Power reserve: 50 h, 36'000 variations / hours
The Captain Tourbillon unveils a rotating carriage that performs one rotation per minute and incorporates a small seconds hand. Classic by nature, this timepiece pays tribute to Zenith’s heritage by picking up the codes that have forged its identity: an automatic El Primero calibre, a frequency of 36,000 vibrations per hour, a 50-hour power reserve, and a dial generously revealing the movement.
Distinguished by understated lines forming a pure structure with alternating indexes and numerals, presided over by dauphine-style hands, the elegant, silver-toned dial boasts a velvet finish. Meanwhile a transparent sapphire crystal case-back provides a chance to admire the El Primero 4041 C movement, a miniature mechanical masterpiece equipped with 199 parts, a tourbillon beating at a high frequency.
The 40 mm case displays a particularly refined curve achieved by a double stamping operation
