Notes

The rare and unusual Defy Gauss was the answer from Zenith to the Rolex Milgauss 1019 and the IWC Ingenieur. Featuring a dust cap and built in a strong screw-back case, the Defy Gauss was only produced in 550 pieces featuring a black dial, 600 pieces with a blue dial and 950 pieces with a silver dial, making this anti-magnetic Zenith wristwatch a rare watch indeed.
