WHO THEY ARE Founded in 1865 by Swiss watch­maker Ge­orges Favre-Ja­cot, who brought to­gether ar­ti­san watch­mak­ers at his man­u­fac­ture. CLAIM TO FAME In 1969, the brand in­tro­duced its rev­o­lu­tion­ary El Primero move­ment, the world’s first au­to­matic chrono­graph move­ment that op­er­ates at 36,000 vi­bra­tions per hour. Over the years, Zenith has won 1,565 awards and pro­duced over 50 cal­i­bres. WHAT’S HOT The Acad­emy Christophe Colomb Hur­ri­cane, which houses a gy­ro­scopic es­cape­ment to en­sure op­ti­mum pre­ci­sion re­gard­less of the po­si­tion of the watch, as well as a fusee-and-chain trans­mis­sion sys­tem that guar­an­tees con­stant torque for un­du­lat­ing pre­ci­sion.
