1. Tell us some of the most exciting developments at Zenith today?
Since June 2009, ZENITH under the leadership of Jean-Frederic Dufour, President and CEO, has enjoyed a complete revamping of its creations. The international commercial success that we enjoyed since is definitely encouraging all our the future developments. During the Basel fair 2012, we will launch a very exciting new line of watches for man I can’t tell you now, sorry…
2. What watch do you wear daily?
I am wearing during the week the Rose Gold Open Chronomaster El-Primero and on weekend I am wearing the Alchron Stratos Striking 10th Flyback.
Without a doubt, The Rose Gold Christophe Colomb Equation of Time. The piece just won the Geneva Watchmaking Grand Prix for Best Complicated watch of the year.
As ZENITH is a fully integrated manufacture, we produce our movement in all our models. But the most iconicmovement is for sure the famous El Primero movement . All our Chronograph watches are incased with the El-Primero since 1969. We added since then several additional complication to the original chronograph function such as an Annual Calendar, a flyback a Split Second, a Striking 10th, a Perpetual Calendar, a Tourbillon or a Minute Repeater. El Primero was the first high frequency (5 Hz or 36,000 VpH) chronograph automatic movement fully integrated ever.
