It was clear from Zenith’s 2018 collection that the Defy line was a major priority. Because while there were Pilot, Chronomaster and Elite models on offer, the Defy was the star of the show, with everything from the awesomely complex El Primero Zero G through to the comparatively simple, but still quality, Defy Classics. It’s easy to see why this line is the focus — it’s a bold, distinctive look, with a modern case shape and a tendency towards contemporary materials, but the overall package is still stylistically versatile. But perhaps most important of all, it’s a look that will perhaps open the brand up to a whole new audience.
