Zenith watches have been the preferred timepieces for many distinguished men throughout history, including father of Indian independence Mahatma Gandhi and conqueror of North Pole and South Pole Roald Amundsen and more recently Felix Baumgartner wore a Zenith watch when he jumped from the stratosphere to beat three records from that height best casual watches.
Zenith is a Swiss company that has been making luxury watches since 1865. Over the years, its watches have become synonymous with quality, precision, and reliability. It has won more than 1,400 watch-making and timing awards, over 98% of which are first prizes. This truly reflects its great commitment to excellence in the field of watch-making. Every Zenith watch is constructed from start to finish at the Zenith manufacturing facility in Le Locle, Switzerland.
Zenith has been responsible for many breakthrough innovations in the manufacturing of watches, including the integrated self-winding column-wheel chronograph movement, the use of dry lubricant to ensure long-term stability and the optimization of power reserve to match frequency levels that are higher and consume more energy. Today, the company is one of the few remaining watch manufacturers in Switzerland that still have in-house movement production facilities. One of its greatest creations is the El Primero, which is presently the most accurate series-manufactured movement in the world. While most other watches produce a maximum of 8 vibrations per second, this amazing movement can perform 10 vibrations per second. Zenith has thus far created 180 different movements altogether, and they have been interpreted in about 500 variations.
Zenith watches do not only provide the most precise timekeeping; they are also built to last a lifetime. They are made of the finest and toughest materials, and they can withstand the most extreme conditions without losing accuracy. The Zenith chronograph watch has served people who are in the aviation industry and the navy, as well as those who undertake great exploratory missions, and it has never failed to impress. Another reason why Zenith watches are so highly sought after is because they feature a timeless design. Their elegance and prestige set them apart from other watches that are available in the market, and they are widely regarded as the top men’s watches.
