Those who buy a Zenith watch from any of the collections can look forward to finding the timepiece that showcases their individual tastes.
Zenith watches take inspiration from a wide range of fields. Like the classic Swiss Luxury Watch Makers, Zenith watch designs and features are inspired by the Aviation industry and from those traditional designs that remain a favourite of so many watch collectors.
The company was founded by Georges Favre-Jacot, a man who revolutionised the watch making industry. Having started out as many at the time did, as an apprentice, he would later become the man responsible for uniting all watchmaking professions and as such developed the concept of manufacturing. In 1899, the company released its first pocket chronograph and in 1900 the founder won a gold medal at the Paris Universal Exhibition, cementing his place among the best. By 1925, the company passed the 1000 employee mark and since then Zenith has shown no sign of slowing down.
Designed to be pleasing on the eye while serving its purpose, the watches by Zenith are the result of combined expertise, years of experience and collective knowledge from a team of professionals. The current collections include Defy, Chronomaster, Elite, Pilot, and the 50th El Primero Anniversary. Each collection features a mix of classical designs as well as innovative designs. The function of each watch surpasses the look, and in every way, the features suit the functions.
The Defy collection is an intriguing selection of 4 watches sets and an additional special edition selection of 6. The Defy El Primero 21 consists of 6 models, the Defy Zero G selection has 4 models, the Defy Classic has 13 models and the Defy Inventor has just one model.
