Model: Defy-300m-1969
Reference Number: A3681

Movement: Automatic
Case material: Steel
Type: Analogue wristwatch (More lots)

Condition: In working condition with visible traces of use

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.

    horloge is goed aangekomen ik weet van de service beurt die het horloge nodig had zoals de verkoper aan gaf maar niet dat de kroon enkel maar werkte voor het uur te verzetten, moet hersteld worden

    Beste, het horloge heeft geen quickset hierdoor is de enige functie van de kroon het uur juist zetten en opwinden. Mijn excuses als ik dit niet volledig aangegeven heb in de omschrijving maar naarmate het uurwerk uit de jaren 60 dateert en afgezien van seiko de quickset pas echt ingeburgerd was sedert begin jaren 80 dacht ik dat het meerendeel van de horlogeliefhebbers hiervan op de hoogte waren. Mijn excuses hiervoor! Groeten, Bert
