In traditional European culture, purple symbolizes nobility, and purple is the most frequent color in visible light. Zenith confers this strong and vibrant color with the most frequent chronograph Zenith Defy 21 in conventional production. The most important reason why purple is noble is that "things are rare". In the ancient Mediterranean area, purple has been a long-term conservative secret. It is made from glands from bone snails. It is rumored that 12,000 bone snails can be successfully squeezed. 1.4 grams of Bay Violet dye was produced.
In ancient Roman times, this unique purple color was commonly seen in a shoulder-length male robe at the time, which was both a symbol of wealth and a patent for high society. From kings, high-ranking officials and even priests, they wear purple-rimmed white robes, and the gods enshrined in robes are all purple, far exceeding the level of value. It was not until 1856 that humans discovered that pigments that could replace bone snail purple were chemically refined. Today, violets show a bold, confident and whimsical feel from sports cars to tailor-made clothing. However, in the watch manufacturing industry, especially men's watches, purple is still very rare. The more famous ones are the two brands Zenith and richard mille, you want to buy 1:1 richard mille replica
. But what we are going to discuss today is Purple Zenith Defy 21 Watch.
Zenith was the world's first in the watchmaking industry in 2020, using a magnificent, violet automatic chronograph movement. Zenith chose its revolutionary 1/100-second second hand El Primero 21 chronograph movement, beating at an incredible 50Hz frequency, as this visually and mechanically stunning creative canvas. At first glance, the violet element may seem large, but the color is not excessive. This is a deep purple, which is essentially a two-color table of violet and dark gray. The use of a micro-sprayed titanium case helps reduce the visual prominence of the Zenith Defy 21 Watch reference
The Zenith Defy 21 Watch's 44mm cut-out case is fully frosted and blasted to make the movement's purple-treated bridge truly stand out, while providing a sharper contrast and exuding the dark nuances of titanium. The rubber strap adopts the tone of the open movement, which can be changed from warm violet to cool purple, which complements the violet lining and the appearance of the woven textiles. Apart from the color, the appearance is very similar to other versions of Defy 21. Purple Zenith Defy 21 Watch is a 44 mm large case with a thick case and an open dial with a high-tech appearance. As can be seen through the open dial with three gray chronographs and gray flange rings, the vibrant violet movement is highlighted by Defy 21s unique avant-garde movement concept and open angle bridge design. 1/100 second chronograph white large second hand is located in the center of the dial.
The largest structural components of El Primero 9004 (i.e., bridge and rotor) have been anodized to form a metallic purple surface, the color of which changes according to light and angle, thus adding a dynamic visual element to the mechanical device. It is worth noting that the color of the purple movement is similar to the color of the silicon escapement.
