ZENITH DEFY CLASSIC FUSALP

Swiss luxury watch manufacture Zenith and French luxury ski and ready-to-wear brand Fusalp have combined their historical know-how and innovative prowess to release a unique capsule collection.

This capsule, which coincides also with the 70th year anniversary of the Fusalp brand features two bespoke watches and a contemporary sport-chic wardrobe.

ZENITH DEFY CLASSIC FUSALP

Versatile in its styling and resolutely futuristic in its lines, the DEFY Classic Skeleton was chosen for this collaboration. Stylish and enduring, the DEFY Classic is ideally proportioned as a unisex sport-chic watch that stands out with its symmetric open dial.

Limited to 300 pieces in a black ceramic case and 100 pieces in white ceramic, the DEFY Classic Skeleton Fusalp features a new open dial.

Zenith Defy Classic Fusalp White Ceramic watch

Zenith worked with Fusalp to develop this new open dial that combines the two universes of the brands, by retaining the signature five-pointed star of the Manufacture while incorporating a snowflake into its design.

The result is a dial full of depth and contrast, highlighted by a rose gold coloured lower open layer and surrounded by a ring in the French tricolore tones of blue, red and white, a nod to the tailor’s French origin and a recurring design element in its sought-after creations.

Zenith Defy Classic Fusalp Black Ceramic watch

The rubber strap has also been designed to incorporate elements inspired by the clothing capsule collection designed by Fusalp exclusively for this collaboration. As durable as it is stylish, the rubber features a fabric-like structure, featuring a raised motif consisting of concentric rectangles providing a bold graphical element in line with the open dial.

The DEFY Classic Skeleton Fusalp special editions are driven by the Elite automatic high-frequency movement with a power reserve of 50 hours.

For this winter-ready collaboration, Fusalp tailored a capsule collection of ski wear for men and women, specifically designed around Zenith and the DEFY Classic Skeleton Fusalp watches.

The Fusalp x Zenith collection will be available at Zenith physical and online boutiques around the world, as well as selected Fusalp boutiques.
