Zenith Defy Xtreme Open – Gold & Ti

Posted by wristwatch on July 5, 2007

Conceived as a Formula 1 car, the design of the DEFY XTREME is closely linked to its function. The dials, for example, combine two complementary methods of construction: multi-layering, where the layers of materials are placed on top of each other, and honeycombing, which – like a bees’ nest – makes the materials stronger. The Manufacture’s engineers have also used the physical theory of shock waves to help design the case so that any shock is dispersed and therefore absorbed by the structure as a whole, rather than concentrated at a single point. The helical hands of the counters are also a guarantee of greater strength because they dissipate energy in case of shock.
