Academy Christophe Colomb Hurricane

The Zenith Academy Christophe Colomb Hurricane is driven by a high-frequency movement with constant-force fusee-chain transmission and the Gravity Control module, inspired by marine chronometers, that maintains the regulating organ in a horizontal position. It stands out as one of the most pertinent solutions to the complex problems of gravity, precision and isochronism, and demonstrates what Zenith can achieve in terms of reliability and precision.
