Series of photographs of vintage Cartier watch by photographer Bip Mistry.
Georges Favre Jacot set up a watchmaking company at the age of 22. He called the company Etablissements George Favre-Jacot (later to become Zenith) and brought together all aspects of watchmaking into one operation. Zenith still manufactures its own mechanical movements.
Success came early with a Gold medal at the Geneva Swiss National Exhibition in 1896. The company went on to win a Gold medal at the World Fair in Paris and numerous first prizes from the Neuchâtel’s Observatory for its chronometric precision.
Authentic and ‘real’ photographs of all kinds of watches with Swiss movements. Ladies and gents vintage watches with brands including Asprey, Cartier, Dunhill, Hermes, Longines, Rolex and Tiffany & Co.
The Swiss have maintained a very high reputation worldwide for their ‘SWISS MADE‘ watches. The Federation of the Swiss Watch Industry FH regulates the use of the name ‘Swiss’ on watches. It requires that at least 50% of the components of the watch movement are made in Switzerland.
