With innovation as its guiding star, Zenith features exceptional in-house developed and manufactured movements in all its watches. Zenith has been shaping the future of Swiss watchmaking since 1865, accompanying those who dare to challenge themselves . The Zenith Elite Classic Chronograph combines the functionality and style of a great watchmaking classic. Zenith opted for a traditional chronograph with two registers, no date, offering a perfect and pleasing symmetry.
The Elite line is Zenith’s slimmer, dressier offering, and with the 6150’s more-than-100-hour power reserve, it’s almost guaranteed to be an enduring benchmark. The new Elite 6150 comes in a 42 mm stainless-steel case – a size that replica Zenith watch plans to make standard for the line .
Created in 1865, Zenith watches has won over 2,000 chronometry prizes for their superbly reliable watchmaking prowess. Yet, here in the United States, they’re a relatively unknown brand for one simple fact: they were overshadowed by a separate, unrelated technology brand of the same name. That being said, any true horological fan can tell you that they’re a brand to be respected and admired, especially after Jean-Claude Biver — the Swiss watchmaking industry’s closest analog to Steve Jobs — took the helm. Today, they’ve become a bit more well-known — which is likely thanks to their PILOT Type 20 watches, like the one you see above. With all the hallmarks of an excellent pilot’s watch, these timepieces still manage to stand out against the pack, especially those that are equipped with that unique oversized crown. And with 23 different options across five available variants, there’s one for everyone.
