The story of Zeno Basel starts in an idyllic house in La Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland. Jules Godat set up a modest workshop where he spent the cold winters as a seasonal watchmaker. In 1868 he set up his own business and there was the foundation for the Zeno watch production as we know it. Godat made silver pocket watches and when he left, the workshop was expanded to manufacture railway clocks and watches. In 1920, André-Charles Eigeldinger took over the Godat watch production and registered the name Zeno in 1922. The first Zeno wristwatches were made of gold and intended solely for export. In 1949, Zeno took part for the first time in the Swiss watch fair in Basel. A number of digital watch models, pendant watches for nurses and watches for boys were developed. In 1965 the first mechanical airmen’s watches were developed by Felix W. Huber which set the path for all future Zeno models. Mr. Huber has been the driving force behind the success of Zeno for over 40 years. Zeno introduced the oversized watch, pocket watch movements were being used in wristwatches in the 1920’s which led to oversized wristwatches, a trend that is hot until today.
