150th Anniversary Academy Georges Favre-jacot Titanium Limited Watch Launched By Zenith

This year marks the 150th anniversary of the creation of Swiss watchmaker Zenith. Zenith launched the Academy Georges Favre-Jacot rose gold watch at the beginning of the year. The limited edition of 150 watches pays tribute to the founder of the brand. Today, Zenith has added a titanium version to this commemorative watch, which is also limited to 150 pieces. Compared with the traditional restrained former, the titanium version is more dynamic and avant-garde.
   The watch has a diameter of 45 mm and a thickness of 14.35 mm. It is equipped with an El Primero 4810 high frequency manual winding movement. The movement is assembled of 797 parts (of which 575 parts make up an 18 cm long sesame sprocket train), with a vibration frequency of 36,000 times / hour (5 Hz), and can provide at least 50 hours of power reserve.
   Even in the fine watchmaking world, sesame chain is a rare mechanism. Some high-end brands such as Breguet, Lange and Romain Gauthier have their own corresponding mechanism variants. Through the dial side, you can clearly appreciate the precise operation of the sesame chain system. The barrel is set at 10 and 11 o’clock, and the chain is set at 1 and 2 o’clock.
