On 29th June 2018, Swiss luxury watch brand Zenith opened a pop-up pod on Sardinia’s Emerald Coast at Porto Cervo and unveiled a 25-piece the special edition DEFY EL PRIMERO 21 PORTO CERVO watch highlighted with ocean colours.
Like its predecessors, the limited edition TIME LAB-Chronometer certified DEFY EL PRIMERO 21 PORTO CERVO features a gleaming 44 mm titanium case inspired by the shape of the original El Primero models from the early 1970s. A pristine white ceramic bezel surrounds the DEFY EL PRIMERO 21 PORTO CERVO’s white skeleton dial revealing the contemporary decor and key identifying characteristics epitomising the face of the new Zenith range.
Deep blue accents on the hour-markers, hands and crown offset its streamlined white and titanium good looks, with a blue and white chronograph power-reserve indication appearing at 12 o’clock, hours and minutes in the centre, small seconds at 9 o’clock, along with white 60-second and 30-minute counters at 6 o’clock and 3 o’clock respectively.
The DEFY EL PRIMERO 21 PORTO CERVO offers a choice of two striking straps including white rubber covered with a sophisticated blue alligator leather coating and the comfort of supple white rubber both finished with the EL PRIMERO 21’s trademark titanium double folding clasp.
Complete with a case back bearing the engraved design of a yacht on the crest of a wave and the name Porto Cervo, the DEFY EL PRIMERO 21 PORTO CERVO is driven by a movement enabling 1/100th of a second precision and endowed with a 50-hour power reserve.
