Defy Inventor



1 212 888 0505


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.

For Zenith, 'Master of Chronographs' is not a title but an unreachable aspiration, as there is no point in time at which technical innovation should cease and the master be crowned. Instead, the company continues to expand its countless list of achievements and innovatively contribute to the advancement of mechanical chronographs.A testament to their ethos, the Zenith Chronomaster Sport features a striking tri-color dial, pump style pushes and a steel bracelet that grants it a sleek and modern appearance while its automatic chronograph movement ensures dependability. The El Primo caliber further flaunts the brand's creativity as the world's first chronograph with automatic high-frequency movement. The Defy Zero G line garners equal repute as it boasts a redesigned Gravity Control movement with an open execution. The hand-crafted dial in mosaic meteorite, venturine glass and grand feu enamel on a gold base gleam to add a fascinating visual dimension as well as technical awe.
