A few months ago at Baselworld 2014, Zenith unveiled a new update to the Captain Power Reserve. It’s an elegant package with a clean display that comes in a few outstanding colorways, and it is one of the more affordable watch in Zenith’s arsenal. Inside if one of Zenith’s in-house Elite calibers and the looks make it a flexible daily-wear option.
At first glance, this watch has a lot going for it. The slim case is 40mm across and admirably thin at 9.25mm. The thin bezel gives way to a domed sapphire crystal that gives you an extremely clear view of the dial. It’s a little reflective, which can be frustrating in bright light, but overall it’s very clean looking.
