Zenith Defy Lab – “the world’s most accurate mechanical watch” explained

In mid-September 2017, Zenith unleashed its Defy Lab wristwatch that beats at the high frequency of 108,000 vibrations per hour or 15 Hertz.

This is three times more than its famed El Primero movement that beats at 5 Hertz or 36,000 vibrations per hour.

The ability to run at such a high frequency is because of a new oscillator made of monocrystalline silicon. This single component effectively replaces the standard regulating organ in a wristwatch.

With the Defy Lab, Zenith has staked its claim as having created the “world’s most accurate mechanical watch”.

In the video above, the gentleman behind the Defy Lab, Guy Sémon, CEO, Science Institute LVMH explains how it works and why it is the most accurate mechanical watch.
