Mans quest for speed
LS-1 Landspeed is powered by the mighty Valjoux 7750 Swiss automatic movement giving it an impeccable time and chronograph function. Presented in a “Bulls Head” configuration, LS-1 has a stopwatch feel harking back to the dashboard mounted timing watches seen on speed record and racing cars of the era.
The main body is machined from billet 316L stainless steel and finished in matt black PVD with straight barrel knurl and brushed top chamfer. The backplate and lugs are billet machined from a single piece of 316L stainless steel which is then mirror polished to create a beautifully sculpted cradle for the body to nest into. Time adjustment is by an oversize diamond knurled and dome topped crown and the chrono function pushers are sculpted into the cradle to accentuate the flowing three-dimensional form of LS-1.
The dial has a contemporary feel with balanced vintage design. A satin steel index ring frames the ink black dial, which features white numerals in SuperLuminova X1 pigment along with the matt steel hour and minute hand.
LS-1 is fitted with a Zero West leather strap which is hand crafted in our workshop. The result is a rugged, vintage feeling strap that will develop a lovely patina over time.
Delivery on all orders is now late April. This is to allow sufficient time for building/quality control and to fulfill all existing orders to the high standard Zero West prides itself on.
