Zentier Chronograph - 5.01
At exactly 5.01pm the evening starts and we stop picking up the office phones, we enter our wardrobe and adapt the sartorial simplicity appropriate for evenings. No man knows it better, and puts it better, than the legendary entertainer, singer and performer: Frank Sinatra.
Sinatra was know for his music, his impeccable style and his behaviour. When asked about appropriate evening attire he famously answered:
"There is no excuse for brown shoes past sundown.. or white shoes. Or anything grey, unless its deep charcoal. Or blue, unless it's midnight blue. In fact, lets keep it simple: After dark, men should wear black!"
Needless to say, this sparked the fire that later became - the 5.01
This watch, with its name and with its black dial acts as a subtle reminder of a time when sartorial greatness was at its best, forever inspiring and guiding the future of style and elegance.
The black enamel dial with its subtle shine and deep black colour makes for a stunning looking dial. The watch features a steel case, applied steel hour markers, steel hands, white indexes, and a big white seconds hand. A truly striking combination of elements.
It is a watch which tells more than "just" time - it tells a story, a watchmaking story.
The design is based around elegance and simplicity while at the same time holding the highly complicated function of the chronograph. The watch has three sub dials (24-hour indicator at "3", running seconds at "6" and the chronograph minute counter at "9")
Each element is carefully designed and combined to achieve just the right balance of inherited character and modern simplicity.
The watch features angled lugs, square rounded pushers and a large crown, often associated with historically prominent vintage chronographs.
This watch is a timeless classic looking watch with a modern simplicity to it, making it the perfect timepiece for the modern gentleman.
