A Brief History of Zenith’s Elite Caliber, From 1994 to Today

The modern Elite collection is called the Inner Move, which was introduced by Zenith at Baselworld 1994 to match its chronograph movement, just El Primero. Unlike its chronograph counterpart, which has retained its unchanging architecture since its inception in 1969, Elite is a result of modern clocks. In particular, it is regarded as one of the first systems developed with the help of computer-assisted computing (CAD) software. In recent years, the Elite range has been replaced by the latest high-tech gadgets, including the use of silicon tools on the escape wheel and pallet lever.

The Elite race was well received in its early 1994, until it won the “Best Movement of the Year” award at the Basel show. While the Elite team does not match the popularity and popularity of Zenith El Primero, it does have many benefits and a lot of interest in providing enthusiastic watchmakers. Take, for example, the fact that the Elite was traditionally built lepine setup, with a few seconds at 9 p.m., to allow for a simple increase in damage levels, as shown by the moon phase display on new Elite Moonphase images. The Elite is very thin to be able to move steadily, its length is 3.47mm in its simple daily shape.

In most models, Elite calibers offer 50 hours of autonomy, with seconds stealing and a 4 Hz pulse. The Elite Classic hand-held three-dimensional models use the Elite 670 SK panel, which changes shape lepine mid-second hand procedure and includes drilling date 6 p.m. Popular Defy Classic examples borrow this from the Elite family. Elite Moonphase views the Elite 692 SK house, with a few seconds visible and a moon problem at XNUMX o’clock. In the Elite range that has been added to the HODINKEE Shop today, all of this movement is reflected through a sapphire crystal display that reflects white and elegant ornaments, including the weight of the oscillating bones and perlage on the mainplate and Geneva seas on bridges.
