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.
