Comfortable brown leather wristband, Super-Luminova® Old radium coated hands and hour markers, and a tropicalized dial are the rule of three for this model with a decidedly vintage sport chic look. Each GF40215 reference displays a unique personality achieved through the original patina of its dial. With its multi-faceted styling and iconic case, the Grands Fonds 300® easily complements a casual outfit or a more elegant wrist. Just like all ZRC® watches, it features optimized ergonomics and the brand’s latest modern innovations such as the unidirectional rotating bezel insert made of scratch-resistant ceramic.

ECS® Patent n°1462496 (Easy Clean System)
The ECS® is a technical solution to an issue encountered by the mine clearance divers of the Marine Nationale during their many dives: salt crystallizing in the gaps between the bezel and case, thus impeding its rotation. For the 2015 re-issue of the Grands Fonds 300®, ZRC® has developed and patented a functional solution – the ECS® was born. A unique system for cleaning the inside of the bezel by circulating fresh water that dilutes and evacuates the sea salt. The ECS® is the ultimate tribute to the original Grands Fonds® and is perfectly in tune with the brand’s identity.
Crown Protection System™
100% safety is guaranteed thanks to this exclusive strap system using retractable lugs. It is now impossible to place the watch in water without screwing the crown back into its original position. If the crown is not screwed down, the strap cannot be correctly repositioned. This effective method prevents oversights that can lead to technical difficulties.
Curved sapphire: 4 mm
The use of a Vintage 4mm glass box gives credits to the lately 1964 Spirit Grands Fonds®. Thanks to its authentic design it clearly brings you back in the 70’s.
