Once again affirming its position as the Master of Chronographs, ZENITH brings its most advanced and complicated chronograph movement to date – equipped with two independent tourbillon mechanisms – to the DEFY Extreme line. For the first time, this exceptional 1/100th of a second high-frequency chronograph movement will join the DEFY Extreme core collection in two serially produced references.
The DEFY Extreme Double Tourbillon represents the pinnacle of innovative haute horlogerie as Zenith envisions it. Not complicated for complication’s sake, but a true advancement of high-precision chronographs that builds on over 50 years of innovation and improvement of the high-frequency automatic chronograph that began with the El Primero. Constructed like no other chronograph movement, it is equipped with two independent tourbillons completing rotations in 60 seconds for the time-keeping tourbillon and 5 seconds for the chronograph’s tourbillon, making it among the fastest tourbillons ever made, as well as the only 1/100th of a second chronograph, beating at the phenomenal rate of 360’000 VpH.
