Description
Zenith - Defy-300m-1969 - A3681 - Unisex - 1960-1969
Automatic - Steel

Very rare unpolished Zenith defy, originally 300 m waterproof. The special thing about this model is that it is the extremely rare variation with the 21,600 bph mechanism, as opposed to the later 28,000 bph mechanism. It is fitted with a calibre 2552 PC, which was recently serviced and received an entirely new calendar mechanism. The date disk is original, with a beautiful even patina, just like the dial. It was originally a blue dial, but due to the reaction to sunlight it has evolved, acquiring a wonderful patina.

The watch still has its original crown, this is a screwed crown which facilitates water resistance.

Furthermore, this watch dates from 1969. The original GF strap is not included, but instead the watch is fitted with a beautiful Panerai style strap.

The measurements of the watch are as follows:
Diameter: 37 mm
Length from lug to lug: 44.5 mm
Strap attachment: 18 mm
Total length: 23 cm
Thickness: 14 mm

Shipped with track and trace, in a box.
