What we have here is a colorful new version of the Defy 21, a super-high-frequency chronograph from Zenith, awith deep historical knowledge about making chronos tuned to beat fast. Looking at the strap, and then a bit more closely at the dial and movement, one sees that the color violet has been paired with a faceted, matte titanium .
The violet hue of the dial is actually on the movement, and on top of that movement has been placed what amounts to a partial dial – really just the flange and seconds/minutes track, some hour markers, and the three solid subdials. Is the color a bit loud? Sure. But it’s not bluster. The name of this watch hints at the frequency of light just beyond human perception, fitting for such a high-frequency chronograph mechanism.
