The Manufacture established by Georges Favre-Jacot definitively adopts the name of Zenith, referring to the highest point reached by a heavenly body in the sky and thereby symbolising the heights of excellence to which the brand with the guiding star has been aspiring ever since.
The Manufacture Zenith employs 1,000 people.
In the watchmaking haven of Le Locle
and its neighbouring town of La Chaux-de-Fonds,
it is nicknamed “the Manufacture with 2,000 gold and silver hands”
For Zenith, 2015 is an important year in that the brand with the guiding star is celebrating its 150th anniversary. An ideal occasion on which to take a panoramic look back across its history, the revolutions it has created and the feats it has accompanied. Also an opportunity to recall that none of this would have been possible without the talent and skill of its artisans, nor without the enterprising spirit cherished by the Manufacture since its beginnings.
