KRISTALINI is an exlusive distributor of Zeno-Watch Basel, a Swiss watch-maker established 1868, the Zeno name has been in use only since 1922 Specializing in aviation watches, they are one of the few independent Swiss watch manufacturers still in operation today.
Zeno’s history begins in 1868 with watchmaker Jules Godat, the founder of a small pocket watch manufacturing company (Godat & Co.) in La Chaux-de-Fonds, in the heart of the Swiss watchmaking industry. He produced, in very small quantities, featuring solid silver cases and lady pendant watches. He built a small factory, which was taken over in 1920 by A. Eigeldinger & Fils.
Eigeldinger specialized in wrist watches for the army. They produced watches in stainless steal, silver, gold and platinum, with mechanical movements up to 43mm. Their registered brands were Zeno, Strand and Solvex. The son of the owner, Andre-Charles Eigeldinger, introduced Zeno. In Greek, the name means “graceful”.
The first Zeno watches were made in 1922. Each piece was marked with a Swiss cross on the back of the casing. The company has since continued to innovate watch manufacturing techniques. In 1949, the Zeno watches were exhibited for the first time at the Swiss Watch Fair in Basel.
Zeno’s workshops gained international attention in 1969 with the legendary and futuristic “Spacemen” model, the production of the vacuum diving watch called the “Compressor,” and with the takeover of several well-known Swiss watch factories.
The best known watches produced by Zeno are in the “Pilot Classic” collection. Today’s model compares very favorably with the vintage Zeno Pilot Basic 1965 original. The range of products extends from mechanical to quartz technologies wrist watches with analogue displays, collectors’ wristwatches, pocket watches and sport chronographs in every combination of materials. Zeno has enlarged their successful Pilot watch family of products. Since 1999 they have produced a huge range of pilot watches in new sizes, and many COCS certificated cheronometers. Zeno also makes diving watches used by the Swiss Army for their frogman, with models rated for up to 300 meters (1000 feet) depth.
