The new DEFY 21 and DEFY Classic Black & White from Zenith
While the DEFY 21 and DEFY Classic have gone through numerous iterations that incorporate exotic materials and vibrant colors, the Zenith Boutique-exclusive Black & White editions take on a drastically different approach with an achromatic palette.
These on-trend reinterpretations of the two most emblematic models in the DEFY collection emphasize their singularly bold architecture through heavily contrasting black and white tones put forth in an enticing manner, providing a decidedly contemporary yet versatile choice for the styleconscious watch aficionado of today.
Featuring a matte micro blasted black ceramic case in 44mm for the DEFY 21 and 41mm for the DEFY Classic, the muted finish enhances the sleek lines of the faceted case as it absorbs light rather than reflect it. The two emblematic DEFY pieces are paired with white ceramic bezels for a sharp contrast, giving way to the three-dimensional dials of both models.
On the DEFY 21, a white 1/100th of a second scale and 30-minute chronograph counter appear to seemingly float above the blackened movement. On the DEFY Classic, the ultra-modern open dial with a central star motif is given a similar treatment in this Boutique-exclusive edition, with a white flange ring and a blackened symmetrical open dial. As the finishing touch, a black and white corduraeffect rubber strap completes the theme. For a more understated look, both editions of the DEFY Black & White also come with a second strap in textured black rubber.
The DEFY 21 Black & White and DEFY Classic Black & White are available exclusively at Zenith Boutiques and e-shop from August 31, 2020.
