Two years ago, Zenith launched the revolutionary Defy El Primero 21, the only high-frequency automatic chronograph designed to measure one hundredth of a second, firmly holding the watchmaking industry Into the 21st century.
In 2019, the Swiss made El Primero double tourbillon with another big leap and contempt: an innovative model powered by the El Primero 9020 caliber and its two independent escapements. One of the latter keeps the chronograph beating at an abnormal frequency and supplies power to 1/100 of the stopwatch, while the other ensures the long-term accuracy of the watch.
Zenith continues to innovate and set the standard for tomorrow’s watchmaking through the DEFY series: after the unparalleled Defy El Primero 21, the first mass-produced mechanical chronograph can provide a measurement function of one hundredth of a second; This is followed by the world’s most accurate mechanical watch, Defy Lab, equipped with an unprecedented oscillator. This high-end watch manufacturer has released the Defy El Primero Double Tourbillon. This unprecedented combination of timepiece complexity-two tourbillons and 1/100 second chronograph-is truly of extraordinary quality.
The latest products in the Defy series combine technology, innovation, performance and design, and are unique in construction and aesthetics. Zenith has developed two tourbillons for this watch, this is Maison’s first tourbillon. Another feat is that a tourbillon (located at 10 o’clock) is connected to the chronograph and adjusts the chronograph, and displays one hundredth of a second in a legible manner.
The tourbillon rotates once every five seconds and can beat a frequency of 50 Hz (360,000 vibrations per hour), making it the fastest tourbillon in the world. It drives the hands of the timer at an amazing speed of rotating the dial every second. The second tourbillon (located at 8 o’clock) runs at a frequency of 5 Hz, and the carriage rotates once a minute. It adjusts the speed of the watch, that is, hours, minutes and seconds.
Echoing this dual structure, two dedicated barrels (one for the fake luxury watches and the other for the timer) store and transfer energy. They provide 60 hours of power reserve for the watch and 50 minutes of power for the 1/100 of the seconds.
This legendary 1969 heir to El Primero, this new high-frequency internal movement can drive the hour, minute, and second hand chronograph 1/100, 60, and 30 minute counters (located at 6 and 9 o’clock, respectively) . , And the power reserve indication of the timer at 12 o’clock. To further ensure accuracy, the El Primero 9020 movement has been certified by an independent agency (TimeLab) astronomical timepiece.
Defy El Primero Double Tourbillon vividly expresses futurism, technology and confident watchmaking craftsmanship, but also stands out because of its strong aesthetics. El Primero 9020 and its 311 components give full play to the uniqueness of the skeletonized dial, and highlight the new logo of Zenith Advanced Watch Movement through two-tone processing. The blue-handled tourbillon carriage with Zenith stars, as well as the bridge and bottom plate, with polished angles, further enhance this amazing 3D view of the movement.
Whether it is made of platinum, has the unique satin matte and polished finish of this series, the sapphire bottom cover, or is entirely made of carbon, the case is waterproof to 100 meters. It is fixed on the wrist with a luxurious high-tech black rubber strap, which is painted with crocodile leather or Cordura patterns.
Effectively combining aesthetics, function and polymorphism, its ingredients are resistant, durable and hypoallergenic, while providing unlimited possibilities for texture, color and bright line changes.
