Proudly displaying unobstructed views of cutting-edge Zenith mechanics: the Academy Tourbillon Georges Favre-Jacot offers a futuristic take on Haute Horlogerie. Its powerful design and innovative materials reveal an unprecedented ‘engine’ – El Primero Calibre 4805 – combining two iconic complications from the Manufacture: the tourbillon and a fusee and chain transmission system. Issued in a 150-piece limited edition featuring a 45 mm-diameter black ceramic case, this sophisticated watch fully reveals the contemporary architecture of its high-frequency heart.
Eloquently expressing the comprehensive manufacturing expertise cultivated by Zenith, the Academy Tourbillon Georges Favre-Jacot flaunts its mechanism in an entirely transparent manner. Its virile black ceramic case houses a new El Primero movement equipped with a tourbillon as well as a fusée and chain transmission system. These two horological complications, both specialities of the brand with the guiding star, are thus united for the first time in a Zenith high-frequency movement. The dial-free hand-wound El Primero Calibre 4805 provides a perfect picture of its magnificent mechanisms and its powerful architecture.
