Ermenegildo Zegna launches Monterubello Power Reserve limited edition watch
February 12, 2015: In 2010, the year of Ermenegildo Zegna’s centenary, the brand had partnered with watchmaker Girard Perregaux, to make elegant timepieces by combining the meticulous manufacturing prowess of Girard Perregaux, with the unique savoir fair of Zegna.
To mark this anniversary, the luxury menswear company has launched the Ermenegildo Zegna Monterubello Power Reserve, a fitting celebration of half a decade in the watch business. An exclusive new limited-edition timepiece, only 50 of its kind will be made.
The most arresting feature of the Ermenegildo Zegna Monterubello Power Reserve is the striking cocoa bean colored dial that is accented by the use of pink gold for the case, the applied numerals, and the sword hands that lend a further touch of boldness to the dial. With its slim profile, the 38mm case diameter and the elegance of the Breguet numerals, the Monterubello Power Reserve is the quintessence of understated wearability.
This limited edition watch is further characterized by the sub seconds dial at 9 o’clock on the dial – harmoniously mirroring the circular date window at three o’clock. This dial configuration creates space for a power reserve function at five o’clock. The crystal case back allows the owner to appreciate the Girard Perregaux movement. The strap, cut from the finest Mississippi, dyed to a shade to match to the dial and with cocoa bean colored thread, is backed in alligator.
