Gold, Silver, Copper, And Iron, Which Materials Look Good?

Most of the watches are made of steel or titanium, and the higher end is made of gold. The precious metal of silver seems to be relatively rare. But this time, Zenith was against the trend and launched a special silver version of the Pilot Type 20 special edition.

This is the first watch released by Zenith for this year’s Basel show warm-up and is the brand’s first silver watch. The diameter of the watch is 45mm, the case and dial are made of silver, and the dial has a rivet-like texture. The inspiration should be from the skin of the old plane. Its hands, time scales, and crowns have been specially processed to increase the size. With the large diameter of 45mm, the whole watch looks very tough.

On the back of the watch, there is also a pattern of old-fashioned airplanes, which is very flavorful. Loaded with the Zenit Elite 679 automatic movement, it is stored for 50 hours.

The biggest point of this watch is the use of silver materials. The look and feel of silver are relatively low-key and warm, and like bronze, it is swatch for some retro style works. With the aesthetic fatigue of ordinary materials (such as steel or gold), there may be more and more silver watches in the future. This time, Zenith is a good start.

The watch is expected to be available in late April this year, with a limited edition of 200 pieces and a price of about 52,000 yuan.

Pure Pioneer Beauty Zenith Defy Classic White Ceramic Watch

Zenith was born in Switzerland in 1865. It has always combined the beauty and precision of mechanical watches with bold ideas, injecting new blood into the watchmaking world. This year, Zenith added a new model to its classic DEFY collection, with three different main colors – black, white and blue – that have a distinctive color and a contemporary elegance. Next, we will take a look at the white models as an example to see the unique charm of the new DEFY Classic watch from Zenith. (Watch model: 49.9002.670/01.R792)

The pure beauty of the vanguard

The DEFY Classic series interprets the new futuristic watchmaking skills in a pure form, and the overall geometric shape with a unique futuristic structure creates a strong three-dimensional aesthetic. For the first time, these three new models launched this year are made of hard and solid color ceramics. The exquisite and delicate appearance creates a modern and fashionable style, suitable for the avant-garde of modern cities.

Inspired by the original Zenith DEFY watch from the 1970s, this watch inherits the style and modern aesthetics of the year. The case is 41 mm in diameter and the ceramic case is sharply angled and polished in combination with a polished and satin-finished finish. The round bezel adds a touch of femininity to the watch.

The crown on one side is engraved with a star logo and is made of non-slip texture. It has a first-class feel and is easy to adjust.

The avant-garde openwork dial combines multiple levels of cutout design with visual movement originals to interpret the star structure in an ultra-modern perspective. The time markers and hands are covered with Super-LumiNova SLN C1 luminous material, which exudes a sparkling green light in the quiet night, making it a unique sight in the sleepless city. The unique date display circle is located on the outer edge of the dial and reads the time information from the display window at 6 o’clock.

The white hydrogenated nitrile rubber matched to the white case is full of modern sportiness and is fitted with a titanium double-fold clasp for easy wear.

The Elite 670 self-winding movement is clearly visible through the transparent sapphire case back. The overall structure of the movement has been re-arranged with a silicon pallet and an escape wheel, and the star-shaped balance with the satin-matte finish is exquisite. The movement has at least 48 hours of power reserve.

Summary: The geometric beauty and modern style are presented in the new DEFY Classic series of ceramic watches. The single-tone color highlights the exquisite micro-mechanics, and the brand’s self-developed movement is a blessing, providing a new choice for modern trendsetters.
