Zenith Drops Defy Extreme Automatic Watch

Totally extreme.


This is most definitely not your Dad‘s Zenith, the electronics manufacturer that turned out affordable TVs back in the day. The luxury watchmaker might share the name, but all the proof you need that Zenith means excellence is found in their new Defy Extreme,  an automatic watch designed for precision and durability.


The Defy Extreme runs off Zenith’s El Primero 9004 automatic movement within a 45 mm titanium case. The sapphire dial has been designed for depth and clarity, making it easy to use the watch’s practical functions.


The watchmaker’s list of specs includes the following:

  • 1 escapement for the Watch (36,000 VpH – 5 Hz) ;
  • 1 escapement for the Chronograph (360,000 VpH – 50Hz)
  • Certified Chronometer
  • Interchangeable strap system
  • 2 straps included — 1 Rubber with folding buckle & 1 Velcro
  • Sapphire dial
  • Screwed-in crown
  • 50 hours of power reserve
