It uses precise watchmaking technology to design precise and rigorous complex functional mechanisms to create precise and reliable classic movements. In order to highlight the brand’s all-around advantage, the brand brought the Elite movement, which appeared in 1994, to the stage of the times again. The movement of this three-hand watch has always been hailed as one of the most accurate movements on the market, but it is shrouded in the halo of the legendary chronograph movement El Primero.

Show superb craftsmanship in simplicity and beauty
The Elite movement was developed by Zenith in 1994. A simple name represents the infinite vision of the brand. As an extension of the legendary chronograph movement El Primero, the ultra-thin Elite movement is rugged, precise and reliable, showing ZENITH’s ambitious ambitions in order to create more sophisticated and sophisticated masterpieces. This was rare at the time, as very few brands had their own basic movements. This research and development project started in 1991. After three years of research on ultra-thin self-winding movements and modules, the Elite movement was finally released. In addition, it was the first multifunctional movement to be designed with the help of a computer (CAD), which was not only used by other brands, but also developed multiple versions. This 11-minute movement has a power reserve of more than 50 hours and has stood the test of time to welcome a new look in the future. In 1994, it debuted at the Basel International Watch Fair and immediately received unanimous praise. Watch experts praise its many outstanding features, its slim shape is even more amazing, professional media more consistently voted it as ‘the movement of the year’. Elite movements have been widely praised since their introduction. Their impeccable quality is even more impressive, but it has never had the same reputation as the El Primero chronograph movement. The ZENITH watch factory uses cutting-edge technology and according to contemporary aesthetic standards to improve this original movement to create a new look, so that it can meet the needs of today’s use. The brand therefore presents a refreshed Elite movement, allowing it to create its own glory days in the long K time in the future.

The new Elite 6150 movement has become an important cornerstone of many new versions of the movement in the future. The Zenith R & D team focused on the improvement of the main features and performance of the movement. The watch’s shape is presented in a simple and delicate style.

The essence
In order to make the new Elite 6150 movement an important cornerstone of many new versions of the movement in the future, the ZENITH R & D team focused on the improvement of the main features and performance of the movement. The team’s experts exerted infinite creativity to add a second barrel to the movement, which doubled the original 55-hour power reserve. Since then, the new Elite 6150 movement will have an extra-long power reserve of more than four days. Throughout the development process, watchmaking experts also paid special attention to the thickness of the movement. Its slim shape is one of the main advantages, so it can be faithfully retained. Experts successfully completed this challenge: Although the movement consists of 195 parts, its thickness is only 3.92 mm. The diameter of the movement is slightly increased to meet the styling style of contemporary watches, and to provide a flexible and reliable foundation for adding more new features in the future. Another significant improvement of the movement is the change in the position of the second hand. This component was originally located at 9 o’clock, but now it has changed into a middle seconds hand. With its slender and elegant shape, it shows the precise and reliable quality of the movement. The Elite 6150 caliber is equipped with hour, minute, and second display functions, with a vibration frequency of 28,800 times per hour.
Exquisite rustic
