Zenith continues to be the most cutting edge and quality Swiss watchmaker so I suppose that it won’t come as too much of a surprise to hear that they have won watch of the year 2011. In fact the chronograph walked away with two prizes because they also picked up, ‘most complicated watch of the year’. Tag Heuer and Corum also performed well but it was undoubtedly Zenith’s night. This event was hosted by Chitralekha Group and was held in Greater Nordia.

The watch that caught the judge’s attention was the Zenith Christophe Colomb watch. This stunning chronograph is inspired by Christopher Columbus who is the most famous explorer of all time. The watch face contains a small bubble that contains a Cardan suspensioi; this is the exact same mechanism that would have been found in the ship’s compass of Christopher Columbus. The watch is created to ensure the best possible precision; it is probably this that most impressed the judges. It has a manual winding button, and the watch can keep going for 50 hours afterwards. This is a watch that most of us would just love to have in our possession, but it is not cheap at over £130,000.
