Zenith Captain Grande Date Moonphase Review Case: Stainless Steel Case Diameter: 40mm Crystal: Sapphire Dial: Silver Bezel: Fixed Strap: Brown Alligator Movement: Elite 691 Power Reserve: 50 hours Water Resistant: 30M Lug Width: 18mm The Zenith Captain Grande Date Moonphase (ref. 03.2140.691/02.C498), wholesale replica watches what’s a moonphase real intended purpose besides looking great? Sailers used the stars to navigate, hence “Captain”. The Captain Grande Date Moonphase reflects stages of the moon. These stages are the new moon, full moon, first quarter, and last quarter.
Today’s real world use, not so much, still a very cool factor complication. The watch itself is obviously classic in design, though, a bit modern without the use of gold or yellow for the moon or stars. The dial is very well done with multiple guilloche patterns, from the center of the dial, to the ray pattern in the two subdials. The moonphase subdial is located at 6 o’clock, with the small seconds located at 9 o’clock. A grand date display is located in a non-traditional location at 1:30 position. Great choice on this location, the dial would have looked awkward if the grand date was located at 3 o’clock or 12 o’clock. The hands and applied indices compliment each other harmoniously. Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore replica Zenith’s gorgeous automatic Elite 691 is visible through the sapphire case back, fitted with 27 jewels, and a 50 hour power reserve. A brown alligator strap lined with rubber protection rounds out this 11mm thick watch. The fit/finish is impeccable, with gleaming high polish throughout the watch case. The Zenith Captain Grande Date Moonphase is very reasonably priced for a luxury watch considering the complications and movement.
Current retail for the Captain Grande Date Moonphase is $5,800 USD at the time of this review.
