Zenith unveiled the DEFY 21 Spectrum series that features vibrant colors everywhere but the dial. Whether it’s the colored chronograph movements achieved through innovative pigmentation processes or the natural brilliance and hue of precious stones, the watch is a new twist on kinetic vibrancy.
This highly exclusive collection is powered by the El Primero 21, Zenith’s revolutionary 1/100th of a second chronograph calibre that beats at the extraordinary rate of 50Hz (360’000 VpH). It is the fastest chronograph in production and the only one to accurately and legibly measure and display 1/100th of a second time measurements. To express this exceptional mechanical prowess, Zenith has sought to reflect the notion of frequencies through color and lights.
Zenith DEFY 21 Spectrum collection of dazzling timepieces includes five models that take on different frequencies of visible light. These five models feature the 44mm stainless steel case, which has been entirely garnished with 288 brilliant-cut white diamonds. Each version features a bezel set with 44 baguette-cut precious stones, with matching colored movements and rubber straps: green tsavorites for the green edition, orange sapphires for the orange edition, blue sapphires for the blue edition, amethyst for the purple edition, and black spinels for the black edition.
To create these exceptional watches, Zenith used the laborious selection of stones of the same size, color and VVS quality, then meticulously setting them into the metal by the hands of skilled artisans.
Each limited to 10 pieces, the DEFY 21 Spectrum collection is exclusively available at Zenith boutiques around the world.
