Zenith Starissime Magic Numbers & Magic Letters ELITE

ZENITH Manufacture has created a collection of Haute Couture-style customisable watches because nothing is too beautiful for the divine divas of our hearts. A birthday or meeting anniversary, the letter denoting the first name of the beloved or of a newborn – anything is possible. The black Tahiti mother-of-pearl inset with round diamonds can be decorated with a number from 1 to 99 or any initial.

And for those who prefer stars to symbols, ZENITH has designed a completely new piece with the aim of letting women who love time journey into the vastnesses of the heavenly vault. Whether we want to live the infinite time of the constellations or rather follow time at the speed of shooting stars, the new Comet watch leaves us with stars in our eyes every time. As you can see, these are no longer letters or numbers, this is a star and its starlight dust. It moves across the black mother-of-pearl dial as though immersed in the Milky Way.


Let us now leave the sparkling, elegant surface of these jewels and, through a star-shaped opening, enter the laciness of the entirely handmade mechanical movement. It is an Elite 68 caliber. At 9 o’clock, a star has stolen the limelight from the second-hand. In a minute, it will make a complete turn on itself. Signature of the range and symbol of the brand, another star formed of 5 diamonds is its counterpart at 1 o’clock. The 32 mm case – 39g of white gold – is set with 30 diamonds totalling 2.2 carats.
