During LVMH Watch Week in Dubai in January 2020 I discovered the the brands novelties together with CEO Ricardo Guadalupe. Ricardo told me: “In order to push back the limits of mastering time, we have developed a brand of savoir-faire all of its own: the art of fusion. Be the first, be unique, be different”.
What you will discover here is tantamount to a palace revolution!
With its “Defy Lab” Zenith is the brand to present the new revolutionary oscillator – a monolithic regulating organ made out of silicon – of the LVMH Watch Division Research & Development Department.
It is made out of monocrystalline silicon, including details finer than a human hair and it replaces the sprung balance.
The 31 components of a standard Swiss lever escapement, measuring usually 5 mm or more, which require assembly, adjustment, timing, testing and lubrication, are completely replaced by a single element measuring just 0.5 mm thick.
I invite you to learn all you need to know with plenty of EXCLUSIVE pictures and videos and of course with my interviews.
I talked to Guy Sémon the brain and driving force behind the development of the new monolithic regulating organ made out of silicon and I talked to Thomas Mercier, who is a member of Guy´s Research & Development team in La Chaux-de-Fonds.
It is only today the world premiere of the new oscillator. But everything you will discover here I was already able to discover last week. So I was able to put this comprehensive article together for you. Enjoy!
