Notes

While most examples of the Defy Diver, with its typical octagonal 1970’s case , are often found in very worn and poor condition, this example shows sharp angles, a mint dial, as well as clear numbers on the caseback which are often erased, signs of a very well conserved timepiece. A similar example can be found in Rössler, Zenith: Swiss Watch Manufacture Since 1865,p. 154.
