    The Zenith Academy Christophe Colomb Hurricane (www.zenith-watches.com) solves three mechanical timekeeping problems. The $280,000 watch’s gimbaled balance, which floats under the domed crystal, eliminates gravity errors, while its high frequency provides improved precision. The Hurricane also features a chain-and-fusee system that maintains accuracy as the mainspring winds down.
