Zenith Academy Christophe Colomb Hurricane

REF : 18.2212.8805/36.C713

A fine tribute to the brand’s origins and history, the Academy collection is a celebration of outstanding beauty and the highest peaks in watchmaking. The most notable piece in the collection is the Academy Christophe Colomb Equation du Temps that won the “Best Complicated Watch Prize” at the 2001 Geneva Watchmaking Grand Prix. The timepiece features an important complication patented by Zenith, called “Gravity Control”. Academy timepieces are inspired by the legendry marine chronometers, and there are many important watches issued in a limited edition of only 25 pieces.
