Zenith Defy High Jewelry

Zenith unveils a total of four High Jewelry editions of its Defy El Primero 21 and Defy Classic models.

Defy El Primero

Already a statement piece with its unrivalled 100th of a second chronograph movement  - the Calibre El Primero 9004 automatic - and resolutely contemporary looks, the Defy El Primero 21 High Jewelry pushes boundaries even further. It comes in a 44 mm rose gold case entirely set with brilliant cut white diamonds and the bezel is adorned with baguette cut diamonds.

And if diamonds aren’t enough, the Defy El Primero 21 High Jewelry Rainbow is as joyfully festive as it is an enchanting combination of watchmaking and gem-setting prowess coming seamlessly together. On the rose gold case, white diamonds of varying sizes are applied in a seemingly random pattern, in a technique known as snow setting. The bezel takes on the vibrant “rainbow” treatment, where 44 baguette-cut sapphires are meticulously picked and arranged in a progressive colour scheme that spans the entire visible light spectrum. This rainbow effect continues on to the open dial, where the hour markers are set with sapphires matching those on the bezel.

Defy Classic 

Perfectly proportioned and boasting a uniquely conceived open dial and movement - the Calibre Elite 670 SK Automatic - the Defy Classic has all the makings of the perfect daily companion. Making this modern icon even more outstanding is the Defy Classic High Jewelry, with a 41 mm titanium case set with brilliant cut-diamonds and baguette diamonds on the bezel. This bejewelled edition retains the signature Zenith blue touches throughout, from the dial to the rubber and alligator leather strap.

Adding a spectacular pop of colour to this model is the Defy Classic High Jewelry Rainbow. As white is the combination of all colours, it serves as the perfect backdrop for the rainbow effect on the Defy Classic, with 48 unique baguette cut sapphires on the bezel arranged by colour graduation, complemented by brilliant white diamonds on the titanium case for the perfect scintillating touch.
