About the Brand

Founded in 1865 by the visionary watchmaker Georges Favre-Jacot, the Manufacture houses some 80 watchmaking professions beneath its roof. Whether exponents of the more artistic crafts or of ultra-technical skills, all are engaged in the task undertaken by Georges Favre-Jacot 150 years ago: that of mastering each gesture to enable free-spirited creation of mechanical marvels combining noble watchmaking traditions with avant-garde innovations. Famed for its legendary 1969 El Primero calibre enabling short-time measurements accurate to the nearest 1/10th of a second, Zenith has since developed over 600 movement variations.

About the Collection

The Respirator was one of Zenith’s signature lines in the late 1960s and early 1970s. Its square shape was distinctive. Same goes for its case design, which consisted of a two-piece case. The upper piece sat on a seal and became tighter against the base piece as the pressure increased. The watch came with an automatic caliber and a vast array of dial configurations, but the chocolate tone one is a collector’s favorite.
