Defy El Primero 21

Bearing the same DNA as its predecessors, Defy El Primero is a dynamic piece. Powered by the El Primero 9004 movement means it integrates a new layer of complexity by incorporating a mechanism that counts up to 1/100th of a second. It presents the exclusive dynamic signature of one rotation per second, one escapement for the Watch (36,000 VpH - 5 Hz) and one escapement for the Chronograph (360,000 VpH - 50Hz).
Certified Chronometer.

Hawaii
Founded in Le Locle in 1865 by a visionary watchmaker, Georges Favre-Jacot, the Manufacture Zenith earned swift recognition for the precision of its chronometers with which it has won 2,333 chronometry prizes in a century and a half of existence: an absolute record in terms of pocket watches, onboard timers and wristwatches. Having earned fame thanks to its legendary El Primero calibre – an integrated automatic column-wheel chronograph movement launched in 1969 and endowed with a high frequency of 36,000 vibrations per hour that ensures short-time measurements accurate to the nearest 1/10th of a second – the Manufacture Zenith has since developed over 600 movement variations. This Manufacture currently stands at the exact spot where its founder built the first company workshop, thereby physically embodying a continuity that is a rarity in itself.
