Zenith Defy Collection Watches
We've covered a bunch of Zenith's watches before. Usually their watches tend to be on the elegant and restrained side so this new collection the "sport-chic" Defy Classic is a departure. The chronograph uses the El Primero 4021SC movement with 39 jewels, beating at 36,000 bph. The large stainless steel case measures in at 46.5mm and has a small seconds-hand at 9 o’clock, power reserve indicator, central seconds-hand and a 30-minute counter at 3 o’clock. The power reserve model uses the automatic Elite caliber 685SC movement with 38 jewels and a power reserve of 50 hours and is slightly smaller at 43mm. The third model is a time-only version with the automatic caliber Elite 680SC with 26 jewels and a power reserve of 50 hours and is also 43mm. The other two versions and details on the Defy Xtreme collection are after the jump.
Zenith has also launched the Defy Xtreme collection which is water-resistant to 1,000 meters and has a black titanium case, a helium valve that allows for decompression, carbon fiber inserts and multi layered dials. There are four models, a tourbillon, a chronograph, a power reserve and an open model. As much as I am against the use of the word Xtreme to label anything these are some pretty fierce looking watches.
