    The Defy Classic combines an openworked dial with a sporty, brushed titanium case and an Elite movement. The Defy collection is the embodiment of Zenith’s horological complexity, including the iconic high-frequency Defy El Primero 21 and the Defy Lab, the world’s most accurate mechanical watch thanks to its monocrystalline silicon oscillator. The Defy Classic is a three-hands plus date watch with an openworked version of the automatic Elite 670 base calibre, with its silicon pallet lever and escape wheel. The dial is bordered by a blue minute ring and large applied hour markers coated with Super-LumiNova. The cut-out date disc adds to the high-tech aesthetic exuded by the blackened openworked movement. Strap options include titanium bracelet, black rubber with blue alligator leather coating or black rubber.

    When I read this I got all excited for a second and thought this was the production version of the defy lab. But no just a regular 4Hz. Sigh.
