zenith defy el primero 21 carbon dial closeup



The Le Locle manufacture is firmly anchored in its century. The evidence is found in the aesthetic and mechanical advantages of this chronograph, which is able to measure time to the nearest 1/100th of a second.

Must we still talk about futuristic design? Carbon definitively marks the watchmaking industry with its footprint. The heterogeneous streaks of the composite fibers used to machine the cases create a design that is now clearly identifiable and linked to our times. The Defy El Primero 21 Carbon presents this singularity thanks to a relevant use of the material. Not only does it reinforce the masculine style of the timepiece, but it also enhances its mechanical architecture, which can be seen through the openwork dial. On this 44mm diameter monochrome composition, the time information is revealed by black Super-LumiNova® SLN on the hour and minute hands and indexes.
