Considered 'the Oscars of watchmaking', the Grand Prix d'Horlogerie de Genève announced its 2017 prizes on November 8th. Zenith won the Innovation Prize for its Defy Lab, the world's most accurate mechanical watch thanks to a groundbreaking oscillator. Awarded triple certification, this exceptional timepiece revisits the balance and hairspring regulator invented in January 1675 by the scientist Christiaan Huygens. A concentrate of precision and innovation, the Defy Lab is the first watch made from Aeronith, an aluminum composite lighter than titanium, aluminum or carbon fiber.
