ZENITH @ 2013 Heritage Star 33mm New Collection

Embodying the subtle chemistry between technical excellence and eminently feminine seduction, the new Heritage Star 33 mm quickens the pulse of women with a taste for mechanical watchmaking expressed through glamorous interpretations tinged with classicism. The cushion-shaped retro chic rose gold or steel case is smaller than previously, and deploys its elegant lines in dainty 33 x 33 mm dimensions as if to magnify the slim approach that determined the design of the watch. While measuring just 9.45 mm thick, it is powered by an exceptionally precise and reliable automatic movement: Elite Calibre 681. This 3.47 mm ultra-thin gem beats at a frequency of 4 Hz and has an over 50-hour power reserve. Its gear trains and its oscillating weight adorned with a Côtes de Genève motif are revealed through the sapphire case-back, while the inexorable onward course of time is displayed on the dial side. The exquisite silver-toned guilloché “flinqué-froissé” dial base is graced with classic blue or gold-toned Roman numerals punctuated by 12 brilliant-cut diamonds (approx. 0.1 cts). The rhodium-plated or gold-plated facetted hour and minute hands sweep over this composition crafted in accordance with the finest watchmaking traditions, while the small seconds hand spins around its own subdial at 9 o’clock. Water-resistant to 30 metres, the refined and understated Heritage Star 33 mm features a crown set with a cabochon-cut sapphire. It is complemented by a brown or grey alligator leather strap fitted with a pin buckle and embodies a fine example of what occurs when elegance and excellence meet and merge to form an inseparable whole.
