It’s not often we see watch companies returning to the early- to mid-2000s era of watchmaking for inspiration. Although vintage reissues are a dime a dozen these days, watches typically don’t commemorate the early years of the 21st century, when enthusiasm for high-end mechanical watches was just beginning to expand beyond its ’90s status as … Read more

OK, so maybe at 78.2 grams as opposed to 2020’s steel watch at 110.6 grams, with a total weight savings of 32.4 grams, our latest collaboration is not the most featherweight timepiece in the world when compared, for example, to such horological exotica like the Richard Mille RM 027. But what I can say is that it is the lightest watch with a full metal bracelet that I’ve ever strapped on. And that is what is so cool about the Airweight Cover Girl. It looks like it would possess substantial heft on the wrist until you put it on, and you have a genuine “Oh shit, that’s light” moment, and that’s the very appealing dynamic contrast between how the watch looks and how it wears. This is probably aided considerably by the Gay Frères designed, ladder-style bracelet which, of course, omits every other traditional center link. This watch is also immediately distinguished from our 2020 Chronomaster Revival limited edition of 100 watches by the appearance of polished center links. Why did we do this? Partially because we wanted to give the wearer a visual clue that we’ve used grade 5 titanium for both the case of the watch and the ladder bracelet. Grade 5 titanium is the only quality of titanium that can be mirror polished in this way, and it is the material selected for serious horological finery from brands such as De Bethune. Romain Marietta, Zenith’s dynamic director of product development and heritage, actually experimented with many different levels of polish for the ladder bracelet, but in the end we decided on just the center links. He explains, “I think this adds a beautiful sense of contrast with the brushed finishes and makes for a truly stunning watch. The polished center links perfectly complement elements like the polished bevels of the watch, and the play over the light of these surfaces is amazing. At the same time, we wanted to use a slightly more aggressive brushing, so if you look at the sunray brush strokes in the case of the watch, they really stand out in direct light. We took our time to develop the perfect evolution to 2020’s Revival.” As a testament to both Marietta and Zenith CEO Julien Tornare’s commitment to innovation, neither balked at the idea of creating Zenith’s very first full grade 5 titanium ladder bracelet for our collaboration. Says Tornare, “At Zenith, our tradition has always been to push boundaries as we did all the way back in 1969 with the introduction of the world’s first integrated automatic chronograph movement. We had used titanium for some of our A386 style cases such as our Chronomaster ‘Shadow’ limited edition but, so far, not yet in a bracelet. But we thought this would be the perfect time to try it. We love to work on limited editions that are ambitious and bring something of real value to collectors. I have to say this watch is simply amazing and though we’ve made 250 pieces this time, I think it won’t be anywhere close to enough” Speaking to Tornare reminds me of the launch of our Zenith Chronomaster Revival A3818 “Zenith Airweght Cover Girl ” in 2020, which was the last watch event we attended before COVID changed our lives forever. We had all flown to Miami — Tornare from Le Locle, Switzerland, and myself from Singapore. We … Read more

Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights) are dancing lights, atmospheric phenomena, if you will, visible in the polar regions, within a radius of 2500km around the magnetic poles. Although beautiful, they are actually energised particles (solar wind) from the sun slamming into the Earth’s atmosphere at speeds of up to 72 million kph, but our planet’s magnetic … Read more

The watch’s USP though is an extremely unusual take on an already rare complication, the semi-foudroyante, which indicates time using a second hand which travels in distinct increments rather than sweeping smoothly. Here Zenith has implemented a 10-second foudroyante – as it did on the El Primero Striking 10th in 2011 – which completes six … Read more
