Elite 691 calibre
More than five years of research and development were needed to elaborate this calibre.
The Chiffre Rouge C03 is equipped with the Elite 691 calibre, an automatic movement offering 3 complications: big date display at 2 o’clock, moon phase indicator at 6 o’clock and small second counter at 9 o’clock.
Reliable, precise and efficient, this extra-flat movement (between 2.84mm and 3.46mm in thickness depending on the versions), launched in 1994, took more than 3 years to develop.
The “Irréductible” calibre is an automatic chronograph movement, chronometer certified (COSC), developed by Zenith for Dior.
Reflecting the excellence of the mechanical movement, the hour markers and hands are refined to the limits of technical tolerance to accentuate the energy driving the movement and the precision of the indications.
It is used on the limited series of the Chiffre Rouge timepieces: Chiffre Rouge I02 and I03.
It measures time to 1/10th of a second, thanks to the balance wheel’s oscillation frequency of 36 000 vibrations per hour (Zenith is one of the only manufactures to offer such a degree of precision in an automatic womens DIOR CHIFFRE ROUGE I02 replica watch).
