Zahnd & Kormann ZK No. 1 – Swiss Made Automatic Chronograph Featuring Full Calendar and Moonphase

Zahnd & Kormann watch brand was founded by Florian Kormann and Roger Zahnd in order to create high quality timepieces bearing the prestigious Swiss Made label. Based in Bern, the capital of Switzerland, the brand has an easy access to the expertise and services offered by world renowned companies involved in traditional watchmaking industry.
For its debut watch collection Zahnd & Kormann has selected the legendary ETA Mecaline Chronograph 7751 Valjoux self winding calibre that can offers Chronograph, full calendar and moon phase functions. This 25 jewels movement finds its place in a classically designed stainless steel case measuring 41mm diameter, a size that perfectly suits for a contemporary dress watch. The movement featuring a customized rotor is visible through the sapphire crystal caseback.
Two models are available in this collection based on its dial colour and case finishing: ZK No. 1 Black Moon and ZK No. 1 Blue Moon. Black Moon model features a Black PVD coated stainless steel case and black dial whereas Blue Moon dial boasts a blue dial inside the stainless steel case. Production of both timepieces is limited to 2’016 pieces per model.

Zahnd & Kormann is planning to launch an online crowd funding campaign by middle or end of December 2016 in order to start the initial mass production of this watch collection. Offered with an early bird price starting from CHF 1’229.00 per piece, these watches will carry 2 years warranty.
