The Zenith brand had its start in 1865, when it was founded by an ambitious young watchmaker at the invulnerable age of 22. Today, together with Tag Heuer, Zenith is a subsidiary owned by the multibillion-dollar conglomerate, LVMH. It has to be pointed out that the LV in LVMH stands for Louis Vuitton. Just by being a subsidiary of this giant, validates Zenith as a luxury Swiss watch brand.
Zenith enters this list with a masterpiece. The Chronomaster is a timepiece of pure art and engineering. Through its open-worked dial, everything is laid out in the open. The visible inner workings of the movement add to the design of this intricately crafted beauty. It works well both as rugged wear and as a dress watch for more formal occasions. You have your choice of color for the dial, hands, and bezel as well as a choice of strap material.
