Zenith Watches – Incomparable Precision

At the beginning of the early 18th century, a miraculous new era began for the Swiss village of Le Locle in the canton of Neuchâtel. The industry of Agriculture began promoting the Pocket Watch gradually to compete. Until Georges Favre-Jacot in 1865 at the age of just 22 years opened his Fabrique of Bill Odes it took, but at least this step Le Locle had become final watchmaking cradle of the Swiss. A title the small city keeps until today.

According to Timedictionary, Favre-Jacot first manufactured precision pocket watch which he gave his name lettering. Quickly he proved not only tremendous craftsmanship, but also commercial foresight. On his initiative, for the first time all trades of watchmaking under one roof were United. The first real factory was founded. in 1899, Favre-Jacot published the first pocket watch chronographs. While he designed a new movement came one evening the thought that this works as perfectly as the celestial mechanics.
