Zenith SA is a Swiss watch manufacture started in 1865 by Georges Favre-Jacot at the age of 22, in Le Locle in the canton of Neuchâtel.

Geogres Favre-Jacot began working on a complication that he considered to be very close to perfection. He went out into the night for a walk during the course of this production and felt that the cosmos spoke to him. In his work, Favre Jacot saw the mimicry of the sky and the constellations hung upon it. Seeing the highest star in the sky, he decided to name his collection after the word for this term. The chosen word was Zenith.

Zenith has a long reputation for the quality and precision of their watches. Zenith amassed 1,565 1st-place precision awards as well as more than 50 mythical movements. In 1920, the company created more than two million separate timepieces and opened branches in Geneva, Moscow, Paris, Vienna, London and New York.

The El Primero caliber, which was first released in 1969, though still produced today, was one of the first automatic chronograph movements and has a frequency of 36,000 alternations per hour (5 Hz).  Zenith was one of a few Swiss watch manufacturers that produced their own movements in-house.

This high rate allows a resolution of 1/10 of a second and a potential for greater positional accuracy over the more common standard frequency of 28,800 alternations per hour (4 Hz).
