With its long, unique tradition in the field of chronometry, Zenith was the perfect brand to introduce this groundbreaking development. The brands new calibre ZO 342 is regulated by a monolithic oscillator made of monocrystalline silicon developed thanks to the application of the laws of compliant mechanism. The escapement working with the oscillator is very similar to a clock anchor escapement. The anchor is integrated within the oscillator (just like the anchor can be integrated to the pendulum for some clocks!) and works in conjunction with a silicon escape wheel.
