Founded in 1865 by Georges Favre-Jacot, who revolutionized the way of producing timepieces. Zenith is the first watch company with a manufacture that houses all aspects of watchmaking under one roof. It is also the first brand to have developed, in 1969, a high-frequency automatic integrated column-wheel chronograph powered by the legendary El Primero movement beating at 36,000 vibrations per hour. Passing on ancestral skills in order to forge the future of Swiss watchmaking.
With its new disruptive "Zenith Oscillator" control system, Zenith is revolutionising mechanical watchmaking. High frequency, chronometric precision, reliability and stability: the oscillator developed and patented by the Manufacture replaces the traditional sprung balance used for more than three centuries!
