Zenith is one of the rare watch Manufacturers to have succeeded over the decades in creating timeless watches – naturally including models dedicated to women – for almost 150 years.
The Star collection is enriched this year with three new versions of the Star 33 mm watch, featuring an understated cushion-shaped case housing a delicate mechanism.
Available this year in white or rose gold, including one model entirely set with brilliant-cut diamonds, these new 2014 releases will doubtless appeal to a woman looking for a timepiece that resembles her.
Founded in Le Locle in 1865 by a visionary watchmaker, Georges Favre-Jacot, the Manufacture Zenith earned swift recognition for the precision of its chronometers with which it has won 2,333 chronometry prizes in a century and a half of existence: an absolute record in terms of pocket watches, onboard timers and wristwatches.
Having earned fame thanks to its legendary El Primero calibre – an integrated automatic column-wheel chronograph movement launched in 1969 and endowed with a high frequency of 36,000 vibrations per hour that ensures measurements accurate to the nearest 1/10th of a second – the Manufacture Zenith has since developed over 600 movement variations.
All Zenith watches are fitted with an in-house Zenith movement and are developed by the Manufacture in Le Locle. The latter currently stands at the exact spot where its founder built the first company workshop, thus physically embodying a continuity that is a rarity in itself.
