- The Zenith Radio Corporation as the owner of the watch manufacturer Zenith loses interest in mechanical movements and orders to stop the production and to destroy all movements, fournitures and machinery. The head of the chronograph studios, Charles Vermot, however, is opposed to this order and hides large quantities of movements, tools, machines, and all design and manufacturing drawings in the attic of the traditional manufacture.
- Breitling lays off all remaining workers and ceases production. The brand would be purchased and re-launched the following year.
