Zenith has joined the Fondation de la Haute Horlogerie as its new partner-brand becoming the 42nd brand to do so.
Year after year, a growing number of watch companies have united around the FHH whose mission is to inform about and promote the values of Fine Watchmaking.
Created in 2005, the FHH is entirely focused on activities to provide information, deliver training and organise events for both the public and watchmaking professionals. It enjoys the support of a widening circle of partner-brands which recognise its objectives as a goal they can pursue as one.
Over the years, the FHH has demonstrated its competencies as a creator of content and experiences that reflect the expertise, emotion and legacy of Fine Watchmaking.
2017 has been a great year for the FHH and for Zenith too which has shown how an established brand can innovate like a start-up. It began with the unveiling of the Defy El Primero 21, a dual-chain chronograph that calculates 1/100th of a second. It followed this with the Defy Lab, fitted with a revolutionary monobloc oscillator. Winner of the Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève 2017 Innovation Prize, it attains precision which a mechanical calibre has never achieved before.
