Zenith - Defy Double Tourbillon

A legend in the world of watchmaking, Zenith's El Primero movement family has an impressive number of records in its history, including the world's first high-frequency automatic chronograph (1969) and the world's first high-frequency tourbillon (2004).

Another big innovation was introduced in 2017 with the Defy El Primero 21, the only high-frequency automatic chronograph designed to measure hundredths of a second.

This year, Zenith established another record with the Defy El Primero Double Tourbillon, an unprecedented combination of horological feats: two tourbillons and a 1/100th of a second chronograph!

The new model is available in two limited editions: a 50-unit interpretation entirely made of carbon and a 10-piece platinum version, both characterized by an attractive openworked dial where the blue-treated tourbillon carriages with the Zenith star, along with the bridges and baseplate, feature polished angles that further enhance the 3D architecture of the El Primero 9020 and its 311 components.

The tourbillon at 10 o'clock is coupled with and regulates the chronograph measuring and displaying hundredths of a second in a perfectly legible manner. Beating a frequency of 50 Hz (360,000 vibrations per hour) with its carriage performing a complete rotation every five seconds, this tourbillon is the fastest in the world. It drives the chronograph hand at the amazing speed of one full turn of the dial per second.

The second tourbillon at 8 o'clock regulates the rate of the watch (i.e. hours, minutes and seconds) operating at a frequency of 5 Hz (36,000 vph) with a carriage performing one rotation per minute.

Two dedicated barrels – one for the watch and the other for the chronograph – store and deliver energy. They respectively provide 60 hours of power reserve for the watch and 50 minutes for the 1/100th of a second chronograph.

The El Primero 9020 in-house movement drives the hours, minutes, 1/100th of a second chronograph, 60-second and 30-minute counters (at 6 and 9 o'clock respectively), along with a chronograph power-reserve indicator at 12 o'clock. As a further guarantee of precision, the El Primero 9020 calibre is chronometer-certified by an independent body (TimeLab).

Water-resistant to 100 metres / 330 feet, the Zenith Defy Double Tourbillon is secured to the wrist by a luxurious high-tech black rubber strap, coated with alligator leather or Cordura-patterned. The carbon version (ref. 10.9000.9020/79.R918) has a price of Swiss Francs 119,900 while the elegant platinum edition (ref. 40.9000.9020/78.R582) is priced at Swiss Francs 149,900. zenith-watches.com

  1. Zenith has some of the best technologies in the entire watchmaking world and keeps innovating like no others. I greatly admire the brand because it does not just live on past glory or traditions.
