With this limited edition, ZENITH celebrates 1955, a year of utter success for ZENITH. All of the aesthetics of the 50s was reinvented to create this mythical and timeless piece. A redesigned rose gold case in contrast with the smooth grey dial, Delta indexes and a convex glass, assembled with nostalgia in order to obtain a perfect equilibrium.
ZENITH thus pays homage to a historical model by the Manufacture. In fact, the old version housed a 135 calibre, a manual movement chronometer, one of the best known in the history of watchmaking. For 5 years in a row (from 1950 to 1955) this movement was awarded the prize by the Neuchatel Chronometry Observer.
