Founded in 1865 Zenith have a long history of fine horology, including the El Primero chronograph movement.

The Zenith DEFY Midnight is a (very) early contender for women's collection of the year

The standout from the new Zenith 2020 novelties is hands down the DEFY Midnight collection. What immediately caught my attention was that Zenith were leading their 2020 new releases with a women's collection that appeared — in the preamble — to not only be a new product in itself, with various attributes, but for those attributes to be assembled around a strong concept, albeit a very simple one. And that is, an evocation of the night sky on the dial. Hardly groundbreaking…

Was this Zenith Manga cartoon homage the sleeper hit of 2019?

Lupin the Third, ever heard of it? We hadn't either … that is, until Zenith made this, the A384 Revival Lupin The Third Edition. Turns out, Lupin The Third, or Lupin III as it's otherwise known, is a Japanese manga cartoon created in 1967 by the doyen of the traditional Japanese art form, Monkey Punch. The cartoon follows the escapades of Arsène Lupin III, a master thief and grandson of fictional phantom thief Arsène Lupin. The manga cartoon was quickly…

Hard stone and heavy metal come together for what might be the coolest Zenith El Primero yet

Imagine, if you will, that you're a watch fan in the 1990s or even early 2000s. Through some incredible new complication (I suspect Urwerk's invention), you're jumped forward in time to 2019.

Not only is the thought of an auction house designing a unique watch — which they'll then sell…

Zenith takes on GPHG 2019 with 5 seriously hot watches

It isn't hard to imagine that Zenith is probably feeling pretty darn confident about being given more than one award at this year's Grand Prix d'Horlogerie de Genève. Not least for the fact that five of the Swiss marque's timepieces have been given the nod by the prestigious event's judges across no fewer than five different categories. This is a seriously big deal for Zenith, especially when you consider that in the eyes of many, the Grand Prix d'Horlogerie de…

The Australian Watch Forum's first collaboration watch

Editor's note: The Australian Watch Forum has gone from strength to strength over the last 18 months, tripling its membership to 9000 members. Based on Facebook, their presence has been felt well outside of social media, with regular meet-ups and get-togethers in major cities across Australia. Here's a throwback to Cam's nod to their first venture with a big watch brand, when they partnered with Zenith last year to release a bronzed-case Pilot Type 20 Extra Special, featuring a special…
