As for the ZENO-WATCH Air Force collection, a clean, straightforward design was the main focus, regardless of current fads and fashions. This watch collection was also developed on the same core principles of supreme functionality, precision and user friendliness – These truly unusual watches from the Big Star collection are designed to be worn by strong men.
Just as André-Charles Eigeldinger did back in 1922 upon producing the first ZENO watches, ZENO watchmakers today continue the tradition of making mechanical timepieces with designs that stand the test of time – XXXL in size, design and character.
The GIANT CHRONOGRAPH comes in a massive 50mm case in stainless steel with easy-grip special crown, slightly domed hardened mineral glass and high contrast pilot-style dial. The watch houses a Valjoux 7750 mechanical self-winding movement.
