The ZRC watches are manufactured from the best materials
and assembled with accuracy so guaranteeing their Swiss Made quality.

The ZRC 1964 Spirit is a true tribute to our models from the 60’s. It hasn’t been an easy job to “Dompter” the tense curves and the “sporty” character of the Grands Fonds which thus had to pass by a “Face-lift” to endow Vintage codes while preserving its diver’s DNA. It is the dial which raised most problems: impossible to industrially recreate the patina of time. It was thus necessary to develop a specific dial tint given to craftsmen expert hands to achieve the correct patina giving her its character. To enhance its ageing look, all luminous inserts have been developped with a specific egg-shell ton while the hands were secured with a “micro-brushing” treatment enhanced by the use of a 4mm sapphire Glass Box.

To accomplish its metamorphosis, the 1964 Spirit adorns itself with a magnificent “hand-made” ageing full calf skin cut from the thicker & softer neck portion. The aged finish shows off and perfectly match with all vintage effects.

  • BEZEL - ECS™ Patent pending (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 - 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.
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.
The ETA movement of the 2015 ZRC Grands Fonds is composed of 25-ruby wheels, on which Incabloc shock protection was used. Extremely precise, the balance performs 28,800 half-oscillations per hour. With a mechanism diameter of 25.6 mm, it offers a power reserve of 38 hours.
