All shapes and sizes…
It seems that 2022 has, so far, been the year of the Defy for Zenth, as they have expanded their line considerably, including a re-edition of the original Defy from 1969.
This classic vintage Defy, with the octagonal case with scalloped edges and, on this model, a 14-sided bezel. The case and bezel remain in fantastic condition. The matte silver dial has ‘doorstop’ applied hour markers and cool rectangular lume plots on the outer edge of the dial that have taken on an awesome yellow patina. The hands are a shade lighter and although tritium, we believe the seconds hand may be relumed. The watch is fitted with its very rare original double-signed Ladder bracelet that was manufactured by Gay Frères, with a clasp stamped ‘4 69’ and ref Z6 endlinks.

The bracelet will fit a wrist size up to 17cm but it does have a diver extension.
