Defy Classic

Baselworld new models

A gateway into this futuristic universe, the new Defy Classic oozes charisma through all 41 mm of its titanium case framing a stellar dial decor, coupled with a choice between a metal bracelet and a strap in leather or rubber.

Gateway to the future of swiss watchmaking

Stellar architecture

Powered by icons of precision and performance, DEFY sets an elegant and sporty style tone with the new Defy Classic. Hours, minutes, central seconds and date: its essential functions are a distillation of the DEFY aesthetic. Large luminescent baton-type hours and minutes hands and a slim seconds hand with an emblematic star counterweight sweep over five stylised branches also evoking the Zenith symbol.

THE EPITOME OF CASUAL CHIC

With its case forged from ultra-light titanium, its blackened skeleton movement, its star-shaped openworked dial and its shade of blue reflecting the collection’s original colour, this Zenith watch propels casual chic elegance into a whole new dimension.

ULTRA-MODERN OPENWORKING

Beating inside its light titanium case is a Manufacture Zenith movement – the famous automatic Elite 670 base calibre – reinterpreted in DEFY mode. For the very first time, this reliable and accurate engine, fitted with a silicon pallet-lever and escape-wheel, is revealed by means of an ultra-modern openworked approach. Blackened, structured and topped by a cut-out date disc read off on a white dot at 6 o’clock, it oscillates at 4 Hz and enjoys over 50 hours of autonomy.

DEFY CLASSIC RADIATES A BLEND OF DISTINCTION AND MODERNITY

Fitted with an integrated metal bracelet composed of supple links, a rubber strap coated with alligator leather, or a unistructure rubber version.

Zenith deep blue

The deep blue minutes ring, punctuated by facetted applied hour-markers, enhances an openworked mechanism sporting contemporary finishing. In a nod to the collection’s legendary origins, this is the exact same shade as its illustrious predecessor, the 1969 El Primero. References to the past stop there however, as DEFY thrusts watchmaking firmly into the future.

FOR FANS OF CONTEMPORARY CLASSICISM

This chic and urban must-have also comes in a version featuring a sunburst blue closed dial with 3 o’clock date window, teamed with the same bracelet/strap options as the openworked model.
