Defy Inventor

ZENITH has been showcasing its Defy collection as a platform for the brand’s renewed emphasis on advanced technology and materials, including its single-piece oscillator that beats at an extremely high frequency of 18Hz or 129,600 vph, compared to the usual 4 Hz or 28,800 vph. This year, the watch with the super-oscillator is no longer a limited edition concept and will be produced in a run of several hundred pieces. The revolutionary single-piece oscillator replaces the traditional 30-piece standard regulating organ, and is made of silicon. The case is made of lightweight titanium and the textured bezel is made of Aeronith, an aluminium-polymer composite that is three-times lighter than titanium. The dial is openworked to resemble a stylised propeller, with blades evoking the ZENITH star.
