Ermenegildo Zegna, the iconic Italian menswear producer, is a recognised leader in innovation in its own field. In 1985 the company launched the High Performance concept changing the way in which the wool fabric business suit was perceived.
Now Ermenegildo Zegna has applied the High Performance concept to the wristwatch. The result is a new range of beautiful and elegant timepieces, purposeful in their styling and as robust and resilient as their namesake fabric: the High Performance Chronograph.
The new timepieces are crafted from black ceramic and equipped with ergonomic rubber coated pushpieces and winding crown. Boasting a 42 mm case diameter, the High Performance Chronograph offers high legibility of the dial and subdials further enhanced by the use of high contrast Arabic and baton hour markers. The High Performance Chronograph is the watch for the sophisticated men who love detailed design coupled with careful swiss watchmaking. Attention to every detail is very high and the design shows it clearly: from the tachymetric scale etched directly into the ceramic bezel, to the matching color specificity of the hands and numerals, to the brushed steel folding buckle on the robust rubber strap.
The High Performance Chronograph relies on a special partnership with expert swiss watches manufacturer ETA. The movement is an 2894 automatic winding, 37 jewel, 28 mm diameter, 6.1 mm height, with 42 hours power reserve and houses a swiss lever escapement with Incabloc™ antishock system beating at 28’800 vibrations per hour. To make it more special, the movement is personalized with a Zegna-branded oscillating weight.
Should you want the option of more colors than black or white, the High Performance watches are available in different color combinations to match your personal preferences and style so to make this timepieces even more unique.
