Zodiac tells you more than just time. It’s a paradigm for how you live your life. It’s about living in the present moment while at the same time craving the next adventure. A spirit made of equal parts intensity and playfulness. A spirit kept firmly inside you regardless of where you are. Be it the boardroom or the gym or hanging from the edge of a glacier. It’s a statement or rather an understatement. One that says you will adapt but you will never follow. That there is indeed a bigger picture out there, somewhere far removed from the day-to-day, and that you intend to find it.
Zodiac comes from a rich heritage of Swiss clockmaking. In 1882 Ariste Calame founded a workshop for the production of special watches in Le Loche, Switzerland, which would later become Zodiac. The son of a watchmaker, Calame was obsessed with the thought of creating the most precise watch of all time. The result of his careful work became the first Zodiac – a pocket watch with a unique character. Thus, the foundation had been laid for a whole series of technical wonders in the world of Swiss watches. Because of their high quality and technical innovations, Calame’s dynasty managed to become one of the fastest growing companies in Switzerland.
