Our watch news site Wrist Dreams reports that Zenith will exhibit a new over the top wristwatch with the gravity defying Defy Xtreme Zero-G Tourbillon at the BaselWorld 2008.
ZENITH has devised a Zero-G (zero gravity) system. The gyroscope cage Tourbillon comprises an escapement mounted on cardan joints rather like marine chronometers. The instrument, which is sensitive to changes of position, is kept in a constant horizontal position, thereby ensuring optimal amplitude for the spiral balance-wheel.
