Zenith expands their “Academy Christophe Colomb Hurricane” collection with three new 

watchmaking wonders tribute to three legendary South American revolution figures: Simon Bolivar

Ernesto “Che” Guevara and Emiliano Zapata

 

Three timepieces, three watchmaking discoveries

 

These three models are biased movement with revolutionary features such as Gravity control 

system, fusée-chain transmission and a frequency of 36,000 vibrations per hour. You can also admire 

the great mechanism through the dial. 

The most spectacular feature about these watches is located on the case back with three surprises. 

The three iconic heroes of the Revolution are represented through miniature paintings produced by 

the best artisans of the Manufacture. The greatest watchmaking techniques have been used to 

achieve these exceptional pieces: enameling, engraving and micropainting

Zenith confirms their watchmaking tradition by using traditional techniques that have persisted for 

more than 150 years. 

 

Mastered Creations and advanced mechanisms 

 

The dials of the Academy Columbus Huricane Revolucion timepieces represent South American 

generals through bright and golden colors. Each detail is finely engraved and hand painted using a 

microscope to make the scenes even more realistic and dramatic. 

The new watches of the Columbus collection are equipped with a high oscillation frequency regulator

sequencing the time in tenths of a second. The gravity control has succeeded in neutralizing the 

effects of gravity on the performance of the watch. Thus, the Academy Columbus Hurricane offers 

high level of performance and promises optimum accuracy in the measurement of time. 

Zenith is able to twin a very complex movement and an exceptional artwork through these three new 

models of high watchmaking. 

Only three models of each reference of the Columbus Hurricane 

Revolucion are available on the market for a total amount of $ 1,257,000. 

The three Columbus Academy timepieces are offered in a very special case: a mahogany box with effigies of the three 

characters. The box can subsequently be transformed into a cigar humidor!
