Zenith has announced that it will launch the Elite 6150 model, a timepiece equipped with the firm’s new Manufacture movement.
The 42 mm watch will house Zenith’s new automatic Elite 6150 calibre, which is based upon an earlier movement developed in the 1990s. It contains a total of 195 parts, with 35 jewels and a frequency of 28,000 vibrations per hour.
Through the use of the twin barrel movement, the Elite 6150 model achieves a minimum power reserve of approximately 100 hours. Whilst, the timepiece will feature hour, minute and central seconds functions.
Its case, produced in stainless steel, boasts domed sapphire crystal with anti-reflective treatment on both sides. The caseback is transparent, allowing the wearer to observe the very inner workings of the mechanism in motion, along with its oscillating weight that is adorned with a Côtes de Genève motif.
It is complemented by a simplistic silver-toned dial and black alligator leather strap with protective rubber lining and steel triple-blade folding clasp.
The Elite 6150 is water resistant up to a pressure of 3 bar, it has been confirmed. For the layman, that’s the equivalent of 30 meters or 100 feet.
