Zenith reinterprets fuse & chain mechanism in new Defy Fusee Tourbillon


Zenith has launched the Defy Fusee Tourbillon, a watch with a modernistic style of classic mechanism.

The brand says designers have reinterpreted the fuse & chain constant force mechanism into a contemporary piece.

The watch houses the new El Primero 4805 SK calibre, a manual-winding movement that follows the Defy line of avant-garde movement.


The Defy Fusee Tourbillon is available in two distinct editions in Carbon and Platinum.

Limited to 50 pieces, the first version has a carbon case, crown and buckle head which extends to the open dial.

To complete a high-tech look, the it is fitted on a black rubber strap with a “Cordura” fabric effect and blue stitching.

A second strap is also supplied, in black rubber with a woven carbon effect.

The second version of the Defy Fusee Tourbillon, limited to just 10 pieces, is crafted in platinum.

Its movement is exposed and gives view to the anthracite base plate of the movement to the blued chain and tourbillon cage topped with a set of geometrical bridges in two tones.

The strap is made of a black rubber core coated with black alligator leather.
