Defy Zero G



1 212 888 0505


The ultra-modern Zenith Defy Zero G (G for gravity) has a new skeletonized high-frequency movement coupled with the brand's patented gyroscopic Gravity Control module. The 44mm 18K rose gold watch houses a manual-winding 324-part movement, the El Primero 8812S caliber, which measures tenths of a second, beats at the high rate of 5Hz and offers 50 hours of power reserve. The newly reconfigured Gravity Control module (first unveiled at the Zenith Academy Christophe Colomb in 2011 in its original format) combines the regulating organ and balance wheel, and holds them in a horizontal position. Visible at 6 o'clock, the system acts similarly to a tourbillon escapement and cancels the e!ects negative of gravity on timekeeping. For the Defy Zero G, this 139-part module has been slimmed down and optimized for peak balance amplitude and precision. It is held in place by a gimbal suspension system inspired by ships' gimbals that were designed to correct variations in time resulting from the pitch and toss of a ship at sea. Time is indicated on the blued ring at 12 o'clock.

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.
