Zenith – Defy Inventor

By Roberta Naas

The new Defy Inventor lives up to its bold name with an unusual movement and case material: It’s the first time the patented Zenith Oscillator appears in a production watch. The Oscillator control system replaces traditional sprung balances, allowing the removal of about 30 components.

The monolithic regulator is silicon, eliminating friction and the need for lubrication, as well as rendering it anti-magnetic. With a precision-enhancing speed of 18Hz, the 44mm watch has a bezel made of Aeronith, a lightweight aluminum-polymer composite that’s one of the lightest materials on Earth.

The watch is triple certified for anti-magnetism, thermal resistance and chronometric precision by ISO and TIMELAB – Foundation of the Geneva Laboratory of Horology and Micro-engineering.

Price: $17,800 in titanium with Aeronith bezel
