Extremely practical displays on the dial
In addition to the precise display of the hundredths of a second, the timepiece has a central chronograph display, a 30-minute counter at 3 o'clock. And a 60-second counter at 6 o'clock. Very practical is also the power reserve display at the 12 o'clock position. At a glance, the sophisticated technology tells you how long the Zenith Defy El Primero will continue ticking. The case is made of brushed titanium and is waterproof to 10 ATM. The dial is elegantly skeletonized. The noble chronograph is attached to a bracelet made of black rubber with a coating of alligator leather. This is closed with a double folding clasp, also made of titanium.
More than 300 patents in 150 years
The Swiss watch manufacturer Zenith was founded over 150 years ago by the young Georges Favre-Jacot. Since then, the Manufacture has played a pioneering role in the production of complex timepieces. Since the company was a collection of knowledge from the art of watchmaking, Zenith was able to apply for more than 300 patents. Wristwatches, pocket watches, but also on-board instruments were produced by Zenith. The Zenith caliber El Primero, released in 1969, became one of the greatest legends in watch history. It impresses with a frequency of no less than 36,000 vibrations per hour. In addition, this calibre was the world's first integrated chronograph with automatic winding.
