Swiss watch brand Zenith has released the Defy Inventor watch at this year’s Baselworld to celebrate the brand’s 50th anniversary of the El Primero. Zenith’s Defy Inventor contains a regulating organ and replaces a traditional sprung balance. The Zenith Oscillator control system is a single piece, ultra-thin system made of mono-crystalline silicon with movements visible from the dial side. This control system consists of “high frequency chronometric precision,” meaning it boasts greater stability and replaces  the traditional spring balance as well as the entire moving mechanism of the watch. This new mechanism stands as one of the largest innovations of the modern watch industry since the traditional “hairspring principle that’s been a staple of watches since the 1600s.

Zenith Watchmakers Launch Defy Inventor Watch Swiss mono-crystalline silicon Aeronith

Subtle, sturdy, and sleek in design, the 44mm brushed case is made from Aeronith, the world’s lightest aluminium composite that is three times lighter than titanium, creating a wearable, comfortable style. The domed sapphire crystal also contains anti-reflective treatment on both sides, as well as a transparent sapphire crystal case-back. The watch features a stop-seconds function for a highly accurate reading and is available with a black rubber strap featuring midnight blue alligator coating.

The watch is available from June 2019, available for $19,000 USD. Take a closer look in the gallery above, or head over to the Zenith site for more info.
