Zenith 2019

ref. 95.9001.9100/78.R584
Men's

Presented in the Defy Lab in 2017, Zenith's revolutionary oscillator is now greenlighted for serial production in the Defy Inventor. This strategic component is manufactured as a single, ultra-thin part operating at a very high frequency of 18 Hz (129,600 vib/h) and replaces the thirty-some parts of a standard regulator, eliminating friction, wear and deformation. Made from monocrystalline silicon, it is unaffected by variations in temperature or magnetic fields. Building on these properties, Zenith has set an objective of +/- 0.5 second/day precision. For the present time, Calibre 9100 is chronometer-certified by TimeLab in Geneva. It resides in a lightweight titanium case with a bezel made from Aeronith, an aluminium composite.
