Zenith Academy Christophe Colomb Tribute To Cohiba

Two legendary manufacturers – Zenith and Cohiba – united in a spirit of authencity and expertise. To celebrate the 50th anniversary of Cohiba, the flagship brand of Habanos, Zenith has presented five unique timepieces featuring a hand-engraved and enameled Havana gold dial – a watch designed for Haute Horlogerie and luxury cigar enthusiasts.

Connoisseurs will be fighting to get their hands on this spectacular timepiece. Only a handful of Academy Christophe Colomb Tribute to Cohiba pieces has been manufactured. They celebrate Zenith’s collaboration with the most prestigious cigar brand in the world.

Displayed in an elegant rose gold case of 45mm in diameter, the timepiece boasts a unique amber-coloured dial. Crafted in gold and engraved by hand, it reproduces the texture and feel of a tobacco leaf to perfection, while the shimmering brown enamel brings with it the feeling of an authentic puro. Just like a hand-rolled Habanos, this masterpiece has a complex aroma, combining strength and finesse. Beneath the domed sapphire crystal, the applique hour-markers and the faceted, gold-plated hands showcase the spectacular self-regulating Gravity Control module, encircled by the Zenith and Cuban brand emblems.

The uniqueness of the Academy Christophe Colomn Tribute to Cohiba is also reflected in its Manufacture movement, which combines two mechanisms ensuring unequalled precision: On the one hand, a regulating organ with high-frequency oscillations (5 Hz) enabling tenth of a second time sequencing, and on the other, a patented Gravity Control gyroscopic module which neutralizes the effects of gravity on the watch operation.

Housed in a case with a water resistance of up to 30 meters and equipped with a total of 308 components – 171 of which are used for the gyroscopic module – the hand-wound El Primero 8804 caliber features off-centered hours and minutes functions, small seconds, a self-regulating Gravity Control module and a power reserve indicator boasting an autonomy of more than 50 hours.

A heads up for enthusiasts: Each Academy Christophe Colomb Tribute to Cohiba is a unique piece equipped with a brown alligator rubber-lined strap with a rose gold triple folding clasp, and presented in an exclusive wood humidor box which transforms into a tobacco case.
