Defy Xtreme Open Or & Titane or Defy Xtreme Tourbillon Zero-G
The TOURBILLON ZERO-G (zero gravity) is a major innovation in the world of watchmaking.
This revolutionary system, which includes a gyroscope cage tourbillon and constant horizontal escapement, means the mechanism avoids the effects of gravity and thus gives considerably greater accuracy.
Bringing the Replica Tourbillon Zero-G and the Replica Defy Xtreme range together produces an unforeseen design, a perfect alchemy of engine and odywork. A figure 8 on its side, symbolising infinity or a lucky number, is drawn around the hours and minutes display at 11 o’clock and around the opening of the phenomenal Tourbillon at 5 o’clock. A multi-layered dial of Hesalite glass, carbon fibre and aluminium beneath two sapphire glasses, a blackened titanium case that is waterproof at 1000 meters, a black shot-peened titanium case, a protected crown, helium valve and titanium bracelet with Kevlar inserts and high-temperature resistance are the features that make this an extreme sports timepiece. A new star at the zenith of the firmament, available in a numbered series and with the millésime.
In the DEFY XTREME OPEN, the El Primero 4021 SX roars at 36’000 vibrations per hour, protected by a special blade on which the 3-branched second hand revolves.
The power reserve is split into sectors, all hands have Superluminova® inserts. Water-resistant to 1,000 meters, the case is in black titanium or in black titanium and rose gold. A slightly raised helium valve allows for decompression under extreme conditions; carbon fibre inserts make the push-buttons special, multilayered dials combining honeycomb aluminium, shock-resistant Hesalite and carbon fibre. The DEFY XTREME watches are available on rubber strap or on bracelet blend brushed stainless steel or rose gold and composite materials reinforced by Kevlar® lateral inserts.
