SWISS SMOKED SPLEN­DOUR

Plaza Watch International - - Display Case - Ultra Thin Watches -

The Cap­tain Cen­tral Sec­ond from Zenith grabs at­ten­tion im­me­di­ately with its so­phis­ti­cated smoked sil­ver­toned pal­la­dium dial. It’s a rarefied colour that has real character and could never be­come tire­some. The 18K rose gold case mea­sures in at an un­der­stated 40mm in di­am­e­ter and is just 8.15 mm thick. The Zenith Elite Cal­i­bre 670 cal­i­bre at the heart of this slick time­piece is con­structed from 144 com­po­nents, has 27 jew­els, an ap­prox­i­mate power re­serve of 50 hours, and mea­sures in at a re­mark­able 3.47mm thick. Pol­ished rose gold-coloured hands & ap­plied in­dexes add to the so­phis­ti­cated charm of this clas­si­cal Zenith time­piece.

A dis­cern­ing eye will ap­pre­ci­ate the proper hand length on this watch. It’s easy to get this vi­tal de­tail wrong and many a watch suf­fers due to the hands be­ing slightly out of pro­por­tion. Thank­fully Zenith is metic­u­lous about hav­ing the right hand length on its watches and the Cap­tain Cen­tral Sec­ond stays true to form. The domed sap­phire glass has an anti-re­flec­tion treat­ment on both sides and the al­li­ga­tor strap has a cleaver pro­tec­tive rub­ber lin­ing. The over­all ef­fect is a min­i­mal­ist el­e­gance – the Cap­tain Cen­tral Sec­ond is an ideal every­day watch from the Le Lo­cle star brand.
