Zenith maintenance and care tips

MAGNETIC FIELDS

Keep the ZENITH watch away from  magnetic fields (computer screen, TV, clock radio, etc.) If your ZENITH becomes magnetised, we can demagnetise it using our specialist equipment. Quartz watches will recalibrate within five minutes. However, mechanical watches can suffer long-term damage.

TEMPERATURE

Do not expose the ZENITH watch to heat sources. Watches that suffer hot temperature shocks tend to run slow. Watches which are exposed to cool temperature shocks run fast. When not wearing your watch store it in a safe place to avoid damage.

AVOID WATER AND DUST DAMAGE

Before any contact with water, ensure that the crown on your ZENITH watch is properly pushed in against the case. Water damage can be dangerous for luxury watches and greatly affect their function. If you notice condensation under the case, this is a sign of water infiltration. Send it immediately for Zenith watch repair.

After bathing in the sea, systematically rinse the watch in freshwater. Saltwater corrodes the internal workings, bracelet and Zenith strap. Chlorinated water also has this effect.

WATCH SHOCKS AND VIBRATIONS

Avoid wearing the ZENITH 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. This will lead to the infiltration of water, which damages the mechanism.

STEEL BRACELET

When wearing a steel bracelet, over time, dust and sweat builds on the strap. This can be remedied with gentle washing in a solution of lukewarm water and liquid soap. Before your watch is anywhere near water ensures, the crown is fully depressed to stop the infiltration of water. Dry your timepiece with a soft cloth or let it air dry. It should never be dried on the radiator or with a hairdryer. If you are concerned about cleaning your own watch, send it to Repairs by Post for professional watch cleaning and watch polishing.

History of Zenith watches

The 1860S

Zenith Watches was founded in 1865 by Georges Favre-Jacot at the young age of 22. He revolutionised watch production by unifying the whole watchmaking process under one roof. This is where watch manufacturing was born. Over the decades, the brand has built up an impressive array of more than 600 movement variations entirely developed and produced within its Manufacture.

The 1890S

The brand launched its first chronograph pocket watch in 1899. A chronograph is essentially a stopwatch. They are a time-keeping device which has an independent second hand which can start and stop without interfering with the time-keeping ability of the watch. We are experts in chronograph watch repair.

The 1900S

The brand wins gold at the Paris Universal Exhibition. During the 1900s the brand continued to innovate, creating the onboard instruments. The brand has had no less than 300 patents in its rich history.

The 1910S

The name “Zenith” is established by George Favrot-Jacot. The meaning of this refers to the highest point of success. The brand has been aspiring towards this metaphor ever since. To ensure your watch is working to its optimum level, send it for a Zenith watch service periodically.

The 1920S

The Zenith brand continues to grow with its Manufacture employing over 1,000 staff. It was nicknamed as having silver and gold hands thanks to the high quality of work produced.

The 1970S

During 1975 a decision was made by the company owners that the brand should only produce quartz watches. Watchmaker Charles Vermont hid the tools and plans needed to craft mechanical calibres to save them from being destroyed.

The 1980S

By 1984 the demand for mechanical watches is revived, and Vermont returns the hidden plans to Zenith. The production of the award-winning El Primero was reinstated, and globally recognised watch brands clamoured to equip their watches with the infamous movement.

The 1990S

In 1994 Zenith created their first calibre using Computer-Aided Design (CAD). The Elite movement won awards for its slenderness, precision and reliability.

The 2000S

In the year 2000 Zenith joins the LVMH group, a luxury goods conglomerate. Christian Dior is the majority holding of this group.

In 2003 Zenith create stunning models that reveal the inner components of the El Primero calibre. This allows the user to see the visible oscillation of the balance wheel. The dial was not just exposed; a whole new calibre was created for the open escapements.

The 2010S

In 2010 the El Primero Striking 10th model was launched. This design shows the sweep second-hand displaying tenths of a second.

In 2011 Zenith is award “Best Complicated Watch Prize” to the Academy Christophe Colomb Équation du Temp model. The watch includes;

  • Hours
  • Minutes
  • Power Reserve Indicator at 3 o’clock
  • Equation of time
  • “Gravity Control” Self-Regulating Gyroscopic Module
  • El Primero 8808 calibre

2012 sees Zenith collaborate with the aviation industry with their Pilot collection. The Pilot Big Date Special wins that year’s Geneva Watchmaking Grand Prix.
