Say hello to Zenith’s newest invention, the Zenith El Primero… Wait, that is not right… Welcome to the Zenith Elite 6150, the manufacture’s updated dress watch line which features a new in-house movement. While it would be easy to state that Zenith elite 6150 ultra-thin replica watches and its own El Primero are absolutely inseparable, the business has in fact been supplying the Elite line of apparel watches, coming with a simpler feature set and a cursory appearance than most El Primero-equipped Zenith watches.
The Zenith Elite has, obviously, never been able to substitute the El Primero, but then again, that is not the purpose here — it’s a controlled expansion to Zenith’s portfolio of watches, something which provides what you’d expect from a true manufacture — in a comparatively cheaper cost level, matched to arguably more aesthetics.
The Zenith Elite line began as just that, and has been around with more or less quiet updates — particularly when compared to many smaller and larger new iterations that the El Primero base quality has been exposed to. Among the more intriguing pieces of news associated with the Zenith Elite 6150 rose gold replica watch arrived in 2014, when Zenith declared that they would be offering Zenith Elite collection timepieces now equipped with sourced Sellita calibers — a bit of a shocker out of Zenith, that has been a long standing member in the close group of authentic and dedicated manufactures.
At that time, the point was supposed to lower the barrier of entrance to the new — and because the manufacture has attained the limits of its output capacities at approximately 50,000 calibers each year, it would allow them to step up in volume and farther down a little in price. Another exceptionally noteworthy event in Zenith’s history in the last year was that the company’s CEO, Jean-Frédérique Dufour left the company to lead Rolex — also it was hard to tell whether the new director of Zenith elite 6150 movement fake watches , Aldo Magada — former chief executive of Gucci Group Watches — could continue following this course or not.
Apparently, we’re being given an answer to this question right now, as the Zenith Elite 6150, Zenith claims, is”bringing back into the forefront its most famous Elite base calibre presented in 1994.” What made the modern Zenith elite 6150 rose gold replica watches what it is now was unquestionably its own return to its origins and more conventional side, as Dufour steered the company back that way after the much more contemporary — and on many occasions, quite intense — direction that its former CEO, Theirry Nataf had put. This development also brings up another logical question: how did Zenith develop a new in-house motion in such a short period (basically less than a year from the time of its change of heart)? The answer in this instance, Zenith says, is they have worked on the initial Zenith Elite caliber — that has likely accounted for substantial savings both in time, in addition to financial investment in its own development.
The new movement now provides a most welcome 100-hour power book and a generous diameter. The Zenith Elite 6150 adds an excess barrel into the first’s singe-barrel construction, upping the power reserve from 55 to the aforementioned 100+ hour limitation. Beyond incorporating some extra oomph into the grade, Zenith elite moonphase clone has also concentrated on keeping it lean: that accumulation of 195 components is just 3.92 millimeters thick, allowing the brand to maintain using the movement in elegant dress watches. The functions of this 6150 include the indication of hours, minutes and fundamental minutes — transferring the seconds signal from the preceding manufacture caliber’s 9 o’clock position to this central place where it helps preserve the symmetry of this dial. At this point, we do not know whether the final version is going to have a sapphire crystal or solid metal case back, but we’ll add this information as soon as it is made available.
While the rationale behind the Sellita-driven Elite models was clear and fairly plausible — considering the aims of opening up the brand to get a newer customer base using a comparatively smaller budget — Zenith has obviously decided to”reaffirm the brand’s determination to honor its standing as a Manufacture.” That’s what they say, and that’s what they do with all the Zenith Elite 6150. The overall design is rather conservative — which is nothing new when it comes to the Zenith Elite series — although the movement seems to feature just enough modifications to leave it a considerable competition in the greater end dress watch section. And while the pieces with the sourced Sellita moves may appear to be somewhat less desirable, as they obviously lack the in-house flair that has been provided before and following their brief career, one wonders how that restricted production period will affect the mid-to-long term collectibility of those pieces.
