The Zenith brand was founded in 1865 by Georges Favre-Jacot. At the young age of 22, Georges Favre-Jacot had a brilliant vision of bringing all artisan watchmakers together, to work under the same roof and dedicate their time entirely to creating timepieces. His company grew quickly and by 1875 he employed over 1,000 people. He became the first watch making manufacturer of his time, thus changing the future of the watch industry forever.
Zenith is one of the few Swiss watch companies that still manufacture their own components and mechanical movements from start to finish-and they do it in the same location they have been for the past 145 years. Zenith has established a reputation for mechanical excellence and precision, which has won them over 1,500 First Place industry awards to date.
Presently the luxury of Zenith watches extends to four collections, Academy, El Primero, Elite, and the Ladies collection. All collections are instruments that exude excellence, performance and style.
