Zenith has rejuvenated the Elite collection through timeless lines and simple yet strong visual aesthetics. The Zenith Elite Lady Moonphase is setting the tone for the brand and its modern, stylish watches.
What are the key features?
The most important feature worth mentioning is that the Zenith Elite Lady Moonphase has 64 round brilliant cut diamonds around the bezel with VS clarity, totalling 0.9 of a carot. These diamonds sparkle beautifully from its side angles and would be noticeable for those around you. This watch is also offered without diamonds.
The stainless-steel bracelet is another exquisite feature. It’s so shiny that you can see your own reflection. It’s elegant, classy and practical. Due to the design and make of this bracelet, marks or light scratches were not visible even after a few weeks of wear. This watch also comes in the black alligator leather strap which is also a classy look.
The diameter of the Zenith Elite Lady Moonphase is 36mm which may sound big but as the casing is only 9.1mm, it’s ultra-thin. This watch is also available in 33mm with or without diamonds.
The dial of the Zenith Elite Lady Moonphase is simple and clean making it extremely easy to tell the time. The blue hand of the small seconds counter at 9 o’clock is a thoughtful feature as it stands out well against the mother of pearl dial. It shines beautifully under the right light and angle. The simplicity of the dial adds to the elegance of this watch.
The open case back is just as appealing as the front of the dial. The movement that’s inside the Zenith Elite Lady Moonphase is Zeniths’s own automatic Elite 692 calibre. There are 195 components and 27 jewels in the movement which creates a power reserve of minimum 50 hours and beats at a frequency of 28 800. If you look close enough, you’ll notice that the oscillating weight of this watch is finished beautifully with a Geneva wave motif and the Zenith logo both complimenting the movement and the overall appearance of the case back.
It comes with a 50-meter water resistance rating (5bar). It can handle rain and shallow waters however it certainly shouldn’t be worn under water.
Whilst the moon phase indication at 6 o’clock may seem impractical to some. The complexity, art and the technology behind this functionality is commendable. It’s fascinating, interesting and even romantic.
How does it wear?
I’ve been wearing this watch for a couple of months and I’ve come to love it. My wrist is around 5.7inches, and I had to get six links removed for a comfortable fit.
The Zenith Elite Lady Moonphase is a versatile watch that can be dressed up or down depending on your preference. It’s a dress watch that will definitely be well suited to formal events such as weddings, parties or work events. As its light and thin, it fits nicely under full sleeve tops or dresses. I have also worn this stunning watch to casual events with a T-shirt, skirt and white sneakers because I love it!
