Zenith Upgrades The Defy Classic Watch With A Solid Carbon Case & Band

Nov 5, 2020

Category: Style

Zenith is always on the edge of innovation when it comes to conventional wristwear offerings, and while the brand has visited the carbon realm with previous releases, never has it opted to create an entirely carbon-clad model. That’s all about to change with the brand’s Defy Classic Carbon.

The Zenith Defy Classic Carbon is a sleek, gentlemanly offering that adopts the brand’s all-new 41-millimeter black carbon case, providing a subtle and shadowy enclosure for its Elite in-house skeletonized movement. With a solid-carbon example such as this, you might think that weight would be the least of the company’s worries; however, there’s always room for improvement. What makes the Carbon Defy truly special is its newly-adopted, all-carbon bracelet — a first for Zenith. As a result, the watch weighs in at an unassuming 65 grams, providing accurate, precise timekeeping without all of the wrist-borne weight associated with its larger models. Head to the brand’s website to pick up one of your own for $19,500.
