"ZENITH: TIME TO REACH YOUR STAR"
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, and its watches have accompanied extraordinary figures that 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 in-house developed and manufactured movements in all its watches. From the first automatic chronograph, the El Primero, to the fastest chronograph with a 1/100th of a second precision, the El Primero 21, as well as the Inventor that reinvents the regulating organ by replacing the 30+ components with a single monolithic element, the manufacture is always pushing the boundaries of what's possible. 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.
Crafting the future of watchmaking.
The Zenith DEFY collection of watches for men and women is the epitome of Zenith's endless pursuit of precision through innovation.
Combining cutting-edge manufacture movements with futuristic forms and materials, the DEFY collection continues Zenith's legacy of always surpassing itself and setting new standards of performance and style.
The Chronomaster collection showcases the Manufacture's mastery of the automatic high-frequency chronograph movement and the unique design language it established in over 50 years.
From faithful reproductions of its most emblematic references from the 1960s and 1970s to reaching new levels of precision with the 1/10 th of a second function in the evolved version of the famed calibre, the Chronomaster collection bridges the past and present of the most prized automatic chronograph ever made.
Born during the dawn of man’s earliest flights over a century ago,
Zenith’s watchmaking heritage in the world of aviation is unrivalled, having created the very first “Pilot Watch” and even trademarking the term in 1904, and has remained the only watch brand with the rights to bear the term “Pilot” on its dials.
The modern Zenith Pilot collection pays tribute to the extraordinary pioneering spirit of the time, built for the adventurers of today.
