This Swiss company, founded in 1865, is not only one of the oldest horological companies, but one of a handful that still produces its own mechanical movements. Zenith was founded by Georges Favre-Jacot, who, at the age of 22, was one of the first watchmakers to understand the importance of the principle of interchangeable parts. Until 1911 the factory produced watches under the brand of Georges Favre-Jacot. In 1911 the founder has renamed the company, giving the name of the most difficult of the mechanisms created by him- ZENITH.The company has produced many watches especially for Russia, where they were in great demand. By the time Jacot retired in 1929, Zenith had made watch history, winning grand prix medals for timekeeping precision at international expositions in Geneva, Paris, Barcelona, and Neufshatel. Since its foundation, the Zenith Company remained faithful to the spirit of creating the most precise movements, as initiated by Georges Favre-Jacot. But as you know, sometimes it maybe 5-10 days delay for the reasons of the flights and custom issues.
