The extraordinary rebirth of Zenith over the past year under Jean-Claude Biver's guidance has produced a timepiece that will remind those who have lost. This maison is a true manufacturer that has never been anything but manufacture. Its inventiveness, as demonstrated by the El Primero,U-Boat fake watches
is unmatched. The company's prowess has been demonstrated through the uboat replica. This is a development that can only truly be called fundamental.
Zenith is bringing back a name that was once associated with its past, "Defy", which stood for boldness and disruption. Zenith used the range to show a rethinking British horologist Robert Hooke’s invention of balance and hairspring principle. (Erroneously credited Dutch scientist Christiaan Huygens, until 2006's discovery of a missing manuscript). A monolithic silicon oscillator is the key component of the watch, replacing the traditional Swiss anchor, hairspring, and balance wheel.
A further development of the long tried-and-tested default for mechanical watches -- the harmonic oscillator -- this new movement addresses the usual problems of position, magnetism,lubrication, temperature change, production consistency and other variables that influence accuracy. The finest watches can only be controlled to +/- 2 seconds per day.Cartier Roadster Replica
However, the new system has a significant improvement in the watch's stability.
Zenith has eliminated the traditional balance, lever, balance spring and shock-resistance system in the ZO 342. Zenith claims that the ZO 342's single-piece nature is what makes it revolutionary. It has around 30 components. Guy Semon, a physicist well-known for his revolutionary work as general director at Zenith's sister brand TAG Heuer, designed the Zenith oscillator. It was etched from silicon wafers using the most recent techniques to ensure absolute consistency in manufacturing for all operational and physical parameters.
The component is 30mm in diameter and almost as large as the movement.uboat replica
It serves the function of a spring to restore force to the oscillator. Other aspects of operation include the role of the lever, shock-resistance, and other concerns. This is a great example of lateral thinking, which has improved almost every parameter. The first watch to use this movement is 44mm in diameter, and it is made from Aeronith (the world's lightest aluminum composite).
Zenith will produce only 10 copies of these watches, as a way to let this incredible technology get out into the real world. It remains to be seen how widespread it will be used, but the uboat replica certainly owes its respects to the magazine's name, and weinreturn are thrilled to call it the Revolutionary Watch of 2017.
