Zenith - Swiss watch manufactory with over 150 years of existence
In Le Colce, Switzerland, the watch manufactory Zenith was founded in the middle of the 19th century. At that time it was still known under the name "Fabrique des Billodes". After the completion of a successful movement, the then still young founder of the company looked into the starry sky and was reminded by the celestial mechanics of the play of the wheels of a movement. According to legend, this moment was the origin of the name, Zenith, for the Swiss watch manufacturer, which became more and more successful in the following years. In 1999, Zenith joined TAG Heuer, the French luxury goods manufacturer Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton S.A., together with TAG Heuer.
