About

Zenith SA is a Swiss luxury watchmaker. The company established in Le Locle, in the canton of Neushatel, in 1865; by Georges Favre-Jacot, who was 22 at the time. Zenith was purchased by LVMH in November 1999, becoming one of several brands in its watch and jewelry division, which includes also TAG Heuer and Hublot. Zenith is one of the Swiss watch manufacturers that still produce their own movements in-house. George Favre-Jacot (1843-1917) was an apprentice within the watchmaking industry while still a youth. Later in life, Favre-Jacot had commissioned famous architect Le Corbusier to build a house for himself in Le Locle. He was also closely involved with another prominent architect of the era, Alfonse Laverriere, the relationship with whom was the source of influence upon the Werkbund movement. The two men collaborated with a shared artistic vision of the nature of production, to the extent to which they themselves somewhat reformed the artistic situation within francophone Switzerland at the time. Dimensions: Height 5.-1/2 inches Width 7-7/16 inches Depth 7-7/16 inches.
