Zenith Defy Classic Open

        Born in 1865, in the cradle of world’s Haute Horology, Le Locle, in the Swiss Jura Mountains, Zenith is a famous watch-making brand known for creating high-precision timepieces which carry on the brand’s centenary tradition of craftsmanship and mastery, up to a pure horological sate of art.

        Defined by a name embedded with mythological connotations, meaning the highest point vertically up in the sky, Zenith has been traditionally associated with the continuous struggle of breaking the known boundaries of innovation and creativity, and also as the pinnacle of watch-making purity and artisanship. Throughout the years, the brand raised to the height of its fame, being awarded over 1500 international prizes, having patented more then 50 distinct mechanical movements and creating one of the best chronograph, mechanical movements in the world, the legendary El Primero. Moreover this brand acquired its international prestige for designing highly exclusivist timepieces, defined by a clear-cut individuality, and immaculate precision.


        In order to celebrate a very fruitful intertwining with the adrenaline-inflicting world of motor sports, Zenith introduced a brand new collection defined by masculine robustness, bold vanguard design and racy high-end details, the Zenith Defy collection, and Defy Classic Open Watch is one of the models which enriches this collection.

        At the core of this timepiece beats the iconic harmonic El Primero caliber, an SC 4021 which beats at a rate of 36,000 vibrations per hour and which can be admired through a wide aperture located between 9 and 10 o’clock positions.

        Zenith Defy Classic Open features a robust case measuring 46.5 or 43 mm in diameter and which is manufactured either from stainless steel or a combination of stainless steel and brushed rose gold revealing a meticulous attention to the refinement and purity of the finest detail.

        The sophisticated model is completed by a black or silvery dial that includes, asides from the 9 o’clock window, a power reserve indicator, located at 6 o’clock position, also it features applied indexes and Arabic numeral hour markers which have received luminescent coating in order to provide a perfect time readability in poor or no light conditions.

        This powerful sporty timepiece is furthermore completed by a stamped crocodile leather or natural rubber strap, it features a 50 hours power reserve, winds in both directions and it is capable of measuring short intervals up to a 10th of second, becoming thus a great companion for an active man, all in all spiced up with a price of $10,155.00, Zenith Defy Classic Open will still remain a fashionable bold accessory of irreproachable functionality.
