A world leader in high-quality products, LVMH Louis Vuitton-Moët Hennessy possesses a unique portfolio of over 60 prestigious brands. The Group is active in five different sectors: Wines & Spirits, Fashion & Leather Goods, Perfumes & Cosmetics, Watches & Jewelry, and Selective retailing. LVMH currently has around 100,000 employees, almost 80% of who are based outside France. Zenith, which belongs to the Group’s Watches & Jewelry division, was created in 1865 by a visionary watchmaker in Le Locle, Georges Favre-Jacot. The Manufacture Zenith is located in Le Locle, Switzerland, in the exact spot where its founder built his first workshop. In its early years, it earned swift recognition for the precision of its chronometers, for which it has won 2,333 precision timing prizes in almost a century and a half – an absolute record encompassing pocket watches, onboard watches and wristwatches.
Today, Zenith is a globally recognized and highly regarded watchmaking brand, active in over 50 countries around the world. Zenith designs and develops its own movements (of which it currently has 600 variations), making it part of a highly selective circle of prestigious Swiss watch “Manufactures”. Not content with simply recreating the past, Zenith has always placed innovation and precision at the core of its activities. From the legendary El Primero calibre, the first high-frequency automatic integrated column-wheel chronograph movement launched in 1969, to the El Primero 21 1/100th of a second chronograph and the revolutionary Zenith Oscillator, Zenith is creating the future of watchmaking. All this wouldn’t be possible without the talents of the individuals and teams across all levels of the brand.
At Zenith, the human element is at the core of our brand’s values. Through our unique legacy and forward-looking trajectory, our collaborators and team members share the following values:
Zenith prides itself on being a truly honest and authentic brand, building its reputation on technical perfection. The brand’s history is grounded in equality and perfect craftsmanship, true to its past and the people who have created the Zenith story.
