Baselworld 2015: Zenith pays tribute to Christopher Columbus

The Swiss watchmaker is celebrating its 150th anniversary in style by unveiling the Academy Christophe Colomb Hurricane Grand Voyage II, a timepiece combining technical prowess with artistic mastery. This tribute to the legendary Italian explorer will be presented at Baselworld 2015, which opens March 19.

After introducing its first watch honoring Christopher Columbus in 2013, Zenith continues its homage to the historical figure with the Academy Christophe Colomb Hurricane Grand Voyage II.  This second model raises the bar even higher, both in terms of technical mastery and style, with three new mechanisms for enhanced precision and a true work of art on the case.

A miniature fresco

The back side of the watch is decorated with an impressive bas relief sculpture representing Christopher Columbus's voyage of 1492.  Attached to the movement through a gold appliqué system, this colorful miniature fresco features several references to the explorer's journey to the Americas.

Christopher Columbus carries the flag of the Spanish monarchy opposite two natives surrounded by palm trees and a parrot, while the Pinta, the Niña and the Santa Maria are seen on the horizon. Every detail is hand engraved and hand painted, making each piece unique.

Greater precision through technical expertise

This extraordinary artistic craftsmanship is complemented by Zenith's equally impressive technical mastery. The new timepiece offers mechanical elements calibrated for optimal precision, including a fusée and chain constant force mechanism and Zenith's patented Gravity Control system, which counters the effects of the Earth's gravity to keep the escapement level at all times. There is also a power reserve indicator for the hand-wound movement, which has a reserve of up to 50 hours.

Produced in a limited edition of just 10 units, the new watch comes in a luxurious mahogany box.
