Following the success of the Grands Fonds 300, ZRC has decided to continue the adventure by re-releasing a new Swiss-made version of this revolutionary watch. Available for purchase from 2015, two models of the watch will be on offer: the re-edition, which is 100% faithful to the model produced in the 1960s for the mine clearance divers of the French Navy, and a more chic sport version, tying in with the current design trends and conventions, which has the same case, with its famous crown at 6 o’clock and bezel with luminous inserts.
It is a diving watch par excellence, with great diving legibility provided by its super luminous hands, its crown at 6 o’clock protected by the CPS© (Crown Protection System), ETA movement, unidirectional notched bezel, reverse direction winding mechanism and diver’s strap. The new Grands Fonds 300 proudly asserts its original identity. Moving from a case diameter of 36 to 40.5 mm, which is more in line with current trends, the watch has been given a domed anti-reflective sapphire crystal. The addition of chamfers to the case/strap ensemble makes it very pleasant to wear. With its clean lines and sleek esthetics, the new Grands Fonds 300 pays homage to its heritage and represents a perfect fusion of tradition and innovation.
