Zenith watches are coveted by those in the know about fine timepieces for their flawless movement, superior engineering, beauty and terrific functionality. One would be hard pressed to find a luxury timepiece that exudes the classic, sporty good looks of Zenith's Defy Classic series of fine wristwatches.
Watches featuring classic dive-style cases in metals including brushed stainless steel, gleaming silver and lustrous 18k rose gold, characterize zenith’s well-stocked Defy Classic series. All watches feature traditional chunky, well-marked dive bezels, luminescent hours and minutes hands and large, screw-down crowns surrounded by push buttons used to control a stopwatch function. An anti-reflective, scratch-resistant sapphire crystal protects the dial, and many watches in the series include a sapphire crystal case back for an unobstructed view into the exceptional Zenith-designed and manufactured El Primero movement.
Dial designs vary across the line. The Defy Aero features a classic chronometer function, with small dials tracking 30-minute, 12-hour and 60-second time intervals at three, six and nine o'clock, respectively, with a magnified date window between four and five o'clock. The Classic Open model includes an exciting circular window in the dial that allows a view of the gyrating balance wheel, as well as a power reserve meter in the dial's lower quadrant. As its name would imply, the Classic Tourbillon Air Fly model of the Defy displays a magnificent tourbillon between nine and 12 o'clock on the dial and also includes two smaller chronograph dials. The Classic Chronograph Lady features a full bezel of brilliant white diamonds. The Defy Classic line's band options include dark and luxurious hand-stitched leather, brushed stainless steel, rubber and a blend of stainless steel and 18k rose gold.
