Zenith exists to inspire individuals to pursue their dreams and make them come true – against all odds. Since its establishment in 1865, Zenith became the first watch manufacture in the modern sense of the term. Its watches have accompanied extraordinary figures who dreamt big and strived to achieve the impossible – from Louis Blériot’s history-making flight across the English Channel to Felix Baumgartner’s record-setting stratospheric free-fall jump.
With innovation as its guiding star, Zenith features exceptional movements in all its watches, developed and manufactured in-house. The Manufacture continually pushes the boundaries of the possible, from the first automatic chronograph, the El Primero, to the El Primero 21, the fastest chronograph with 1/100th of a second precision, and the Inventor, which reinvents the regulating organ by replacing the 30 plus components with a single monolithic element. Zenith has been shaping the future of Swiss watchmaking since 1865, accompanying those who dare to challenge themselves and break barriers. The time to reach your star is now.
IconThe first automatic chronograph movement in history with an accuracy of 1/10th of a second, the El Primero movement was released in 1969, becoming an emblematic milestone in watchmaking that has won countless awards. Over forty years later, Zenith timepieces are still equipped with this caliber and its extraordinary mechanism.
