DEFY ZERO G ZENITH

Recommended Posts

 Four letters resonating like a promise for Zenith. The promise of a timepiece in a very contemporary collection, featuring a movement with up-to-date performances and a visual design that is not inspired by 20th century models. With this collection, the manufacture is not looking to turn the page of a rich watchmaking past, but to write a new chapter. The Defy Zero G, introduced at Baselworld 2018, epitomises this orientation. Powered by the El Primero 8812 S movement, the model has a trick up its sleeve to combat the effects of gravity: a gyroscopic module named “Gravity Control”, which was already found in the impressive Academy Christophe Colomb in 2013. Its purpose? To keep the escapement and balance wheel in a horizontal position irrespective of the position of the watch!

This ingenious system has been redesigned and now has 139 components instead of 175. Thanks to this bit of downsizing, the calibre takes up just 30% of the original space and can be housed in a 14.85mm-wide watch. The impact on the design is as strong as the effect of the gyroscope on the effects of gravity. Especially since the hour and minute hands are offset at 12 o’clock, leaving pride of place to the gyroscope in an open architecture designed like a spider’s web. The time elements are completed by a small seconds counter at 10 o’clock and a discreet indicator for the power reserve, which reaches 50 hours when the watch is fully wound.

The timepiece comes in a brushed titanium or pink gold case, depending on the version, and with a diameter of 44mm. The earth’s attraction may be eliminated, but the visual attraction is at its zenith!

Price: 95,400 EUR (titanium with alligator strap) – 121,500 EUR (pink gold) zenith.com
