Description

When he established his brand in 1865, George Favre-Jacot gave rise to the first integrated watch manufacture in Switzerland.  His concept was to connect workshops to the train station of Le Locle for a direct supply of raw materials for production. By the early 20th century, his watchmaking site already counted up to 2000 workers.  In 1900, at the Paris Universal Exhibition, Zenith was awarded the Grand Prix for the Zenith caliber, which prompted the manufacturer to adopt it as the company name.

Zenith is most known for its El Primero movement, named for its position as the first automatic chronograph.  Forever connected to that movement is Charles Vermot, who played a pivotal role in Zenith’s legacy. One of the original watchmakers who worked on the El Primero movement when it was unveiled 50 years ago, Vermot was appalled by the decision of management to destroy all of the El Primero watch making machinery at the time of the quartz crisis.  Defying his superiors, Vermot took it upon himself to protect the El Primero for future generations, in the hope that one day Zenith would bring the exceptional movement back into production. In total secrecy, Charles Vermot gathered all the technical plans and tools necessary to produce each and every component of the El Primero movement and hid them in a walled-off section of the Zenith manufacturer’s attic.  Years later when Rolex and others came looking for an automatic chronograph movement, Zenith was ready.

Zenith continues to offer exceptional watches that reference those early days of success as well as to build upon the legacy of its most successful models.
