DEFY EL PRIMERO FUSÉE TOURBILLON

AVANT-GARDE IN THE NAME OF PRECISION

Guaranteeing precise time information for the duration of the movement’s running time is the aim of this futuristic limited edition by Zenith.

The quality of the energy provided by a spring drops over time. To overcome this inherent mechanical feature, watchmakers have designed various systems capable of providing a constant force. One of these consists of a two-piece system formed of a micro-chain coiled around a conical fusee and attached to the barrel. In practical terms, this “fusee-chain” transmission guarantees the production of homogeneous energy. This is what is used together with a tourbillon regulating organ in the impressive Defy El Primero Fusée Tourbillon.
