Swiss watchmaker Zenith has just added to their DEFY XTREME 2009 collection with an exotic limited edition timepiece. Capable of handling extreme gravity conditions, the Defy Xtreme Tourbillon Zero-G features a tourbillon carriage in a free-moving gyroscopic-styled housing.
It also includes a series of conical shaped regulator gears so that the tourbillon always points down no matter how it’s positioned, ensuring optimal amplitude for the spiral balance-wheel. This Zero-G Defy Xtreme also features a multi-layered dial clad in Hesalite glass, carbon fiber and aluminum beneath two sapphire glasses, a protected crown, helium valve and a titanium bracelet. If you’ve got some spare folding money laying around, you can take one of these home for the mind-blowing price of $500,000.
