Led by innovation and inspired by marine chronometers, the new Defy Zero G (for Gravity) features the high-frequency in-house El Primero 8812S manual-winding calibre, paired with a miniature, fine-tuned Gravity Control gyroscopic module. It neutralises the effects of gravity on the smooth running of the watch by making sure that the regulator and balance wheel are always in a horizontal position.
Back in 1969, Zenith’s unprecedented choice of dial colours for the El Primero also set a new trend. The combination of light grey, anthracite, and blue has become its aesthetic code. This design DNA is evident in this black rhodium-treated skeletonised movement of the Defy Zero G, which is visible through the sapphire crystal from both sides.
Functions include the hours and minutes on an open-worked dial, with blue counter offset at 12 o’clock, small seconds at 9 o’clock, self-regulating Gravity Control module at 6 o’clock, and 50-hour power-reserve indicator at 2 o’clock. The Defy Zero G is unashamedly masculine, and its 44mm case is available in pink gold or titanium. It’s water-resistant to 100m and comes with your choice of an integrated metal bracelet or a rubber strap coated with alligator leather. Picot & Moss, 011-669-0500
