The high-frequency El Primero 21 1/100th chronograph in a 44mm matte titanium DEFY case, paired with a blue and black rubber strap. Its automatic movement finished in blue tones features two independent high-frequency escapements beating at 50Hz for the chronograph function and 5Hz for timekeeping.

Visible through the open dial, which features three grey chronograph registers and a grey flange ring, the vibrant blue movement is accentuated by the Defy 21’s uniquely avant-garde movement conception and design with open, angular bridges. A white-tipped central 1/100th of a second chronograph hand makes a complete revolution above the dial in one second. 

Allowing the blue-treated bridges of the movement to truly stand out while providing a more striking contrast, the faceted 44mm case of the Defy is given an entirely matte sandblasted finish, bringing out the darker metallic nuances of titanium. Complementing the tones of the open movement the black rubber strap features a blue insert that mimics the look of woven textile.
