All About Zenith Watches
Zenith was founded by Favre- Jacot when he was 22. He had a house-made for him specifically by an architect to pursue his passion in watchmaking. He started making watches in his name inspired by rich American companies. Zenith was formed after nerve-wracking hard work and a lot of self-investment. The Zenith El Primero movement, which brought a groundbreaking change in the production of watches paved a novel way in Zenith.
