ACADEMY GEORGES FAVRE-JACOT
THE ZENITH 150TH ANNIVERSARY CREATION !
To pay homage to Mr. Georges Favre-Jacot (iconic figure who founded the brand in 1865), an Amazing Fusée chain timepiece was created.
Limited edition of 150 pieces, the main focus of the Academy Georges Favre-Jacot is the Energy Efficiency. The complication (Fusée chain) allows the energy (coming from the barrel) to be delivered in a constant way to the rest of the mechanism. Visually, we love how the brand placed it on the top! Furthermore, it gives a fabulous opportunity to see the chain in motion when the owner winds the movement through the crown.
Traditional / Refine / Classical, the overall design is Stunning!
The central hour hands are not hiding the dial and that’s a perfect choice/development. In fact, they’re adding a subtle touch.
The execution of the two bridges (holding the fusée chain) is Superb as much as the power reserve fonts.
To find a Fusée chain complication on a timepiece is quite rare nowadays and it’s always a pleasure when a brand offers it. Besides 150 years of existence is a huge accomplishment so Happy Anniversary Zenith !
