Introducing: The Zenith Defy El Primero 21 Chronograph

Zenith is back with another El Primero – the Defy El Primero 21. This new expansion to the assortment is a contemporary curve on an old exemplary with a titanium case, a skeletonized dial, and another development. The Defy (or as it was initially called, the Defi) has been a piece of the brand’s texture since the past times when Georges Favre-Jacot began the production in 1865. In 1969, the “i” was dropped and a “y” was added, along these lines making the Defy assortment. The assortment stayed set up until the last part of the 1990s, for certain somewhat noisy plans. Today the Defy is back with the Defy El Primero 21, and it has an entirely unexpected flavor.

Let’s beginning with the fundamentals. The Defy El Primero 21 is housed in a 44mm case suggestive of the first El Primero, with larger than usual ventured chronograph catches. There will be three forms, two in titanium and one in ceramised aluminum. The dial is open-worked in the aluminum variant, with two registers and chronograph power save (more on that in a piece). The titanium adaptation comes with either an open or shut dial. All the more critically, it is controlled by a spic and span type, the El Primero 21 (named for the 21st century – indeed, truly) with COSC chronometer certification.

The El Primero 21 highlights two separate escapements, each with an equilibrium spring made of another licensed material, Carbon-Matrix Carbon Nanotube (say that multiple times quick). One escapement is only for the time and the other only for the chronograph, with the primary running at 36,000 vph and the last running at 360,000 vph. This implies that when the chronograph is moving, the seconds hand goes around the dial once each second. The seconds are then relied on the 60-second register at six o’clock and the minutes are depended on the 30-minute register at three o’clock. Because of the measure of energy that it takes to run a chronograph at 360,000 vph, the chronograph capacity can just run for as long as 50 minutes, consequently the chronograph power save at 12 o’clock. 

High-beat chronograph types have consistently been a piece of Zenith’s center competency and it’s cool to see the production pushing the envelope here. Indeed, it’s not the most useful chronograph on the planet, but rather it’s absolutely something innovatively intriguing, particularly for stalwart chrono fans. 

The Defy El Primero is accessible in titanium with strong silvered dial for $9,600, titanium with skeletonized dial for $10,600, and cermacized aluminum for $11,600. For additional, visit Zenith on the web .
