Founded in 1865 by Georges Favre-Jacot, Zenith became one of the most prestigious Swiss Watch Manufacture notably due to the development of the legendary El Primero movement. For over 146 years, the values of the Zenith Manufacture have been precision, reliability and pioneer spirit. From this obsession with precision Zenith acquires 2’333 Chronometry Prices and 8 medals, 297 patents were created and more than 500 movement variations were developed. For Only Watch 2011, the Manufacture Zenith will introduce two exclusive models with left-hand winding. Why the inversion? Like Leonardo da Vinci, one in ten people are left-handed, and the proportion varies considerably between various countries, reaching as much as one-quarter of the population in some cases. It is for them that these two models are specifically designed. Both models house the legendary El Primero calibre - the name that puts a sparkle in the eye of watch devotees the world over. Launched by Zenith in 1969, this movement is quite simply the world's most accurate series-produced mechanical calibre beating at 36'000 VpH and capable to measure the tenth of second.
