Zenith

Ever since its foundation by Georges Favre-Jacot in 1865, Zenith’s Swiss manufacture has consistently produced calibres and timepieces of legendary status. The brand has filed more than 300 patents in its long history, and its movements have been awarded well over 2,000 prizes.

Modern Zenith luxury watches are the culmination of a mechanical evolution that has stood the tests of time and scrutiny. The El Primo calibre, Zenith’s calling card and the powerhouse inside its most celebrated watches, is the first integrated automatic chronograph, and still the most precise movement ever made in series.

In 1909, airborne adventurer Louis Bleriot flew across the English Channel. He was the first pilot ever to do so - and he did it wearing a Zenith watch. Bleriot’s Zenith Special is now a symbol of a luxury watch brand whose history has been intimately associated with extraordinary accomplishments.

His mission: to become the first human to break the sound barrier with his own body. Jumping with him - and successfully shattering that barrier - was his Zenith El Primero Stratos Striking 10th.
