In 1865, Zenith was founded as a “manufacture”, gathering the full range of watchmaking professions under one roof. The brand has constantly played a pioneering role in developing and producing precise, reliable and complex timepieces.
From onboard instruments to wristwatches and pocket-watches, Zenith has filed over 300 patents in the course of its rich history, with a regularity worthy of a finely crafted timepiece. Over the decades, the brand has built up an impressive array of more than 600 movement variations entirely developed and produced within its Manufacture – a rare feat indeed.
The brand is indeed the most titled ever in the field of precision, having won no less than 2,333 chronometry prizes to date.Created in 1969, El Primero is the first automatic integrated chronograph ever, also enabling exceptional 1/10th of a second precision, the equivalent of 36,000 vibrations per hour. Over 40 years later, it remains the world’s most precise series-made calibre.
Impelled by its creative boldness and its longstanding determination to unite the full range of watchmaking skills within its Manufacture, Zenith will continue writing some of the finest chapters in the epic adventures of watchmaking for many decades to come.
