In 1865, George Favre-Jacot, founder of the Zenith watches, had as its sole objective the creation of the most reliable and precise watches ever made. For this, he revolutionized the production of watches by bringing together all the watchmaking trades, in fact it was he who invented the concept of manufacturing. Here is the story of Zenith. The name comes from the highest point of a star in the sky as a symbol of the level of excellence pursued by its creator since the beginning of the brand.
The aim of the Zenith brand is clear, to feed the entrepreneurial spirit and always work to conquer new spaces. In fact, he has contributed to some of the most extraordinary human adventures, such as Felix Baumgartner or has shared history with personalities such as Gandhi.
The Zenith watches collection
There are four collections of Zenith watches. First, the Zenith El Primero collection. In 1962 the first sketches appear on a drawing board, the main objective was to develop an emblematic clock that would see the light in 1965 to celebrate the centenary of the company. It took nine months of work, more than 2,000 operations, 300 expert hands and 18 metals. Secondly, the Zenith Academy collection is the result of five years of hard work and was one of the main advances in watchmaking in the 21st century, the so-called 'Gravity Control' gyroscopic module, a system patented by Zenith. Third, Zenith Elite, its models have a timeless and contemporary elegance. And, in fourth place, Zenith Heritage, classic watches faithful to the Zenith style.
