Zenith, Swiss Watch Manufacture Since 1865 – Manfred Rossler UITVERKOCHT!


Product Description

This book retraces the history of the Swiss watch maison, documenting events and practically the entire production of more than 140 years.

Setting out from the first pocket-watches, which after the 30’s gradually gave way to the more modern “wrist contraptions” – accessories initially seen in a very negative light – the book documents the invention of both the revolutionary 17 ligne movement and one of the sector’s best known calibres: the legendary El Primero. With more than 700 illustrations with detailed captions, Zenith also includes the increasingly specialised models: waterproof casings, chronometers, chronographs with special dials and timepieces for the military, sport and medical sectors.
