Briefly mentioned, he will focus on the innovations in both product offerings and engaging the watch-buyers.  He may even considering redesigning next Basel booth to
make it more inclusive to welcome the visitors.  Perhaps something special for 50th anniversary of El Primero.


Some of the pieces passed around during the event ...

Firstly the star of the show ... The new  44mm titanium case skeletonised 'Defy Zero G' with a gyroscopic “Gravity Control” module.

For the bracelet version, please check out the post by Marcus.



Next the 41mm brushed titanium Defy Classic Deep Blue with automatic Elite 670SK calibre.

It looks better in metal than in photographs.

Wonder if it may look better without the wording 'Defy' ...

From a more chic look, a skeletonised Defy Classic. At least the word Defy is not on the dial.

Thank you for this report; my favorite is the Defy Skeleton  It has a strong look but not overly busy. Cheers, Cazalea

Agreed ... For me, I prefer either the Defy Classic Skeleton (wondered why Zenith uses the word 'Classic'' on their web for the skeletonised version) or the CP-2 Flyback Bronze. Thanks for viewing, Cazalea. Kong

It is 'classic' for all the current time only version, just the EP 21 and the Lab are different. The reason might be that Zenith considers a movement which - as far as modern technologies go - only features a silicon escapement as a 'traditional' watch... Thanks for your excellent and superbly photographed report, Kong! Magnus

Disclaimer: This article does not intend to promote or to undermine any aspects of the watch, and is purely a study of the movement out of interest by a non-professional hobbyist.
