Zenith is revolutionizing mechanical watchmaking. The brand’s new Zenith Oscillator control system was developed and patented by the Manufacture and replaces the traditional sprung balance that has been used in mechanical watchmaking for over three centuries. It features a single element, which is a vast change from the 30 or so components that make up a standard regulating system. Benefits include reliability, stability and durability. The control system’s features are triple certified: for magnetic insensitivity (ISO-764), thermal insensitivity (ISO-3159) and chronometric precision (TIMELAB – Foundation of the Geneva Laboratory of Horology and Micro-engineering)
In a new, futuristic chapter of Zenith history, the brand has launched their DEFY Inventor featuring the Zenith Oscillator. With 3-hands, a 44mm open-worked dial and an avant-garde exterior, the timepiece is produced in a run of several hundred units, making it a bit more accessible than its predecessor, the DEFY Lab. A modern aesthetic and leading-edge materials add to its uniqueness – the case is made of lightweight titanium and the bezel is made of Aeronith, an innovative aluminum-polymer composite. The dial features broad hours and minutes hands, and a slim star-tipped seconds hand that pays homage to the brand. A black rubber strap with a midnight blue alligator coating finishes this exceptional timepiece.
