About Zenith:

Zenith was established in 1865 by Georges Favre-Jacot, in Le Locle, in Neuchâtel in Switzerland. Zenith is an extreme luxury brand of a caliber, and quality similar to Rolex, Omega and the top 10 luxury watch brands.

In 1999, Zenith was purchased by the French luxury goods conglomerate LVMH (Louis Vuitton/Moët Hennessy) and Zenith has been a subsidiary of that company ever since.

Zenith has a long history of watchmaking dating back to 1865. Zenith has developed more than 600 different movements and has received over 300 patents. Zenith has won well over 2,000 chronometry prizes in accuracy and precision!

To my knowledge, Zenith is the only Swiss luxury wristwatch brand which uses mechanical/automatic movements that beat at a frequency of 36,000 vibrations per hour! This is significant because such a high rate of vibrations per hour usually entails a highly (even extremely) accurate automatic/mechanical movement.

Zenith belongs to the absolute elite of Swiss luxury watchmakers – no question about it. Some earlier Rolex watches actually used Zenith movements, which is a testimony to the importance of Zenith.

As far as ranking is concerned, I’d place Zenith among the world’s top 10 luxury wristwatch brands.

About Zenith Defy Xtreme:

If you want the very best (and extreme) divers watches that Zenith can offer you, you should go with Zenith Defy Xtreme.

Like the name suggests, Zenith Defy Xtreme truly is extreme! In fact – extreme in every way imaginable: You’ll find these watches in the $6,000-$90,000 price range – there is a very large variation in prices.

Several of the models are equipped with a tourbillon – a mechanical device used to counteract Earth’s gravity’s effect on the accuracy of the watch movement – a device only used in extreme luxury watches.

The Zenith Defy Xtreme watches have an open dial, which means you can actually see parts and components of the watch’s beating heart.

The design of Zenith Defy Xtreme is truly unorthodox – resembles nothing of what the more traditional brands such as Rolex, IWC, Omega, Breitling or Jaeger LeCoultre can offer you.

Most Swiss luxury brands use stainless steel. The Zenith Defy Xtreme uses titanium only – which is a considerably more expensive metal, but it’s also a metal of considerably lighter weight.

The water resistance level of Zenith Defy Xtreme is 1,000 meters/3,300 feet.
