Zenith Academy Academy Christophe Colomb

About Academy Academy Christophe Colomb:

Zenith Academy Christophe Colomb is inspired by the vintage marine chronometer instrument. The watch features a patented Gravity Control gyroscopic module. The escapement of the watch is placed inside of a cage, which maintains in upward position by being weighted down and mounted on a gyroscopic-style gimbal to the movement. The purpose of the gimbal is to keep the cage upright, with respect to the horizon, despite the movement of the wrist. Another distinctive features of the Academy Christophe Colomb watches is their sapphire crystal bubble covering the escapement, which protrudes on both the top and the bottom of the case. The cage freely moves around as the wearer rotates the wrist. The bubble provides the space for the escapement to move.
