Zenith Defy 21 Spectrum

The Swiss brand continues to express the theme of high-frequency chronometry through light and colours in the scintillating Defy 21 Spectrum bejewelled collection.

W

hile brightly coloured dials have recently enjoyed a comeback in watchmaking, Zenith has taken an unexpected and novel approach in the Defy 21 Spectrum series, by incorporating striking colours everywhere but the dial.

At the core of this striking and highly exclusive collection is the El Primero 21, Zenith’s revolutionary 1/100th of a second chronograph calibre that beats at the astonishing rate of 50Hz (360’000 VpH). The fastest chronograph in production and the only one to accurately and legibly measure and display 1/100th of a second time measurements, the El Primero 21 elevates high-frequency chronometry to uncharted new heights. To express this exceptional mechanical prowess, Zenith has sought to visualize the notion of frequencies through colour and lights.

Each version in the Defy 21 Spectrum series features a bezel set with 44 baguette-cut precious stones, with matching coloured movements and rubber straps: green tsavorites for the green edition, orange sapphires for the orange edition, blue sapphires for the blue edition, amethyst garnets for the purple edition, and black spinels for the black edition.

Aptly named Spectrum after the range of colours produced by the different wavelengths of visible light, this collection of dazzling Defy 21 pieces consists of five models that take on different frequencies of visible light. The common element across these five models is the 44mm stainless steel case, which has been entirely embellished with 288 brilliant-cute white diamonds.
