Zenith, Switzerland’s top watchmaker, once again supported the ‘Only Watch’ charity auction created by the Monaco royal family in 2013, and will specially donate the first century space hero Felix Bower who broke the sound barrier Mugatner’s Zenith, which was worn in the stratospheric space jump project, El Primero’s flagship Somfly fly back to the original 1/10 jump second watch for auction, thereby raising funds for the Monaco Muscular Atrophy Association.
This unique timepiece, the Zenith El Primero’s flagship Stratocloud flyback 1 / 10th of a second from the Zenith watchmaking factory, successfully accompanied Felix Baumgartner to complete the same temperature The layer space jump project, and thus became the only watch in the world to break through the sound barrier in near air.
Zenith successfully created the first legendary chronograph movement, El Primero, in 1969, and flew it from Paris to New York to hang it on a Boeing 747 aircraft landing gear to verify the accuracy and robustness of this movement. During the flight, the watch experienced a height drop of 10,700 meters, a large temperature difference, low pressure and irregular vibration, and it still operated normally when the aircraft landed. In 2012, Zenith watch achieved another amazing height again. From the altitude of 38,969.4 meters (127,852.4 feet), the stratosphere at the edge of space fell at a maximum speed of Mach 1.25, becoming the world’s first successful breakthrough of sound barriers in near air The founder of this watch has once again verified the reliability of Zenith watches in extreme environments: extremely high and low temperatures, sudden changes in pressure, severe vibrations, and violent acceleration.
Zenith El Primero’s flagship Strato Flyback 1/10 Jump Second watch perfectly integrates Zenith core features: a classic tri-color dial, the world’s first high-frequency chronograph movement, El Primero, and the groundbreaking 1 / 10 seconds display function.
