Zenith - Russia Edition of the DEFY El Primero 21

Zenith Russia Edition of the DEFY El Primero 21

Zenith and Russia Come Together for a Russia Edition of the DEFY El Primero 21 limited to 35 pieces.

A limited edition of 35 pieces made exclusively for Zenith’s longstanding Russian retailers, the Defy El Primero 21 Russia Edition reimagines the future-classic Defy El Primero 21 in a sleek black and red palette. Entirely black – inside and out – with some striking accents in red, this special edition of the Defy El Primero 21 is bound to turn heads.

Red is perhaps the most prominent and symbolic colour in Russian culture. In fact, the Russian word for red, krasni, was used in the past to denote something beautiful, good or honourable. For this exclusive execution of the Defy El Primero 21, the powerful colour is used sparingly, with just the right amount of red in all the right places to keep the stealthy, dark silhouette intact.

Housed within a satin-brushed, polished and matte finished black ceramic case and bezel with a touch of red around the crown, the tone is set for the rest of the Defy El Primero 21 Russia Edition. From the open dial, one can admire the skeleton architecture of the innovative El Primero 21 1/100th of a second chronograph calibre, which is exceptionally finished in a darker black tone for this special series, compared to the lighter grey usually used in the standard Defy El Primero 21 models.

Above the high-frequency movement, touches of red are tastefully applied throughout the open dial, from the hour markers and chronograph counters to the hands and power reserve indicator. The engraved case back features a sapphire display back, allowing the wearer to admire the intricacies of the innovative high-frequency chronograph movement, here finished in a black tone.

Offering discerning collectors the chance to give the Defy El Primero 21 Russia Edition different looks, the watch comes with three straps: A red rubber strap with a black alligator central element and red stitching, and two textured rubber straps in black and red. Keeping with the black and red theme, the watch is delivered in a black box with red lining, continuing a special compartment for the additional straps and strap-changing tool.
