Zenith fake created two limited-edition all-sapphire cases to show its determination to be among the best high-end watch companies of the time.
Both are in the Defy series, and both come with a six-digit price tag.
Like the first Zero Gs in 2018, the DEFY Zero-G Sapphire uses a manual winding El Primero 8812 S movement, which has a patented gravity-controlled gyroscope mechanism.
The zero gravity of 2018 and today is similar in architecture, but very different visually. The glued bridge project has been changed to a stronger beam with a star shape added in 2021.
DEFY Zero Gravity Sapphire
Between the beams are inlaid with meteorites, aventurine glass and miniature paintings. The red planet Mars is depicted on the small seconds dial, and the hour and minute dials are partially eclipsed.
The entire main board and plywood of the movement are in blue tones, with metallic gray chamfers in sharp contrast, dotted with white stars.
Defy 21 double tourbillon
Zenith also launched the new Defy 21 double tourbillon watch. This watch used a carbon fiber case before, but this time it has a full sapphire treatment.
The skeletonized El Primero 9020 automatic chronograph movement powers the central hour and minute hands, two tourbillons, a 1/100-second central chronograph hand that rotates one revolution per second, a 30-minute chronograph at 3 o’clock, and a 60-second chronograph.6 Chronograph power reserve indicator at o’clock and 12 o’clock.
The shape of the night sky is not as obvious as the Zero G, but Zenith is determined to be associated with the stars, so it gives the Defy 21 motherboard a blue PVD surface, and some dial side bridges are engraved with stars.
In order to make the transaction sweeter, Zenith also provided all 20 owners of the new sapphire watch with the opportunity to make a nauseating zero-gravity flight in France.
Zenith is no stranger to innovation. The revolutionary Defy El Primero 21 is the only high-frequency automatic chronograph capable of measuring hundredths of a second, paving the way for the future of watchmaking. Now that the new Defy El Primero double tourbillon is available, it is continuing this tradition. Powerful, fast and precise-this timepiece has nothing to do with fine and complex timepieces. The double tourbillon is powered by the El Primero 9020 movement and two independent escapements.
As a master of technology and aesthetics, this watch aims to set high standards for performance and design; it is also the bearer of the fastest tourbillon on the planet, beating at a frequency of 50 Hz (360,000 vibrations per hour) to adjust Chronograph. The second tourbillon regulates the speed of the watch and runs at a frequency of 5 Hz.
The skeletonized dial adds to its beauty, and the El Primero 9020 movement and its 311 components are fully visible. Zenith Defy El Primero Double Tourbillon provides a sapphire or carbon fiber back cover, depending on the choice, water resistance to 100 meters, fixed on the wrist with a luxurious high-tech black rubber strap, coated with crocodile leather or Cordura pattern.
