In the R & D workshops Zenith is developing prototypes and testing new movements. My photographs also show you the new fusee and chain transmission. Ladies and gentlemen … this is a world premier …
Within this workshop Zenith produces his complicated watches. Come with me and watch the master watchmakers at work.
Bracelets are mounted, the waterproofness is tested, the functions are tested a last time and a quality check is made.
See the setting of the hands and the embodying of the movements in the cases.
Now let´s discover how the movements are assembled and regulated.
Now let us discover how the jewels are pressed in the main plate and other components to later reduce the friction in the movement.
After the manufacturing process the movement plates have to be cleaned. Oil and chipping have to be washed away. Therefore the plates are plunged into an ultrasonic bath and several liquids.
Now we will discover how various components of the movement are manufactured.
It all starts with a brass-bar… Discover how the main plate of a Zenith movement is produced…
