To mark Zenith's 150th anniversary, the Academy Georges Favre-Jacot offers a magnificent compendium of the multiple skills exercised within the manufacture. More than a mere tribute, this haute horlogerie model testifies to a profound respect for the spirit of the founder without whom nothing would have ever have taken shape.
On the technical side, the Academy Georges Favre-Jacot naturally houses a high-frequency hand-wound El Primero 4810 movement. Occupying the entire lower right-hand side of the dial, the power-reserve display is topped by the inscriptions "Force Constante" and "High Frequency," which gives an immediate indication of the movement's high quality.
But the feature that immediately catches the eye and will strike connoisseurs is the upper dial opening revealing the fusée and chain transmission. While the movement takes more than 50 hours to unwind, a few seconds of winding are enough to see the fusée and barrel turning counter-clockwise as the chain wraps around the fusée.
