The Port Royal from Zenith Watch is a perfect watch for those who want a true Swiss luxury timepiece without going into debt. The square case, bezel, and back of the Port Royal are beautifully burnished and striking stainless steel.
The dial face is a beautifully contrasting matte black with silver numbers, featuring a chronograph and three smaller dials inset into the watch face. The chronograph numbers on the main face and hands on the smaller inset dials feature red accents. The hands and numbers are luminescent in the dark, and easily legible in a pitch-black room. The viewing glass is domed crystal sapphire with an anti-reflection coating. The pusher buttons to start and start the chronograph are easy to operate, and the watch winds well.
The heart of any luxury timepiece, is of course the movement, and the Port Royal features the El Primero automatic self winding movement which is the signature of Zenith Watches and considered by many to be the best mechanical watch movement on the planet. The movement used on Zenith Watches ticks at an astonishing 36,000 times per hour, making it more accurate than most other, which typically feature a rate of only 28,000 vph. Per testing, the watch gains at most five seconds per day, making it exceedingly consistent compared to other mechanical watches on the market today.
