Because life is adventure and because exploring aquatic depths is thrilling, ZRC® proposes dive watches made to take on extreme conditions out at sea and on dry land. Drawing on its legacy – the brand supplied timepieces to the French National Navy from 1964 to 1985 – ZRC® creates in Geneva and meticulously assembles sturdy, reliable its timepieces in its workshop in Tavannes.
The references of its Grands Fonds 300® 1964 “French Navy” Reissue, Grands Fonds® 1964 Spirit and GF 3000 Titanium™ all boast the same stylistic and technical features. Each model showcases a functionally-designed octagonal case, topped with a unidirectional rotating bezel, whose knurling has been finetuned to ensure perfect grip, equipped with a scratchproof ceramic insert. Wearer-friendliness is optimized for secure use during any dive. All the watches integrate ECS®, the patented Easy Clean System, which rinses the ensemble effectively after every use out at sea. This system eliminates impurities and prevents salt from crystallizing between the bezel and the case. The models are also all endowed with enhanced waterproofness thanks to the presence of the Crown Protection System™, which prevents the bracelet or strap from being clasped if the 6 o’clock-set crown is not screwed perfectly tightly.
ZRC®-imagined dive watches are rolled out in a wide array of up-to-the-minute colors. On their pared-down dials, SuperLuminova®-coated time data delivers excellent readability under any conditions of light. To fulfill customization desires, the comfortable metal bracelets and rubber, leather or NATO-style fabric straps are all compatible and interchangeable.
What’s more, the models of the three collections stand out with their outstanding accuracy. Each hosts a high-performing selfwinding movement, the Sellita SW-200-1 in its sophisticated version.
