Historical Luxury in the Zenith Defy
The company that makes this one of a kind timepiece was founded in 1865 by the then 22 year old man Georges Favre-Jacot. He innovated and came up with the concept of in house large scale manufacture. The young man got a good number of fine artisan watchmakers to work under one roof producing the best watches of the time. With the Defy, this company has etched a niche into the extreme sports horizon and is excelling there too.
Essentially an extreme sports type of watch, the Defy timepiece is targeted at sportsmen and women who prefer the more unique choices of sport. These include divers, sailors and rock climbers. The Zenith Defy timepiece allows you to dive up to 1,000 meters without water seepage into the inner movement. For the rock climbers, the steel casing employs a shock proofing system that is unrivalled by any other manufacturer.
