Zenith recently launched a new version of its super fast hundredths of a second chronograph model, the Defy El Primero 21 that was first introduced at Baselworld 2017.
The new Defy 21 Urban Jungle pairs the advanced manufacture movement with a bold look characterised by khaki green tones.
Equipped with a fluted crown and rectangular chronograph pushers, the 44 mm x 14.50 mm case is crafted from scratch-resistant ceramic, entirely finished with matte surface.
Visible through the open dial with matte silver and black counters, the El Primero 9004 automatic movement is decorated with a khaki green coloured main plate and star-shaped oscillating rotor.
This high-frequency chronograph has two regulating organs: the first beats at 36,000 vibrations per hour (5 Hz), while the escapement for the chronograph at 360,000 vibrations per hour (50 Hz) enabling it to reach chronometer-certified tenth of a second precision. The central chronograph hand performs a full turn of the dial in one second.
This COSC-certified movement has a 50-hour power reserve, matched by a 50-minute autonomy for the hundredth of a second chronograph.
Water resistant to 100 metres / 330 feet, the Zenith Defy 21 Urban Jungle ref. 49.9006.9004/90.R942 is completed by a grey rubber strap with a green cordura-effect rubber insert and has a retail price of CHF 14,400. zenith-watches.com
