How can I obtain certification that my watch and its components originate from Zenith?
Our team of specialists is available to conduct a detailed analysis of your watch and to determine on this basis, along with information from the Archives of the Manufacture, the extent to which its components are the original ones. If such is the case, your watch will be returned to you accompanied by a Certificate of Origin, providing a portrait of your watch based on a detailed description of its model, its functions, its calibre, its case, its dial and its production date (in light of the information available in the Archives and an in-depth examination of your timepiece by our specialists). Wherever possible, this certificate is accompanied by reproductions of historical catalogue extracts or vintage adverts corresponding to your watch model.
How long does it take to make a single El Primero watch?

What precautionary measures can I take to safeguard my watch from potential damage?
• Keep the watch away from all types of magnetic fields (computer screen, TV, clock radio, etc.)
• Do not expose the watch to heat sources
• Do not use the chronograph hand as a central sweep seconds hand (in constant motion)
• Before any contact with water, ensure that the crown is properly pushed in against the case
• After bathing in the sea, systematically rinse the watch in fresh water
• Avoid wearing the watch when pursuing sports that will have a “violent” effect on the movement (golf, tennis, horse-riding, etc.)
• On a chronograph model, do not operate the pushers when the watch is immersed in water
Zenith exists to inspire individuals to pursue their dreams and make them come true – against all odds. Since its establishment in 1865, Zenith became the first watch manufacture in the modern sense of the term, and its watches have accompanied extraordinary figures that dreamt big and strived to achieve the impossible – from Louis Blériot’s history-making flight across the English Channel to Felix Baumgartner’s record-setting stratospheric free-fall jump.
With innovation as its guiding star, Zenith features exceptional in-house developed and manufactured movements in all its watches. From the first automatic chronograph, the El Primero, to the fastest chronograph with a 1/100th of a second precision, the El Primero 21, as well as the Inventor that reinvents the regulating organ by replacing the 30+ components with a single monolithic element, the manufacture is always pushing the boundaries of what's possible. Zenith has been shaping the future of Swiss watchmaking since 1865, accompanying those who dare to challenge themselves and break barriers. The time to reach your star is now.
