The sword refers to yin and yang, with distinct characteristics, and is specially presented for the Chinese market. Below, please join us to appreciate the detailed design of the watch:
Zenith’s “Yaojin” flies
First of all, let’s take a look at the latest PILOT pilot series Chinese limited edition watch in the picture. This watch still maintains the most significant design features of Zenith’s “Dafei”: a wide disc, huge luminous hour markers, and hands. And the “onion head” crown, etc., with a full flight watch charm. In addition, Zenith also gave it an extremely retro bronze case and a particularly eye-catching “Yellow Gold” color plate, which makes the appearance more conspicuous.

Today, this design has become an important design element for all pilot copy watches.

Zenith “Black and Black” high frequency timing
The other one of the limited editions in China, the DEFY series EL PRIMERO 21 Chinese limited edition watch in the picture, is positioned with the term “black black”. Under the low-key, deep black appearance, the connotation is dazzling. The golden movement has a meaning of “deeply hidden”, which is both stable and rich in connotation.
The most eye-catching aspect of the DEFY series is the internal movement configuration. The high-frequency EL PRIMERO high-frequency chronograph movement inside this watch is shown in the picture. For chronographs, the timing and running parts share the same escapement wheel and interfere with each other.

Looking at the dial, the dial has a 30-minute counter at 3 o’clock, a 60-second counter at 6 o’clock, and a small seconds counter at 9 o’clock. The chronograph button is activated, and the central golden chronograph hands rotate around the dial every second. A lap, extraordinarily cool.
Zenith equipped this watch with a black ceramic case. The side is treated with a wire drawing process to resist scratches and wear. The case has strong lines and a sense of geometry, with a very strong sense of future design.

On both sides are square chronograph buttons, and the chronograph components run smoothly.
The watch is equipped with an all-black leather strap, which perfectly matches the overall “black black” tone. The inner side of the strap is equipped with a rubber lining, making it extremely comfortable to wear daily.
