Following the reveal of the DEFY Revival A3691 – the second model in ZENITH‘s collection of reproduced iconic DEFY watches – the watchmaker continues to bring back some of its most emblematically colorful DEFY references with the DEFY Revival A3690.
First launched in 1970, the A3690 with its tropical teal blue dial was among the earliest references to feature colored dials. Something of a ZENITH signature, many of the brand’s Boutique Editions across the main collections have featured highlights in blue – including in the dial and movement. As such, the DEFY Revival A3690 is available exclusively at ZENITH physical and online boutiques around the world.
The DEFY Revival A3690 features all the details and singular design elements that made the first-ever DEFY wristwatch an outstanding reference of its time. This includes a faceted octagonal case paired with a fourteen-sided bezel, a teal-blue dial with a prominent vignette effect that darkens towards the edges, unusual applied square hour markers feature horizontal grooves, and the now-iconic Gay Frères steel “ladder” bracelet, which has now been updated with a more modern and ergonomic folding clasp.
The sapphire crystal, the display case back and the type of luminescent pigments are the only cosmetic differences between the Revival and the historical reference. The water resistance of 30ATM (300 meters) has also been maintained from the original, even with the addition of a display back. Instead of the original’s solid case back embellished with a four-pointed star, the DEFY Revival A3690 features a sapphire display back showing the automatic Elite 670 manufacture movement, operating at a frequency of 4 Hz (28,800 VpH) and providing autonomy of 50 hours.
