Bold Wristwatch for Bold Adventurer


Jean-Louis Etienne is the first adventurer who managed to perform a solo flight over the North Pole in a balloon. During the flight, he faced the most extreme conditions as the most extreme temperatures, -45 degrees Celsius in the North and -65 degrees Celsius in the South, are at the Poles.

To honor the explorer and commemorate his remarkable exploit, Zenith has created a timepiece characterized by the top level of reliability to withstand the extreme environment of the North Pole.

The Zenith El Primero Jean-Louis Etienne watch houses a unique mechanical movement that measures and displays up to 1/10th of a second. The mechanism offers supreme precision, having been subjected to the strictest reliability tests. The timepiece makes every 10th of a second visible.
