Big, big news from Zenith: DEFY with two tourbillons!
As LVMH replica swiss watches Week kicks off tomorrow in Singapore, let's take a moment to look back at Zenith's final model for 2022: the DEFY Extreme Double Tourbillon featuring the brand's most advanced chronograph movement to date .
Le Locle-based watchmaker Zenith's DEFY collection, which is actually relaunching in early 2022, has performed well over the past 12 months. Since relaunching the retro sporty and elegant styling of the original DEFY that debuted in 1969, we've seen this timepiece lean more into extreme territory and beyond.
Now, Zenith has put its most complicated chronograph movement in a new model that combines the series' classic proportions and advanced technology with haute horlogerie design - the DEFY Extreme Double Tourbillon.

Interestingly, while the main tourbillon has an expected rotation time of 60 seconds, the chronograph's rotor takes just 5 seconds to make one revolution, making it one of the fastest tourbillons ever made.
But, more importantly, all of these sublime timepieces employ an incredibly modern, clean, technical, robust and visually appealing approach to design, ignoring (no pun intended) what you might associate with highly complicated watches any pickiness. It's not complicated for the sake of being complicated. Complicated for action.
look of cycle The angular case of the new DEFY discount replica watch is 45mm wide, and the twin tourbillons, power reserve indicator and chronograph sub-dials all fit neatly onto the dial in some way. There is some overlap, but that only adds to the edginess of the presentation. The dials are located to the left of the dial, one above the other, with elaborate bridge structures holding them together.
One would expect this approach to crowd the left side of the dial. However, the clever use of black PVD color and space minimizes distracting busyness, creating a separate visual hierarchy on which the tourbillon assembly can survive. Yes, there's just a little bit of time-marker information on the left, but honestly, who cares?
The rest of the dial follows a fairly standard chronograph layout - power reserve at 12 o'clock, counters at 3 and 6 o'clock. But remember two things. First, the power reserve indicator is only available on the chronograph (it has a 50-minute reserve, compared to 50 hours for the main power reserve). Second, once the spark is generated, the DEFY's chronograph hand rotates once per second.replica Breitling Chronomat Watches
Add to that the gorgeous skeletonized dial, red gold-plated and luminous hands and indexes, and the word "standard" doesn't really apply in this case.
Two tourbillons, two executions There are two versions of the DEFY Extreme Double Tourbillon. First up is the more aggressive version, with a black carbon fiber case and textured black rubber strap that complements sandblasted matte red gold details, including the bezel and pusher guards on this model. Next, there is the more refined, stealthily elegant all-titanium version, which combines satin-brushed, polished and matte surfaces, all the way to the bracelet. Like I said at the top, it's been a pretty bad year for DEFY. But I'm sure watch fans can expect more in the years to come.Replica Franck Muller Watches
