Zenith Defy Extreme Grande Date Stealth

Inspired by the Stealth Bombers that no radar can detect, the Defy Stealth did not in fact go unnoticed when it took the Public Award at the Grand Prix de l’Horlogerie in Geneva. This year, ZENITH is pushing the boundaries even further, and presenting a new, even more extreme version.

Cased entirely in black or grey titanium, this timepiece features an unexpectedly sporty design picked out in extreme colours, a matte red that highlights the balance-wheel bridge and the helical hand of the 30-minute counter.

Incorporating shock-resistant technology and ZENITHIUM bridges, the Defy Stealth includes the new Open Grande Date 4039 SX movement and an El Primero Chronograph with a 3-disk Grande Date, a unique, patented system. Offered as a limited edition of 250 pieces in each colour, this futuristic timepiece cannot leave anyone unmoved.
