Limited edition of 25 Zenith Columbus Tourbillon Watches
On September 28, 2010, Zenith held a new product launch conference at the Royal Observatory in the United Kingdom, and launched the latest masterpiece & mdash; & mdash; Columbus tourbillon watch developed after 5 years. Zenith named this watch Christopher Columbus, and expressed its respect for this brave and fearless marine explorer. In fact, Zenith is not the first time Columbus has named a product.
As early as the 20th century, Zenith produced the Lepine astronomical clock movement, and its escapement was named ‘Columbus escapement’. This calibre with a diameter of 201/2 & quot; & quot; & quot; NVI was awarded with three first prizes from the Neuchâtel Observatory in Switzerland and the Tytington Observatory’s A-Class Certificate-very good (Especially good). Therefore, this is not only a tribute to the world’s greatest nautical explorer, but also from historical heritage.
零 This zero-gravity tourbillon movement consists of a self-adjusting gyroscope frame and a constant-level escapement. In this system, one gear system controls the rotation of the frame axis, and another differential gear equipped with a reverser instantly cancels all the relative movements of various elements. During the wearing process, the tourbillon is always in a balanced position no matter how it moves, which can effectively offset the error caused by the gravity of the movement and improve the accuracy of the watch’s travel time.
Limited to 25 Zenith Columbus Tourbillon watches this time, equipped with ACADEMY 8804 manual-winding movement, 18K white gold, rose gold or yellow gold case, dial with wheat ears and Paris studs, with blue steel hands look neat The generous, curved sapphire glass encapsulates the gyroscope assembly. Regardless of technology or design, the tourbillon watch released this time can be said to be a major milestone in the history of Zenith watchmaking
