AND THE BEGINNINGS TO

BY WAS OF
ZENITH

Three Swiss watch brands dominated the market in Imperial Russian: Heinrich Moser, Pavel Buhre and Georges
Favre-Jacot. Georges Favre-Jacot was founded by Georges Favre-Bulle in 1865 after his apprenticeship in
La Sagne.He began his company from a small workshop in Les Billodes, Le Locle Switzerland.Georges
Faver-Jacot registered the trademark Billodes in 1884In 1896 the firm changed its name to Georges Faver-Jacot
et Cie.The firm registered the trade mark Zenith in 1897 Georges Favre-Jacot (GFJ)
produced a twin key (set time/wind main spring) Billodes Turques movement, between the years of 1881 and 1905.
Georges Favre-Jacot (GFJ) produced four watch lines:

Georges Favre-Jacot
Billodes
Defi
Diogenes

In 1897 he introduced a fifth line:

Zenith

EVENTUALLY ZENITH WOULD BECOME THE SOLE LINE

A WATCH IN THE ZENITH REFERENCE BOOK DATING

IMG_6046.JPG (42331 bytes)

THIS WONDERFUL EXAMPLE OF A GEORGES FAVRE JACOT
HAD SEVERAL ISSUES AND OF WHICH ONE REMAINS

 

IMG_6045.JPG (53169 bytes)

THE WATCH WAS DISASSEMBLED, INSPECTED AND LIGHTLY CLEANED
THAT MEANS WE DID NOT PLACE IN OUR CLEANING MACHINE
EACH PART WAS SOAKED AND DRIED AND LUBED
JEWELS WERE CLEANED AND LUBED BY HAND
THEN REASSEMBLED TO TEST THE VARIOUS PARTS
THE MAIN SPRING WAS LUBED
WE POLISHED THE BALANCE PIVOTS

WE CAN SEE THE BALANCE IS NOT MOVING

IMG_6044.JPG (49829 bytes)

HERE WE CAN SEE THAT THE BALANCE HAIR SPRING CANNOT BE SEEN
THIS MEANS THIS BABY IS RUNNING STRONG AND PERFECT

DURING OUR INSPECTION WE DISCOVERED THE PROBLEM WAS AND IS THE PALLET FORK
THE BALANCE COCKED TO THE LEFT OF THE PALLET FORK JEWEL SLOT
  THE ROLLER JEWEL IS JUMPING THE PALLET FORK SLOT

THE PROBLEM

1: THE PALLET FORK LOWER PIVOT WAS WORN ENOUGH TO MOVE WHEN SHAKEN
2: SOMEONE ATTEMPTED TO “FIX” THE PALLET FORK AND ACTUALLY BENT IT

IMG_6041.JPG (42416 bytes)

HER WE SEE AFTER 40 SECONDS
IT HAS RUN 24 HOURS BUT

THE PALLET FORK REQUIRES REPLACEMENT

WE BENT THE PALLET BACK TO A REASONABLE POSITION TO GET IT RUNNING
BUT IT COULD JUMP AGAIN AND THE ROLLER JEWEL WILL BE OUT OF THE SLOT

1911 WAS THE YEAR Georges Favre RETIRED AND THE COMPANY
NAME Georges Favre-Jacot” WAS CHANGED TO “Zenith”

THE MARTEL FACTORY WAS LESS THAN 10 KM AWAY
MARTEL HAD DESIGNED CHRONOGRAPH MOVEMENTS
IT HAS BEEN STATED THAT MARTEL BEGAN
TO SUPPLY BOTH COMPANIES WITH MOVEMENTS

martel1927.JPG (57725 bytes)

MARTELl WAS THE SUPPLIER OF THE  CHRONOGRAPH MOVEMENTS FROM 1919 TO 1956
MARVIN ALSO DEVELOPED A MODERN AUTOMATIC WITH FULL 360
ROTOR AND DATE WITH MARTEL PRECISION
UNTIL THAT TIME, ZENITH ONLY PRODUCED BUMPER AUTOMATICS.

 

zenithcompaxuniversal-DDD.jpg (192843 bytes)

ABOVE WE HAVE ZENITH UNIVERSAL ADVERTISED IN SAME ADVERT

ZENITH & UNIVERSAL WOULD FOREVER WORK CLOSELY AND ASSIST MARTEL WITH INNOVATIONS

UNIVERSAL AND ZENITH  COOPERATED IN THE FIELD OF CHRONOGRAPHS WITH MARTEL FROM THE BEGINNING;
INVESTING RESOURCES WITH MARTEL. IN FACT RAOUL PERRET, SON OF GEORGES PERRET A CO-FOUNDER OF
UNIVERSAL WATCHES,TOOK OVER UNIVERSAL IN 1933 AND ALSO WAS ON THE BOARD OF ADMINISTRATION
FOR THE ZENITH WATCH COMPANY IN 1925. THUS BOTH UNIVERSAL AND ZENITH HAD THE PRIVILEGE

.zenith1930.jpg (68474 bytes)

 
DIFFERENT MARTEL SIZES M, SUCH AS  12, 13, 14, 15, and 16 lignes WERE UTILIZED AND ZENITH AND UNIVERSAL SIMPLY RENAMED THEM
ZENITH NAMED THEM ACCORDING TO SIZE AS:  cal. 122, 136, 146, 156, 166. UNIVERSAL USED THE NUMBERS 281 and so on
EACH COULD BE MADE WITH TWO OR THREE COUNTER. SUCH AS THE: cal. 136 D and cal.136 H.

[1958 – 1960]
ZENITH PURCHASED THE MARTEL WATCH ALONG WITH ALL EQUIPMENT. 

THE ZENITH MARTEL cal. 25×2 WAS  UTILIZED FOR HAND WOUND WATCHES
IT WOULD BECOME THE MAIN ZENITH MOVEMENT DURING FROM *1960 THROUGH 1975
[*WITH UPDATES TO THE MOVEMENT TO KEEP WITH THE TIMES AND ADVANCEMENTS]

 

***1969 Zenith INTRODUCED THE MOST FAMOUS TIME PIECE IN HISTORY (THIS WRITERS BELIEF)
THE HIGH FREQUENCY El PRIMERO AUTOMATIC CHRONOGRAPH 
THE EL PRIMERO THREE COUNTER, DATE W/QUICK SET, ULTRA THIN WITH 36000 BPH 2

In 1971 ZENITH INTRODUCED THE FIRST AUTOMATIC CHRONO WITH FULL CALENDAR AND MOONPHASE “ESPADA”

 

IN 1972 THE AMERICAN COMPANY  Zenith (radio and television) PURCHASED ZENITH WATCHES

ZENITH HAD, FOR DECADES, ONE DESIRE. TO DESTROY ZENITH WATCH CO.

THE US COMPANY ZENITH  HAD BATTLED  ZENITH WATCH COMPANY OVER THE NAME ZENITH.

IN 1975, AFTER MILKING ZENITH FOR ALL IT COULD ZENITH RADIO/TV ORDERED ZENITH WATCHES TO
S PRODUCTION OF MECHANICAL MOVEMENTS AND FOR MARTEL TO S  PRODUCTION
OF CHRONOGRAPH MOVEMENTS, AND THEN, AFTER DESTROYING ALL THE MARTEL TOOLING TOOLS,    SOLD THE MARTEL BUILDING.

 

“Charles Vermot chef of ébauches production at Zenith,  went against the Zenith  foreign orders and saved many tools,
machines as well as know-how from the Martel building, which all proved to be very valuable for Zenith ten years later
in 1985 when the El Primero was revived. Charles Vermot was a visionary and saved the finest tools and machines from
the Martel plant in Ponts-de Martel.”
