Zenith- Defy Extreme Sea

Founded in 1865 by its fastidious owner, Zenith, as its name connotes, represented the pinnacle of watchmaking perfection. Georges Favre-Jacot and his company was one of only a few watchmakers that manufactured complete watches. Morever, he produced these watches using up-to-date machinery and tools that he built himself.

The black dial is made of multi-layered carbon fiber and aluminium, and comes with a window allowing you to view the balance wheel. The watch has a self-winding automatic chronometer movement, with power reserve indicator.
This timepiece is water resistant by up to 3,300 feet making it a real diving watch you can carry with you even at the zenith of your underwater mission.
