Spectacular technical sophistication and precision, matched by eminently contemporary aesthetics and materials: the Academy Georges Favre-Jacot Titanium is a concentrated blend of manufacturing expertise and visionary spirit – two fundamental qualities nurtured by the brand with the guiding star for 150 years. 797 components drive this legendary heart beating at a frequency of 36,000 vibrations/hour and fitted with a fusée and chain transmission system ensuring constant force. In tribute to the founder of Zenith, a pioneer of the modern watchmaking industry, this COSC-certified timepiece heralds the future of the Maison, solidly built on a century and a half of expertise and innovation bearing its inimitable signature.

2015 is an undeniably festive year for Zenith, since the Manufacture is celebrating 150 years of existence: a century and a half of watchmaking history driven by expertise and daring. An ideal opportunity for the brand with the guiding star to demonstrate its creativity and innovation through an exceptional series of timepieces dedicated to the visionary spirit of its founder, Georges Favre-Jacot. Firmly embedded in the Zenith DNA, that same daring attitude that led the 22 year-old entrepreneur from Le Locle to create one of the first industrial watch Manufactures, is fully expressed in the new Academy Georges Favre-Jacot Titanium 150-piece limited edition. A perfect blend of technical sophistication and contemporary attributes, this exclusive timepiece beats to the super-fast rhythm imparted by an in-house ‘engine’ whose legendary name and impressive chronometric performance went down in history in 1969: El Primero Calibre 4810. Faithfully reflecting its illustrious lineage reputed for peerless precision, this hand-wound movement chronometer-certified by the COSC beats at the extremely swift cadence of 36,000 vibrations per hour. In addition, this compendium of horological expertise bearing the Zenith signature also features a spectacular fusée and chain transmission system linked to the barrel and guaranteeing constant force, while its resolutely modern exterior showcases an aesthetic approach firmly geared towards the future of the brand.
