Zenith created an ingenious fake wristwatch named “Defy Lab” which has been regarded as the most precision mechanical watch in the world as the daily error has been reduced to a staggering 0.25 seconds. For mass production with such the high precision, Rolex and Omega couldn’t accomplish, even Patek Philippe never tried it before. Many people guess that Zenith has made a timepiece with quartz movement, however, Zenith disappoints them. It is a real and pure mechanical wristwatch.
I have introduce the Zenith Defy copy watch with Aeronith case when it was launched last year. So why I discuss about it again today? I will explain it from two aspects.
- Innovative Oscillator
Zenith Defy Lab canceled the twining hairspring that has been used from more than 300 years. The change in geometry makes the center of gravity no longer deflected widely, and there is almost no attenuation of the swing with the power. Meanwhile, it adopts the lighter and anti-magnetic silicon to make the parts, forming balance spring, the balance wheel, the pallet fork and the precision adjuster integrally, making a silicon wafer with a thickness of only 0.5 mm. The frequency has been raised to the horrible 108000VPH, which is four times that of conventional mechanical watches. 44 mm Zenith knockoff watch solves the troubles of mechanical watchmaking for hundreds of years.
- Aeronith Material
The case of the Zenith is not the ordinary steel or 18 K gold. It is a creative Aeronith material which is invented by Hublot, lighter than titanium and carbon. The basic composition is aluminum alloy. In order to achieve a lighter effect, the engineers foamed the aluminum alloy and then filled the holes with particles, which is similar to a sponge. The color of the actual watch is similar to sesame paste or concrete, and the surface is bumpy.
