This watch features:

No doubt - One of the most sought-after Zenith watches ever released.

Zenith Captain Winsor Annual Calendar Chronograph 18kt Rose Gold, Silver Guilloche Dial, Automatic, Skeleton Back, Black Crocodile Strap, Rose Gold Deployant Buckle, 42mm

The Zenith Captain Winsor is everything a watch guy should want in a watch - it's classical, handsome, complicated, and innovative. Ben Clymer wrote a Letter from The Editor saying it was a watch worthy of the whole industry's attention, and the feedback on this watch has been deservingly enthusiastic.

Stemming from a cooperative endeavor between Zenith and the Musée International d’Horlogerie (MIH), the El Primero Winsor Annual Calendar model is a unique complication model offering a combination that is unique in the world: the most accurate series-made caliber beating at the exceptional frequency of 36,000 vibrations per hour - the legendary El Primero by Zenith - partnered with a useful and innovative annual calendar complication. The constructor behind it is none other than Ludwig Oechslin, curator of the Musée International d’Horlogerie in La Chaux-de-Fonds (Switzerland). This passionately dedicated individual has devised an annual calendar displaying the day of the week, the date and the month, while requiring only one adjustment per year.

The annual calendar is displayed by three concentric discs ensuring optimal readability. The outer disc indicates the date and the middle one the month, while the inner disc displays the day of the week. This mechanism is both simple and complex: for months with 31 days, the date disc moves the month disc forwards, while the month disc “skips” the 31 for months with 30 days. Only the transition from February to March requires a manual adjustment.

The clever, pared-down construction of this complication comprises just nine moving elements, thus ensuring enhanced accuracy compared with most calendars that have 30 or 40.

Allying the expertise of two venerable watchmaking institutions, the El Primero Winsor Annual Calendar embodies the type of ingenuity that aims to ensure maximum user-friendless and optimal readability. It beats at the heart of a model combining elegance and classic understatement in keeping with the well-established tradition of the El Primero Collection.

If you look closely at the dial, you’ll see that the hour hand extends right to the edge of the guilloche circle, which is also at the edge of the hour indices. The minute hand, then, extends just about out to the very edge of the case, allowing for precise (to the minute) time-telling, as it’s right against the hash marks on the outer edge (also for use with the chronograph seconds hand). Handsets are an item we tend to be tough with, but here I think Zenith did a superb job, both in sizing them, as well as keeping a cohesive look with the indices.

As an aside, the annual calendar complication came to be via collaboration with Musée International d‘Horlogerie (MIH) – specifically, their curator Ludwig Oechslin.

Right off the bat, you can see that we’ve got quite the nice list of functionality, all enabled by the El Primero 4054 automatic movement. Zenith didn’t just go for function however. They’ve created a rather striking timepiece around this movement. All of those functions are set into a silver-tone dial, with a guilloche treatment appearing in the center. This gives a nice bit of texture, and I’d say is a good alternative to a sunburst pattern in the dial.

As you would expect, the case is topped with a domed sapphire crystal (AR coating on both sides), and also has a flat sapphire crystal embedded in the caseback. One unexpected part comes in with the strap. You might be wondering, well, what’s so special about it? We’ve seen alligator straps before. Well, with this particular strap, Zenith actually gave it a rubber lining. This is for some protection from water (the watch itself has a 50m WR rating), but I think it will also extend the life of the strap, giving it some additional strength and support. The strap comes standard with an upgraded solid 18kt Rose Gold Zenith Deployant Buckle.

The Zenith brand offers watches of the highest quality matched with incredible style.

This watch is art for the wrist. This is an exceedingly rare wristwatch with more wrist presence than you could imagine. Complicated watches are great to begin with, but combine the complication with the stepped curved case and the movement assembly and you have a watch you will definitely not want to take off. And, depending on your mood, this watch can serve as a conversation started par excellence.

The rear sapphire crystals permit viewing the caliber in great detail. While this case shape looks great, its style is overshadowed only by its comfort.
