Zenith Escapes The Influence Of Gravity With The Defy Zero G
In the world of high-end watchmaking, a tourbillon is often the preferred method of choice to battle the influence of gravity on the precision of the movement. Zenith has however developed a different approach, and that is by placing the regulating organs of the watch in a gyroscopic module, that keeps them always in the same position.
Zenith originally introduced this system in the Christophe Colomb but has improved it significantly for the Defy Zero G. The main change is that they have been able to make the gyroscopic module smaller so that it now only consists out of 30% of its initial volume. That makes that it can now be fully integrated into the case of the watch, while the previous models still needed an extra dome in the front and back sapphire crystal to accommodate the module.
The skeletonized lay-out of the Defy Zero G amplifies its technical capabilities. As is traditional for Zenith also does the Zero G run at a frequency of 5Hz, just as the famous El Primero, and is its movement build completely in-house. Unique for such a complicated watch is that Zenith offers it in both brushed titanium as well as 18 karat rose gold.
