Based on another iconic timepiece from Zenith’s archives, the DEFY Revival A3691 is a faithful remake of the A3691, based on an important 1971 reference. Outfitted with a vibrant red dial in a vignette effect, the DEFY Revival A3691 also marks the first of its kind to receive a vividly colored dial.
Reproduced using Zenith’s historical production plans, the DEFY Revival A3691 is presented with accurate details of the A3691 while distinguishing itself as a modern iteration — from the faceted octagonal case with a 14-sided bezel, and red vignetting dial with darkened edges, to its iconic Gay Fréres “ladder” bracelet. Aside from the color of the dial, the revived model also sets itself apart from its original inspiration on both the cosmetic and technical front, this includes an updated sapphire crystal, caseback, type of luminescent pigments used, to the newly configured Elite 670 automatic movement.
Unlike the limited-edition DEFY Revival A3642, the DEFY Revival A3691 is released as a permanent piece to the DEFY collection, available for the price of $6,900 USD via Zenith’s website and store, as well as its official retailers.
