Astute manufacturers pay attention when their products unexpectedly show up in movies, TV shows or social media, and watchmaker Zenith is no exception. When the title character of a popular anime series was shown wearing Zenith chronographs that did not exist at the time, they created them. The first example had a black, grey and gilt dial; the second a distinctive black and white dial, earning it the nickname “Panda.” The third and final edition combines them both. The two colors are applied separately, a time-consuming process that delivers the dramatic appearance. The dial is then paired with a reproduction of a 1969 Zenith case housing an automatic calibre chronograph movement. A steel ladder bracelet keeps it all in place. What began as a drawing sprang to life, delighting watch collectors and anime fans alike. A limited edition of only 250 pieces will be produced; Zenith-Watches.com.
C Seed changed television viewing forever with their $1.5 million, 301-inch folding and vanishing model. They’re back with the N1 for an affordable (relatively speaking!) yet equally magnificent alternative starting at $190,000.
