Further developing the Defy 21 that dispatched in 2017, Zenith has recently declared the expansion of the Porto Cervo Edition — a 25-piece restricted delivery honoring the opulent Sardinian port city.
Zenith Defy 21 Porto Cervo Edition
First created as a private retreat for the Aga Kahn during the ’50s and ’60s, Porto Cervo is one of the more select extravagance destinations in the Mediterranean, and a superb candidate for this sort of restricted delivery. Close by a threesome of restricted versions intended for Swizz Beats , and a smooth Vendome release , what makes the Porto Cervo Edition interesting beside its engraved sapphire caseback is this is the first occasion when we are seeing the combination of a brushed titanium case and white artistic bezel on the Defy 21. White subtleties on its skeletonized dial and lash further compliment the bezel choice, and are combined with an elegant shade of medium blue for its tie, files and hands. With these late spring destination-themed watches, brands have a talent for either going excessively splendid with the shading range, or essentially being excessively blundering with the utilization of white (this Audemars Piguet Hotel Byblos Offshore comes to mind). On account of this Zenith, its originators were thoughtful enough that the Porto Cervo release will not appear to be strange once fall and winter move around.
The unimaginably innovative chronograph utilizes a twofold equilibrium configuration
The internal operations of this latest Defy 21 chronograph stay unaltered when compared to its kin, and honestly make up its key selling features. The extraordinarily innovative chronograph utilizes a twofold equilibrium configuration, with the equilibrium for time running at Zenith’s typical high-beat 5Hz (36,000 vibrations each hour), and its chronograph balance running at a monstrous 50Hz (360,000 vibrations each hour). This arrangement permits the chronograph to quantify 1/100th of a second, what while completely pointless is as yet an amazing feat. It’s focal chronograph hand makes one full rotation of the dial each subsequent when activated, with its six o’clock subdial estimating chronograph seconds. A 30-minute chronograph subdial is situated at three o’clock. Its openworked dial gives its wearer a smart view into the special type, with both equilibrium wheels being obvious from the dial side of the watch.
Further adding to the Defy 21’s allure is its case plan and generally comfort, however estimating 44mm across, it is still relatively compact from one carry to another. Its extents are along these lines as a Royal Oak Offshore, however the utilization of titanium for its case makes it a reasonable piece lighter on the wrist. The plan of its expansive pushers and crown likewise implies you’ll dodge that “delving into the wrist” feel that can come from chronographs in the event that you like to wear your watches somewhat free on the wrist. It’s a touch too thick to even think about difficult and pass off with a suit (however this is something we’ve seen Zenith CEO Julien Tornare do over and over), yet for a more easygoing day by day wearing chronograph that isn’t modest on character the Defy 21 settles on a strong decision.
