Defy Extreme Double Tourbillon

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

Chopard – LUC Full Strike Tourbillon

At the end of 2016, on the occasion of the 20th anniversary of the establishment of the watch factory, Chopard launched the first minute repeater watch belonging to the LUC series. This timepiece won the 17th Geneva watch industry’s highest honor “Golden Needle Award” watchmaking award The competition (GPHG) was held in 2017.

The LUC Full Strike tourbillon strikes the hours, quarter hours and minutes on transparent crystal gongs. These sapphire rings are an integral part of the crystal, forming a perfect speaker that faithfully transmits the sound of the hammer striking the sapphire, visible at 10 o’clock.

During striking, the crown is disconnected from the movement, so any time setting that could damage the movement cannot be made. The starter pusher built into the crown is also deactivated at this time, as a second attempt to trigger the mechanism could force the striking mechanism to couple the clutch.

The crown winds the movement in one direction and the striking mechanism in the other, thanks to a differential gear that transmits the force exerted by the hand to the corresponding barrel.

The dual power-reserve indicator at 2 o’clock features two coaxial hands, the first indicating the movement’s power reserve and the other indicating the number of strikes that can be started.Discount replica watches

The tourbillon is revealed at 6 o’clock. Its crossed sapphire crystal tourbillon bridge is a tribute to the patented monolithic sapphire technology inherent in the Full Strike collection.
