Zenith DEFY Skyline Boutique Edition

Swiss luxury watch brand ZENITH presents the first boutique-exclusive edition of the DEFY Skyline collection.

The new 41mm DEFY Skyline steel watch with a dodecagonal bezel takes inspiration from the earliest DEFY wristwatches from 1969.

The DEFY Skyline Boutique Edition comes with a radiant anthracite dial, engraved with a rose gold motif and set with rose gold hands and hour markers.

The dial design evokes a constellation of golden stars twinkling against the night sky. To achieve this dazzling effect, the four-pointed stars, recalling the ZENITH emblem found in past references, are first engraved on the dial, and then plated with rose gold.

Powered by the El Primero 3620 automatic high-frequency calibre, the DEFY Skyline features a unique running 1/10th of a second indicator that’s driven directly from the 5Hz escapement.

Built with a similar architecture as the El Primero 3600 1/10th of a second chronograph, this automatic manufacture movement visible through the sapphire display back and is also endowed with a stop-second mechanism for precise time-setting. The efficient automatic winding mechanism with bi-directional rotor with a futuristic star motif delivers a power reserve of approximately 60 hours.

The Zenith DEFY Skyline Boutique Edition watch is delivered on a steel bracelet with a satin-brushed surface with chamfered and polished edges, seamlessly following the contours of the angular case.

A black rubber strap with a starry sky pattern is also provided with a steel folding clasp and can be easily swapped without any tools using the DEFY case’s ingenious quick strap-change mechanism consisting of secure buttons on the back.

The DEFY Skyline Boutique Edition will be available exclusively from ZENITH physical and online boutiques around the world.
