This special rendition of the DEFY 21 is made for those who see the sprawling metropolis as their playground; where a horizon of towering concrete, steel and glass opens up a world where every day is an adventure full of dreams and infinite possibilities. Audacious yet subtle, the DEFY 21 Urban Jungle deftly blends into its surroundings.

In a first for Zenith, the manufacture has cased its 1/100th of a second chronograph in a green ceramic armour for the DEFY 21 Urban Jungle. Highly scratch-resistant and intensely coloured, the Urban Jungle’s khaki green ceramic case is finished entirely with matte surface, flying under the radar while still standing out to its wearer.

Visible through the open dial with matte silver and black counters, the unrivalled high-frequency chronograph with two regulating organs is decorated with a khaki green coloured main plate and star-shaped oscillating rotor. Completing the look is a grey rubber strap with a green Cordura-effect rubber insert.
