Zenith was born in Switzerland in 1865. It has always combined the beauty and precision of mechanical watches with bold ideas, which has injected brand-new blood into the watchmaking world. Zenith added a new model to its classic DEFY series this year. Three different main colors-black, white and blue-present a distinctive color texture, showing a contemporary elegant charm. Next, we will take the white models as an example to take a look at the unique charm of Zenith’s new DEFYClassic series watches. (Watch model: 49.9002.670 / 01.R792)
The beauty of pure avant-garde
The DEFYClassic series interprets the new futuristic watchmaking skills in a pure form. The overall geometric shape and unique futuristic structure create a strong three-dimensional beauty. For the first time, the three new watches launched this year use hard-textured and overall colored ceramic materials. The exquisite and delicate appearance creates a modern and fashionable atmosphere, suitable for the avant-garde of modern cities.
Watch real shot
This watch draws inspiration from the original Zenith DEFY series in the 1970s, inheriting the style and modern aesthetics of the year. The case diameter is 41 millimeters. The case is made of ceramic with sharp edges and corners. At the same time, it is polished with a combination of polishing and satin frosting. The round bezel design adds a touch of femininity to the watch.
The crown on the side is engraved with a star logo and is made of non-slip texture.
The avant-garde skeletonized dial integrates the multilayered skeletonized design with the original visual movement, and interprets the star structure from an ultramodern perspective. The hour markers and hands are covered with Super-LumiNovaSLNC1 luminous material, which emits green light in the quiet night, becoming a unique scenery in the sleepless city. The unique date display circle is located on the outer edge of the dial, and the time information is read from the display window at 6 o’clock.
The white hydrogenated nitrile rubber that matches the white case is full of modern sports, and the titanium double-folding buckle is easy to wear.
The Elite670 automatic movement is clearly visible through the transparent sapphire case back. The overall structure of the movement has been re-arranged, equipped with a silicon escapement fork and escape wheel, and a star-shaped balance wheel with satin-finished finish is very beautiful. The movement has a power reserve of at least 48 hours.
Summary: The geometric beauty and modern style are presented in Zenith’s new DEFYClassic series ceramic watches. The single-tone color scheme highlights the exquisite micromechanics. The movement independently developed by the brand gives it a blessing. (Picture / text watch home Wu Fengqi)
