In 1985 Ermenegildo Zegna launched High Performance, a new way of wearing wool that altered the way in which the business suit was perceived.Now, a generation later, Ermenegildo Zegna has taken the High Performance concept that it pioneered with fabrics and applied it to the wristwatch, resulting in a new range of timepieces, purposeful in their styling and as robust and resilient as their namesake fabric.
Crafted from black ceramic and equipped with ergonomic rubber coated pushpieces and winding crown, the High Performance Chronograph benefits from a 42 mm case diameter, with at-a-glance legibility of the dial and subdials further enhanced by the use of high contrast Arabic and baton hour markers. Every detail in the design has been carefully considered from the tachymetric scale etched directly into the ceramic bezel, to the matching colour specificity of the hands and numerals, to the brushed steel folding buckle on the robust rubber strap.
