The Defy Extreme Double Tourbillon pushes Haute Horlogerie to the extreme
The DEFY Extreme Double Tourbillon represents the pinnacle of innovative Haute Horlogerie envisioned by Zenith. Not complicated for the sake of complication, but a real advance in high-precision chronographs, building on over 50 years of innovation and refinement of high-frequency automatic chronographs beginning with El Primero. It is constructed differently from other chronograph movements, with two separate tourbillons, the chronograph tourbillon completes its rotation in 60 seconds and the chronograph tourbillon completes its rotation in 5 seconds, making it one of the fastest tourbillons ever made , and the only 1/100 second chronograph, beating at an astonishing rate of 360’000 VpH. best swiss watch
Designed with durability and robustness in mind, the DEFY Extreme Double Tourbillon is ideally suited to house such a complex movement, with a solid angular case measuring 45mm wide and available in two styles. The first is made entirely of titanium, including the bracelet, with a mix of satin-brushed, polished and matte surfaces, while the second is made of carbon fiber with a sandblasted matte rose gold dodecagon case Ring and button protectors on black textured rubber strap. Its open dial with applied chronographs and tinted transparent sapphire elements offers an unobstructed view of the groundbreaking movement and its two tourbillon mechanisms with star frames.
It’s not just the movement’s exceptional performance and ultra-modern construction that make it an eye-catching highlight. A signature element of Zenith’s recent haute horlogerie creations, the movement is decorated with a modern and contrasting look, emphasizing its futuristic style. First, the open satin-brushed bridges of the movement are coated with a layer of black PVD. The edges of these bridges are then highlighted in rose gold to reveal the geometry of the bridges, a departure from traditional watchmaking decoration techniques. Replica watches oniline
