The Manufacture Zenith is proud of its history and makes the most of its rich past in looking to the future. To give the latter true meaning, it constantly infuses it with a determination to innovation. To move ahead better, differently, faster or more accurately: such is the driving force behind all inventors, the people who take their destiny in hand and are impelled by an imperiously enterprising spirit.
Building on this positive momentum, Zenith has written some of the major chapters in watchmaking history. The El Primero calibre, the first integrated automatic chronograph movement and which also beats at a frequency of 36,000 vibrations per hour, has become an icon.
Almost 50 years after its creation, it is still the only series-made chronograph capable of measuring short times to the nearest 1/10th of a second. Closer to home, the advent of the “Gravity Control” gyroscopic module represents one of the major breakthroughs of the 21st century.
Believing in that guiding star. Making mechanical intricacy an ally in aspiring to new horizons and a guide on the path to making dreams come true. Accomplishing a feat, that of a given day or of a lifetime. Reaching ever further, higher and playing a part in every conquest. Constantly reinventing the subtle blend between tradition and the avant-garde.
Passing on ancestral skills in order to forge the future. Fulfilling the destiny of a Fine Watchmaking manufacturer continuously impelled by daring, authenticity and pleasure since 1865.
