Zenith was founded by the 22 year-old George Favre Jacot in 1865. He started a factory where watch parts were made with machines to such tolerances, that they were fully interchangeable. By doing this, Zenith was one of the forerunners of the industrialisation of the Swiss watch industry at the end of the 18th century. In 1911, he was looking for a name for a newly developed movement. He looked up to the night sky full of stars and noted that the stars looked like the interacting parts in a watch movement. In astronomy, “Zenith” is the highest point in the sky seen from the earth. Since his new movement was superior in may fields he decided he would name it “Zenith”. Later the company was named Zenith and the five pointed star was chosen as the company logo. Zenith is nowadays mainly known for the development of the automatic chronograph “El Primero” in the 1960’s. Aside from that they made a wide array of very high quality watches, but in smaller quantities than many of the other well known manufacturers.

This Zenith is the perfect dress watch. The classic round case has sharp lugs and is 18ct yellow gold. The dial is domed and has a sunburst vintage pattern and applied indexes which follow the curvature of the dial. The movement is the in-house caliber Zenith 2542PC. This movement has some nice features like a instantaneous date change at midnight, a crown wheel with ball-bearing and a ruby jewel as rotor bearing to prevent wear. The crown bears the five pointed start Zenith logo.
