TON-UP is a very interesting watch. Zenith uses the design of the pilot’s watch and combines it with the tradition of vintage motorcycle racing. The old-made steel case makes it look like a piece. Like a watch worn for decades! Its design was inspired by the English ‘Coffee Knight’ cycling movement that began in the 1920s. Young and rebellious cycling enthusiasts are eager for a fast motorcycle (up to 160 km / h) that can be tailored to personal requirements, allowing them to run from cafe to cafe on the roads of Britain. To this end, they abandon all the burdens on their motorcycles that they don’t consider useful, and prepare for the engine to reach maximum power. Their single-seaters have very low handlebars and are rugged, streamlined, practical and ready to go. The term ‘TON-UP’ means that the minimum speed that these riders must reach when returning to a cafe after leaving a cafe for a specific destination is 100 km / h.
