Movement used to be seen only in skeleton watches or otherwise sealed out of sight due to the limitations of handicraft.
With the aid of computer technology, modern watch craftsmanship enables not only the creation of three-dimensional movements, in which the structural complexity is comparable to a skyscraper, but also exhibits the charming beauty of movement in an open dial or a hybrid of open and skeleton designs.
One timepiece that embodies this is the Zenith Defy Extreme Titanium Blue Edition.
Combining open and skeleton designs, the Defy Extreme series hails transparency and reveals its barrel, mainspring and escapement with a tinted sapphire open dial and caseback design.
