Characteristics of Zenith
Since its inception in 1865, Zenith continues to encapsulate extraordinary feats by supplying historical figures with their high-precision wristwatches accompanied on the wrist of Louis Blériot's historic saga flight across the English Channel to Felix Baumgartner's unparalleled stratospheric free-fall jump. Nestled within the renowned Swiss watchmaking region of Neuchâtel, Switzerland, in the town of Le Locle, Zenith further perpetuates its tendency for chronometric precision instruments through the union of the expertise and master production techniques helmed by its founder Georges Favre-Jacot. Zenith's everlasting pursuit of innovation has galvanized the brand to equip each timepiece with exclusively developed in-house mechanical movements.
Popular Zenith Watch Collections
Synonymous with the swinging sixties, Zenith's Defy collection features retro, ultramodern models for both gentlemen and ladies. It is distinguished for its multifaceted, tonneau-shaped case, produced in fastidiously satin-brushed and polished steel, titanium, gold, and monochromatic ceramic that effortlessly unites the geometric motifs of the striking case with its integrated bracelets. The Chronomaster collection is horological mastery admired by men and women alike. Renowned for its tri-colored chronograph sub-dials, this medley of wristwatches employs the brand's coveted El Primero automatic movement. This high-frequency collection, introduced in 1969, continues in an array of variations, each sporting a heartbeat of 36,000 vph and column-wheel mechanisms offering unparalleled reliability and accuracy.
Capturing a blend of arched contours, curved lines, and elegant proportions, the Elite collection encompasses sophistication, refinement, and timeless chic. Zenith unites smooth surfaces and textured lined cases in various precious metals that capture the subtly between light and shadow. The sunburst-ornamented dial, encircled by a distinguished seconds track, employs svelte dauphine hands powered by Zenith's automatic manufactured movement providing superlative precision for gentlemen and ladies. The Pilot collection, designed for globe-trotting watch enthusiasts, inherits a vintage-inspired configuration. A circular case with wire-lugs, produced in weathered materials, affixed with onion-shaped crowns and dial accents emphasize the majestic and uniquely stylized luminous Arabic numerals and slender hands for optimal readability.
