Zenith brings its most advanced and complicated chronograph movement to date to the DEFY Extreme line. The Swiss watchmaker revealed a duo of DEFY Extreme Double Tourbillon fitted with the exceptional 1/100th of a second high-frequency chronograph movement.
The DEFY Extreme Double Tourbillon is equipped with two independent tourbillons finishing rotations in 60 seconds for the time-keeping tourbillon and 5 seconds for the chronograph’s tourbillon. The watch is among the fastest tourbillons ever made and the only 1/100th of a second chronograph that beats at the unprecedented rate of 360’000 VpH.
The DEFY Extreme Double Tourbillon’s angular case measures 45mm wide and is available in two finishes. The first is made entirely in titanium with a mix of satin-brushed, polished and matte surfaces including the bracelet. The second is crafted using carbon fiber with sandblasted matte rose gold twelve-sided bezel and pusher protectors on a black textured rubber strap. Its open dial, with applied chronograph counters and tinted transparent sapphire elements, allows for a clear view of the movement and its two tourbillon mechanisms with star-shaped cages.
The movement’s open and satin-brushed bridges are covered in a layer of black PVD. The edges of those bridges are highlighted in rose gold color, showing the geometric forms of the bridges.
The DEFY Extreme Double Tourbillon in carbon and rose gold costs $79,700 USD, while the brushed titanium edition will set you back $69,600 USD. The timepiece is available from physical and online Zenith boutiques as well as official retailers around the world.
