In 2017, Zenith DEFYLab was born, and two years later, at this year’s Basel watch exhibition, Zenith launched a new Creator Watch. This watch is The world’s first and currently the only mechanical watch to revolutionize the traditional escapement and successfully achieve mass production. For a long time, Zenith has dared to break through the traditional structural theory and open up a new path. This year’s new DEFY creator is extremely futuristic, and under the avant-garde modern appearance, it perfectly shows the unique charm of mechanical rhythm. Then follow the watch house to enjoy the new timepiece of Zenith this year.
Among the new DEFY Creators watches from Zenith this year, Zenith subverts traditional theories, and adopts a self-developed new mechanical watch heart-‘Zhenli Shishapan’, a 0.5mm Zenith Shishake. , Has revolutionized the traditional escapement system consisting of more than 30 parts, thereby eliminating contact, friction, wear and deformation; the innovative use of single crystal silicon material allows this new component to remain stable in the changes of temperature and magnetic field .
Watch real shot
The diameter of the watch is 44mm. The case is made of brushed titanium. It is equipped with a bezel made of Aeronith, a new aluminum alloy composite material. The metal texture on the bezel shows a sense of technology. The weight of this new material is only titanium. One third of it is very light when worn.
The crown on the side of the watch is engraved with Zenith’s classic star logo, and is made of non-slip texture for easy time adjustment.
The surface of the plate is hollowed out to show the beauty of machinery. The wide and long hour and minute hands are swept through the mechanical structure, while the slender middle small second hand is decorated with a star-shaped top and equipped with a second hand stop system to achieve ultra-precise calibration to the second. The rhodium-plated hands and hour markers are covered with Super-LumiNova® SLNC, which reads time information in the dark.
The DEFY Creator watch uses a black rubber strap with a royal blue crocodile leather lining to fit the wrist. The strap matches the overall style of the watch, presenting the futuristic style in front of us during the mechanical operation.
The movement is equipped with a 9100 mechanical movement, and has an extremely high frequency (usually 4Hz) vibration of 18Hz, and a power reserve of up to two days. The movement is equipped with a monocrystalline silicon oscillator, which is insensitive to magnetic fields, ensuring that the time of the watch is accurate. The bottom of the table uses a penetrating design, and the star-shaped automatic rotor is very beautiful.
This year’s Zenith’s DEFY Creator watch has set a new milestone in its watchmaking history. In terms of watchmaking technology, Zenith’s new products this year have not disappointed us. The brand has taken a different approach and simplified the complexity. An amazing new timepiece for us.
