For this launch, Zenith has stripped the case of its signature ending and given it the identical bead blasted titanium remedy because the Chronomaster Revival Shadow. As a sibling to the sooner shadow, this watch makes a whole lot of sense. Whereas the Chronomaster Revival Shadow was based mostly on a selected watch from the Zenith archives, the Defy Shadow is kind of a flight of fancy. As we all know from the Chronomaster, Zenith experimented with coatings to darken instances in the course of the prototyping stage, however in contrast to that earlier watch, the Defy Shadow doesn’t have a historic precedent. Truthfully, although, that’s a part of the enjoyable. It’s not a stretch of the creativeness to imagine that this might have been the product of some off-the-books, Zenith skunk-works operation at a time when the model was on the peak of their creativity.
This launch marks the primary time Zenith’s ladder bracelet has been crafted in titanium and given the identical darkish matte end because the case. The ladder bracelet is an indispensable a part of the Defy’s attraction. A watch like this that’s so playful with its type wouldn’t look proper on a standard bracelet – it actually must be mounted to one thing that matches its weirdness. The ladder bracelet does that, and in metal it has at all times been a stable ergonomic match for the medium sized case. We’ll go hands-on with this one quickly, however we think about it is going to be in a very “I forgot I used to be sporting that” territory of lightness.
