Talking Watches With Todd Levin. What we have here is a trio of new ish ceramic Defy watches from Zenith. As you can see, they have undeniably modern looks, and yet the name, and certain elements of the watch’s design — most obviously the case — are inheritors of a design language dating from the late ’60s to early ’70s, even though the case is made from a material that watchmakers only began utilizing some time later.

Looking at the modern Defy and understanding the history of Zenith, I think that the three watches we are looking at today represent well-executed examples of how a watchmaker can evolve designs and use new materials while still honoring its history.
