Zenith Jumbo 18k
In 1865, 22-year-old watchmaker Georges Favre-Jacot set up his own factory in the Swiss part of Neuchâtel. His drive to make exceptional timers with the best craftsmanship was reflected in a name synonymous with success and strength: Zenith. For the past 148 years, Zenith made beautiful hand-made timepieces at the same location. Clearly, due to great talent, Favre-Jacot was the first watchmaker to bring all parts of watchmaking under one roof. Today, Zenith is one of the few timepieces that makes its products entirely in-house.
Mahatma Gandhi, the father of Indian nationalism, used a Zenith timepiece. The same timepiece (a pocket watch) was sold in 2009 during an auction in New York for more than 2 million dollars.
Roald Amundsen, an explorer from Norway, was the first person to reach both the South Pole and the North Pole in the early twentieth century and wore a Zenith watch during his expeditions.
This Zenith is made of rose gold, something that was done much less often than now. Look at the patina of the watch…..the shape of the hands, size little bigger as usual for those days…inshort..apiece of beautiful history, waiting for new adventures.
