Zenith continues to surge forward with its Defy collection by giving its latest watch a complete carbon overhaul.

Arriving in usual ‘Defy’ form, the Zenith Defy Classic Carbon measures 41mm and houses a skeletonised dial revealing the openworked Elite 670 SK movement – an in-house calibre boasting a 48-hour power reserve.

The openworked dial allows the wearer to see the inner workings of the movement while the applied hour markers feature a ruthenium plated design and white lume for enhanced legibility.

Not limited to a completely carbon fibre case, the Classic Carbon is the first automatic watch to come with the option of a full carbon bracelet which brings the watch’s weight down to an impressively light 65-grams. An option of a rubber strap with a Cordura-effect and carbon and titanium folding buckle is also available.

“With the Defy Classic Carbon, Zenith brings forth an ergonomic and eye-catching solid carbon bracelet to an automatic watch, an unprecedented technical feat and edgy design statement,” says Zenith in a release.

Priced at approx. $16,160 with rubber strap and 27,180 with carbon bracelet.
