Zenith 2006 Watches
Zenith has announced their new 2006 models which include the Grande Open and Class Open Series and new additions to the Queen of Love series. The Grande Class Open and Class Open use the new 4021H movement. The El Primero Open chronograph beats at a rhythm of 36,000 vibrations per hour. The watch is offered in three colors, white, gray and black, in two sizes, 40 or 44mm, and in both stainless steel and 18K rose gold cases. There are both smooth and guilloche dials and it has a transparent caseback. Features include hours, minutes, small seconds, a power reserve indicator, chronograph seconds and a 30-minute chronograph counter. Classic, elegant and both well-crafted and completely readable. The Baby Star Open Love is reduced to a 32mm size and uses the new Elite 68 automatic movement. The open heart shows the movement and the removable strap is done in satin silk. The dial colors now include red, black, white, and new colors of brown, beige and violet (shown after the jump). To my eye, the new colors are gorgeous and the open heart movement doesn't dominate the watch as much.
