The Defy collection sets its sights high. It is meant to be an experiment in watchmaking innovation and thus shape the future of Swiss watchmaking. The collection already includes extraordinary complications, such as double tourbillons, gyroscope systems and 50 Hz high-frequency chronographs, so a futuristic design with innovative materials and skeletonisation was chosen to keep up with this high standard. With this watch, ZENITH is building on its history and remaining true to its DNA.
ZENITH has turned heads throughout its history due to its major technological innovations. Think of the silicon oscillator, which completely replaced and revolutionised the traditional, centuries-old balance. Or the gyroscopic escapement, which compensates for Earth’s gravity better than any tourbillon. Throughout ZENITH’s history, it has always surpassed its competitors on the technical front and solved historically important watchmaking problems. This includes the first automatic chronograph calibre El Primero from 1969, an improved version of which has been incorporated into the Defy collection.
The Defy Extreme comes with a titanium bracelet, a rubber strap and a Velcro strap.
