Swiss heritage brand, Zenith continues to win acclaim for their remarkable craftsmanship— in particular their latest offering from the brilliant Defy collection. The Defy Classic, a masterstroke of contemporary watchmaking, takes refined elegance to a new era. Crafted for the modern man-about-town, the Defy Classic 41mm features a featherlight titanium case and star-themed open work dial with unique views of the Maison’s exceptionally accurate Manufacture ZENITH automatic Elite 670 base calibre. Pitch black, structured and topped by a cutout date disc with a white dot at 6 o’clock, the movement oscillates at 4 Hz and offers its owner a reserve in excess of 50 hours.
In tribute to the piece’s esteemed origins, the deep blue minutes ring echoes that of its renowned predecessor—the 1969 El Primero, with a choice of closed dial for a more understated appeal. Fitted with an integrated metal link bracelet, a rubber-coated strap version with alligator leather or an all-rubber option, this collection integrates effortlessly into the contemporary lifestyle. The Defy Classic seamlessly marries a dignified, but sporty style with technical prowess and impeccable performance.
Founded in 1865, Zenith’s passion for fine watches is driven by cutting-edge innovation and precision. Lauded for the legendary 1969 El Primero calibre (enabling short-time measurements accurate to the nearest 1/10th of a second), Zenith has since developed over 600 movement variations. Today, the Manufacture’s gains in time measurement (including 1/100th of a second timing with the Defy El Primero 21) are astounding— as are their leaps forward in mechanical precision with the world’s most accurate watch, the 21st century Defy Lab. Sleek, but classic timepieces with every technological advantage are Zenith’s signature.
