Defying All Odds: The Zenith Defy El Primero 21 Rose Gold

Zenith Defy El Primero 21 banner

Time and time again, Zenith has pushed the limits of watchmaking by creating revolutionary timepieces. They continue to reach the height of excellence with the Defy El Primero 21 Rose Gold, which pays tribute to the historic 1969 El Primero

The timepiece features an impressive 360,000 A/H (50Hz) frequency, which makes it ten times faster than its predecessor. Faster beats equate to a more accurate and precise telling of time, and allows 1/100th of a second precision.

In addition to this, Zenith provided a separate escapement for the watch and the chronograph, so the gears of the time telling functions don’t get worn out whenever the chronograph is started or stopped.  The entire movement is chronometer certified by TIMELAB, which issues COSC certifications and Hallmark of Geneva seals.

The Defy El Primero 21 takes on some of the original El Primero’s characteristics like the star-tipped sweep seconds hand, large Baton hands and faceted hour markers. The black openworked dial displays an inner bezel with a scale numbered from 1 to 100. The seconds hand makes a full turn every second, and is triggered by the rectangular pusher at 2 o’clock. The black counter at 6 o’clock counts how many seconds have gone by, while the blue counter at 3 o’clock counts how many minutes have passed. 

The impressive El Primero 9004 automatic caliber is encased in a 44mm 18K rose gold case with a black or brown rubber strap.
