With its establishment in 1865, Zenith became the first watch manufacturer in the modern sense. From Louis Blériot's historic flight across the English Channel to Felix Baumgartner's record freefall from the stratosphere, their watches have accompanied extraordinary names who dreamt big and aimed to achieve the impossible. Zenith also features visionary and pioneering women from both the past and the present on their DREAMHERS platform, where women celebrate their success and share their experiences to inspire others to achieve their dreams.
