History of Zenith Watches

For more than 150 years, Zenith has left behind a remarkable trail watchmaking wisdom and heritage. In 1865, Swiss watchmaker, Georges Favre-Jacot established  his company, in a town called Le Locle. It is suspected that Favre-Jacot chose to name the brand “Zenith,” after the development of a timepiece that exuded sensational quality. We admire a a five-point star that rightfully stands as the company’s notable logo. The name, “Zenith” paired with such a prestigious logo, perfectly represents the brand’s desire to design fine timepieces of unparalleled quality.

Favre-Jacot commonly directed his attention to the production of pocket watches during his early years. He called upon the most esteemed names in the watchmaking industry to join him in business in order to gain independence from third-party manufacturers.

It wasn’t long before Zenith began releasing ultra-precise watch movements that later participated in the Neuchâtel Observatory’s chronometer competition. The company won several times in 1903. Favre-Jacot deicded to part from the company in 1911, passing the prestigious name down to his nephew, James Favre. From year 2000 to the present, Zenith earned its place in the luxury goods concern, LVMH.

Not only did Zenith succeed in the making of premium pocket watches, the brand also produced an abundance of desk clocks. It wasn’t until early in the 20th century that they presented one of the first wristwatches with the highly sought-after alarm function. This development neighbored the release of several pilot’s watches that were intended for use in the First World War.

Chronograph complications have played an integral part of this manufacturer’s pristine stockpile for nearly a 100 years. Even to this day, the signature El Primero caliber is Zenith’s most highly-coveted watch model. As the world’s first automatic chronograph movement, the Zenith El Primero has been unwaveringly and accurately keeping time since 1969.
