In 2016, the Elite collection by Zenith appears in a distinctly feminine guise; yet elegance goes well beyond gender boundaries. While the recent Elite models can be admired on the wrists of men and women of discerning taste, the new Elite Lady Moon Phase embodies the essence of refined femininity according to Zenith. A subtle blend of understatement, flowing curves and perfectly mastered technical sophistication – all tinged with modernity – the Elite woman makes her grand entrance with an unmistakable air of classic distinction.
The new feminine face of the Elite collection sees this Moon Phase model convey its elegance through five variations made of 18K pink gold or stainless steel. The ultra-thin pebble-shaped 36mm-diameter case, water-resistant to 50 metres, is fitted with a fluted crown enabling smooth moon-phase adjustments. Its exhibition case-back provides a chance to admire its mechanism powered by an oscillating weight adorned with a ‘Côtes de Genève’ motif. Surrounded by a diamond-set or polished bezel, the pure mother-of-pearl dial is graced with a star-studded deep blue moon disc. Slender leaf-shaped hands sweep over stylised engraved hour-markers, or slim Roman numerals on one of the versions.
The heart of this new ladies watch beats to the rhythm of the automatic Elite Calibre 692, entirely developed and crafted by Zenith. Bestowed with a more than 50-hour power reserve, this ultra-thin movement operating at a frequency of 28 800 vibrations per hour and comprising 195 parts – measuring an exceptionally slim 3.97mm – powers indications of the hours, minutes, small seconds and moon phases,
Exquisitely feminine in every detail, the Elite Lady Moon Phase is fitted with a glossy black or brown rubber-lined alligator leather strap secured by a stainless steel or pink gold pin buckle. These five new Elite references embody ageless elegance entirely in tune with the times.
