captain. In times gone by, the title was use only for officers commanding a vessel of the king. Captain is also a collection that embodies the finest expression of Zenith watchmaking heritage.
Expertise that-as with that of navigating the seas- is passed from watchmaker to watchmaker within the precincts of the Manifacture at Le Locle.
This prestigious collection is inspired by a former line created by ZENITH in the mid 1960s. All the watchmaker’s skills – technique, precision, and artwork – are incorporated into this construction. Within its Dauphin-style hands and long indexes, in both cases fluted, the Captain harks back unmistakably to vintage timepieces. These outstanding elements takes on the emblematic character of ZENITH chronographs made in about the middle of the last century. In homage to the original model, the Captain collection picks up both the spirit and the aestheticism again. A thoroughbred, the chronograph had two large push-pieces on the side. Just as it did fifty years ago, technical and chronometric achievement governed the development of this collection. The new generation technically surpasses past ones by incorporating a high-performance COSC-certified movement, the legendary El Primero caliber designed in 1969. The movement, with “Cotes de Geneve” decoration, is visible through a sapphire case-back. On the other face, the silver sunray dial is surmounted by gold-plated faceted rhodium hands and indexes. The date window is positioned at 6 o’clock. Three chronograph subdials are arranged in a V at the center, on the lower part of the dial. The Captain line combines simplicity with a strong identity. It expresses both a very masculine retro elegance and highly technical complexity. A watch of the high seas – a Captain’s watch.
