ZRC, in keeping with its motto “Life is Adventure”, supports expeditions initiated by enthusiasts around the globe. With its GF41208SO reference, the brand champions Back to Campana led by Frenchman Frédéric Presles. His goal? To follow the itinerary taken by La Delphine, a ship that sunk in 1840 on the desert island of Campana. To reach this hostile land, his crew set sail from Chiloé Island then pursued its route between the Furious Fifties and the Roaring Forties, along the Chilean Patagonia Coast, then navigated without any instruments, without seabed mapping to rediscover the fauna and flora of this geography that had been forgotten since 1840. The GF 300 1964 Spirit South Adventure stands out with its tropicalized dial boasting gradient-toned sepia hues reminiscent of those on a map of buried treasure.

To tackle the harshness of the weather conditions encountered, every detail was imagined to optimize the watch’s sturdiness. In a nutshell, its 41.5 mm mono-block case and its crown at 6 o’clock feature outstanding waterproofness to depths of 1,000 meters. Time data is driven by the Sellita SW-200-1 caliber, in its advanced version. This Swiss Made selfwinding mechanical movement, beating at a standard frequency of 28,800 vibrations an hour (4 Hz), delivers a power reserve of at least 38 hours. And, just like all the Grands Fonds, this model, rolled out in just 100 pieces, embraces the brand’s latest innovations.
