Zenith was born in 1865, the vision of a 22-year old named Georges Favre-Jacot. He created the concept of a Manufacture by bringing all the artisan watchmakers, that used to work from their homes, under the same roof thus immensely improving quality control and cutting design and manufacturing times.
Georges Favre-Jacot would name his company and brand Zenith from a vision of a gigantic constellation turning around the Pole star, similar in its complexity to the movements of the pivots and the wheels on their axes.
To Georges Favre-Jacot the word Zenith was the highest point in the universe, and so, he would adopted the star as a symbol of his destiny
, a shining good luck charm, a celestial guide towards a promising destiny;
Zenith would garner 1565 awards, create over 50 mythical calibres and build branches throughout the world, from New York to Paris, from Moscow to Tokyo.
Zenith has kept their reputation for the quality and precision. Zenith is one of the few Swiss watch brands that make their own mechanical movements.
The El Primero (chronograph) is still one of the best movements ever made. Rolex utilized the El Primero chronograph movement in their Daytona Chronographs.
The El Primero movement has a frequency of 36,000 alternations per hour. This high rate allows a resolution of 1/10th of a second and a potential for greater positional accuracy over the more typical chronometer frequency of 28,000 alt per hour.
