Zenith will be unveiling another great lineup of watches at Baselworld 2011 (March 24-31, 2011), with the Zenith Captain Power Reserve watch you see below being just one example of this. Under the leadership of Jean-Frédéric Dufour since mid-2009, Zenith has undergone a superbly positive transformation by focusing on more traditional watch designs that reflect the brand’s heritage and technical strengths — i.e. its legendary “El Primero” chronograph movements. Take a look back at several of the Zenith watches I have profiled in the last year, and you will clearly see that Zenith’s “return to its roots” has delivered some exemplary timepieces and given watch owners, collectors & enthusiasts a reason to fall in love with the brand all over again.
