CARING FOR YOUR WATCH


Each Zenith watch is equipped with a mechanical movement, designed and manufactured to the highest standards of excellence and quality. To preserve these attributes, we recommend regular maintenance of your timepiece. To take advantage of this, simply drop off your watch at one of our stores or at an official retailer. You can also send it to the Zenith service center of your choice. Be sure to protect your watch and accompany it, if possible, with the original warranty card or any valid proof of purchase. Please ensure that any shipments are secure.
