Cuervo y Sobrinos Historiador Gran Premio de Cuba “1957” Limited Edition

With this limited edition watch series, Cuervo y Sobrinos takes us back to 1957, a time when Cuba hosted the action-packed Cuban Grand Prix.

Limited to 162 pieces, the Cuervo y Sobrinos Historiador Gran Premio de Cuba “1957” chronograph takes inspiration from the historical race, but crafted with modern day specifications.

Cuervo y Sobrinos Historiador Gran Premio de Cuba “1957” Limited Edition

The inaugural Cuban Grand Prix, the Gran Premio de Cuba was held in 1957. In this race, the famous Argentinean driver Juan Manuel Fangio secured victory in his Maserati 300S. The following year, on the eve of the race, antigovernmental revolutionaries kidnapped Fangio, however, the race still went ahead and Stirling Moss was victorious in his Ferrari 335S.

Unfortunately, the 1959 race was cancelled due to political instability, however, it returned for one last time in 1960, when the British driver, Stirling Moss, was once again, triumphant, albeit this time in a Maserati Tipo 61.

Cuervo y Sobrinos honours the Gran Premio de Cuba with a new, limited-edition chronograph bearing the name and date of the legendary race first edition.

Cuervo y Sobrinos Historiador Gran Premio de Cuba “1957” Limited Edition

The vibrant red dial evokes motor racing spirit. The cream hours and minute hands are leaf-shaped, luminescent and plump, while their colour bestows the dial with a bygone charm.

Cuervo y Sobrinos Historiador Gran Premio de Cuba “1957” Limited Edition

The central chronograph seconds hand and counter hands are baton shaped. Two chronograph registers, 30 minutes and 12-hours, once again encompass cream hues, while a small seconds display, positioned at 9 o’clock, is presented in a vivid shade of red.

The bold, cream Arabic numerals offer better clarity. The hour markers are treated with Super-LumiNova, enhancing readability in dim light.

Cuervo y Sobrinos Historiador Gran Premio de Cuba “1957” Limited Edition

The red tones of the central dial area are framed with a cream circlet that serves as a telemeter scale. Beyond the telemeter scale is a black ring, hugging the interior of the case which plays host to a tachymeter. This feature allows the wearer to determine the speed of a vehicle over a known distance.

Cuervo y Sobrinos Historiador Gran Premio de Cuba “1957” Limited Edition

The Cuervo y Sobrinos Historiador Gran Premio de Cuba has a 42mm stainless steel case. The dial sits beneath a double curved sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating. Two piston-style chronograph pushers are positioned on the right flank of the case and the lugs are ergonomically-shaped, optimising wearer comfort.

Cuervo y Sobrinos Historiador Gran Premio de Cuba “1957” Limited Edition

The watch is supplied on a black ‘racing style’ matte leather strap. It features numerous perforations, a detail inspired by the racing gloves of yesteryear. Red stitching and an open-worked CyS-branded clasp are two additional refinements.

Cuervo y Sobrinos Historiador Gran Premio de Cuba “1957” Limited Edition

The case back is adorned with a Gran Premio 1957 de Cuba insignia and the model is limited to just 162 pieces. This latter number was inspired by the 162 mile race distance of the Gran Premio 1957 de Cuba.

Cuervo y Sobrinos Historiador Gran Premio de Cuba “1957” Limited Edition

OMEGA Speedmaster Super Racing

Swiss luxury watch brand OMEGA debuts its latest innovation, the Spirate™ System, with the new Speedmaster Super Racing automatic chronograph.

OMEGA Speedmaster Super Racing

Developed in-house, the Spirate™ System is comprised of an innovative new patent-pending spiral that allows for ultra-fine rate adjustments.

Omega Spirate™ System

Each spiral is made from a silicon wafer, thanks to an internal manufacturing process called DRIE (Deep Reactive Ion Etching). With this mechanism, an impressive precision of 0/+2 seconds a day can be achieved.

It has a totally new Si14 balance spring which allows the watchmaker to act on the stiffness of the hairspring’s attachment point through an eccentric adjustment mechanism located on the balance bridge.

OMEGA Speedmaster Super Racing

Announced this year, the OMEGA Speedmaster Super Racing is the first timepiece to be endowed with the fine-tune Spirate™ System. This 44.25 mm diameter stainless steel watch offers a clear view of the new mechanism through the sapphire crystal caseback.

OMEGA Speedmaster Super Racing case-back

The black dial is encircled with a racing style minute-track and a black ceramic bezel ring with the famous tachymeter scale in new yellow “grand feu” enamel. This bold yellow shade, featured on the OMEGA Seamaster Aqua Terra >15’000 GAUSS of 2013, is also used on the gradient chronograph hand and striped small seconds hand at 9 o’clock.

OMEGA Speedmaster Super Racing dial

The watch’s 60 minute/12 hour recorder, directly opposite at 3 o’clock, also serves as a second time zone. The honeycomb pattern of the dial references a concept timepiece on display at OMEGA Museum which survived extreme magnetic fields of 160,000 GAUSS.

Omega CoAxial 9920 Calibre
Omega CoAxial 9920 Calibre

Powering this revolutionary wristwatch is the self-winding Co-Axial Master Chronometer 9920 calibre, certified by the Swiss Federal Institute of Metrology (METAS). Proof of this certification is provided by a distinctive red METAS card, which in this case includes confirmation of the 0/+2 seconds a day precision made possible by the Spirate™ System.

Omega CoAxial 9920 Calibre

The first movement in the world to feature the patent-pending OMEGA Spirate™ System, the CoAxial 9920 calibre incorporates a self-winding chronograph with column wheel mechanism. Visible through the exhibition case-back, it boasts a rhodium plated finish with Geneva waves in arabesque. The power reserve is approximately 60 hours.

Omega CoAxial 9920 Calibre

The diamond-polished and bevelled black arrowhead indexes are filled with a new and exclusive Super-LumiNova with yellow glow. This colour code extends to the Speedmaster and Super Racing wording on the dial.

OMEGA Speedmaster Super Racing

At 6 o’clock there’s a stylish and regular reminder of the >15’000 GAUSS 10 year anniversary: a “10” in Speedmaster logo font, which appears once a month in the watch’s date window.

OMEGA Speedmaster Super Racing

The new Omega Speedmaster Super Racing comes fitted with a stainless steel bracelet featuring a fold-over butterfly clasp. The brand is also offering an additional NATO strap in recycled nylon with black and yellow stripes, inspired by the distinctive colour code of the Seamaster Aqua Terra >15’000 GAUSS watch.

OMEGA Speedmaster Super Racing Box

Each Speedmaster Super Racing watch will be provided with a honeycomb pattern Speedmaster watch box in black with yellow stitching. The special presentation box includes the recycled nylon NATO strap and a strap changing tool.

The approximate retail price of the OMEGA Speedmaster Super Racing watch is $11,000.

Meticulously cut and polished by hand, each stone is different and exhibits slightly different colours and fibrous structures, making each of the 50 examples of the DEFY Extreme Glacier essentially a unique piece.

Zenith DEFY Extreme Glacier Limited Edition

The open dial of the DEFY Extreme Glacier reveals the inner workings of the innovative and singular El Primero 1/100th of a second automatic high-frequency chronograph calibre and its two regulating organs beating at 50Hz for the chronograph and 5Hz for the timekeeping.

Zenith DEFY Extreme Glacier Limited Edition watch with white rubber strap

The chronograph counters are made in transparent sapphire crystal that’s given a frosted finish, recalling a layer of ice that allows light to pass through.

Zenith DEFY Extreme Glacier Limited Edition watch with black Velcro strap

This timepiece is provided with additional black Velcro and white rubber straps, which can be easily swapped with the titanium bracelet using the quick strap-change mechanism on the back of the case.

Tag Heuer Carrera Chronograph 60th Anniversary Edition

During LVMH Watch Week (January 2023) in Singapore, Swiss luxury watch brand TAG Heuer announced the Carrera Chronograph 60th Anniversary limited edition.

The iconic Carrera watch was launched in 1963. Known for its classic elegant design with an ultra-legible dial and superior performance, it has been preferred by many motorsports legends and movie stars.

In 2023, Tag Heuer is celebrating the 60th anniversary of this legendary chronograph. Boasting a classic panda dial, the TAG Heuer Carrera Chronograph 60th Anniversary is the first limited edition series to mark the 60th Anniversary of the Carrera.

Limited to 600 pieces, this commemorative watch (Tag Heuer reference CBK221H.FC8317) takes inspiration from the Heuer Carrera reference 2447 SN of the late 1960s.

Tag Heuer Carrera Chronograph 60th Anniversary Edition

The first-generation Carrera model had a hand-wound Valjoux chronograph movement and either a silvered or black dial in a variety of configurations, sometimes with the addition of a scale around the dial periphery. At the end of the 1960s, a second series was added to the line-up with either a silvered dial and black subdials, or the other way around, known respectively as ‘panda’ and ‘reverse panda’.

Heuer Carrera Reference 2447 SN
Heuer Carrera Reference 2447 SN

The Heuer Carrera 2447 SN had a silvered dial with black subdials. This easy to read high-contrast dial color theme is better known as panda.

Building on the success of the earliest Carreras, the 2447 SN further improved readability at a glance with clever design touches. They included stripes down the hour markers to give them extra clarity, hour and minute hands with stripes down the centre for the same effect, double stops at 12 so it was clear when the chronograph was zeroed, and white hands and markings on the black counters to make them even more visible.

Tag Heuer Carrera Chronograph 60th Anniversary Edition

The colourways are lifted directly from vintage to new, including the black stripes down the central hands and hour markers, the double stops at 12, and of course the black counters with high-contrast white markings.

Tag Heuer Carrera Chronograph 60th Anniversary Edition

On a silver sunray-brushed dial, the vintage Heuer logo is placed below the name Carrera. The counter at 6 carries over the word ‘Swiss’, marking the watch’s Swiss Made status. The 60-minute and 12-hour counters are reversed, as well as the subtraction of the T from the dial which designated radioactive tritium on the original watch. This has been replaced with contemporary Super-LumiNova on the new model.

Tag Heuer Carrera Chronograph 60th Anniversary Edition

The 39mm diameter polished steel case with a raised profile ‘glass box’ in sapphire crystal, the vintage pushers, beige lume and slimline tension ring around the dial’s outer edge, gives the watch much of its retro look.

Tag Heuer Carrera Chronograph 60th Anniversary Edition

The sapphire crystal case back reveals Heuer 02, TAG Heuer’s 80-hour in-house automatic chronograph calibre. Also visible are the movement’s Geneva Stripes decoration, its column wheel and a special Carrera 60th Anniversary rotor.

Tag Heuer Carrera Chronograph 60th Anniversary Edition

The case back is engraved with the serial number, XXX/600, and with note of its 100-metre water resistance. The watch comes with a perforated black calfskin leather racing strap with pin buckle.

TAG Heuer Monza Flyback Chronometer

During the LVMH Watch Week 2023 in Singapore, TAG Heuer unveiled a carbon version of the iconic Monza watch.

A modern homage to the deep-seated bond between TAG Heuer and motorsports competitions, the new Monza Flyback Chronometer comes with a 42-mm case, made of ultra-lightweight and resistant carbon.

TAG Heuer Monza Flyback Chronometer

Its striking black dial features a two-register layout with a translucent fumé blue sapphire crystal chronograph counter at 3 and the permanent second at 6 o’clock. The unique skeletonized dial reveals the mechanical movement underneath.

At 9 o’clock, the date window is in blue luminescent, a first for TAG Heuer, and the blue lacquered indexes and black and white lacquered hours and minutes hands are applied with Super-LumiNova® for optimal legibility in low light.

The TAG Heuer Monza Flyback Chronometer is powered by the in-house Calibre Heuer 02 Flyback, a COSC certified chronograph movement.

TAG Heuer Monza Flyback Chronometer watch movement

The notable advantage of a flyback function is the ability to reset the chronograph without stopping it, using the black DLC steel pushbuttons.

TAG Heuer Monza Flyback Chronometer with carbon case

The watch features a tachymeter scale which indicates average speed for a 1-kilometer or 1-mile distance, measured using the indicator on the black flange, as well as a pulsometer, which helps determine one’s heart rate per minute.

TAG Heuer Monza Flyback Chronometer

Red details, on the dial such as the sub-counter hands and the framing of the date window evoke exhilarating speed and racing hearts. They contrast elegantly against the black dial and case and the bright blue indexes, seconds hand and stitching on the custom textile strap.

TAG Heuer Monza Flyback Chronometer

The original Heuer Monza was introduced in 1976 to celebrate Niki Lauda’s historic 1975 victory in the F1 World Championship. It was one of the first black-coated watches of the era; the first reference 150.501 was powered by the Calibre 15 with its signature running second at 10 o’clock, and it was later complimented with a version powered by the Calibre 12 thanks to its resounding success.

The TAG Heuer Monza was modernly revived in the early 2000’s and reintroduced occasionally since then.

Available from January 2023, the Monza Flyback Chronometer is presented in a special packaging and will be sold exclusively in TAG Heuer boutiques, on the brand’s e-commerce websites and in selected retail stores.

Grail Watch 2: Franck Muller 30th Anniversary ‘Tribute’ Chronographs

In collaboration with Grail Watch, Franck Muller revives three of its iconic chronographs. The first two are bi-compax chronographs powered by new old-stock Lemania movements. The third one is a double sided rattrapante.

Franck Muller Tribute Choronographs

Offering the most ambitious limited edition timepieces, Grail Watch was established by Wei Koh, founder of The Rake and Revolution Magazines. This new venture unveiled its first chapter earlier this year named “Dream Collaborations,” with Grail Watch 1, a collaboration between Ressence and Alain Silberstein. Chapter 2 of Grail Watch is the “Revival of Past Icons.”

Franck Muller, which is celebrating the 30th anniversary this year, has recently recreated the 90s chronograph series in partnership with Grail Watch.

Franck Muller 30th Anniversary ‘Tribute’ Chronographs Bi-compax Chronograph

These Franck Muller Chronographs were origially introduced in the ’90s in two configurations. The first was a two counter version with a silver dial featuring applied Breguet ‘12’ and ‘6’ and applied dot markers. This bi-compax watch was 36mm in diameter. And then there was a black dial version with three counters with an applied Breguet ‘12’ and applied dot markers as well, and this watch was 37mm in diameter.

Franck Muller 30th Anniversary ‘Tribute’ Chronographs Tri-Compax Chronograph

Commissioned by an Italian retailer in the ’90s, these Franck Muller Chronographs were made in small series of either 40 or 50 units each time. In some versions, the number of the watch was actually printed on the dial.

Franck Muller 30th Anniversary ‘Tribute’ Chronographs Bi-compax Chronograph

Rated as antimagnetic, these Franck Muller chronographs were made with steel cases, and had solid case-backs. Their timeless design evokes the legendary Patek chronograph references 130 and 1463 of the ’40s and ’50s. The cases were smooth and rounded with long elegant lugs and concave bezels. Pushers were pump-style while the crowns were large and flat.

Franck Muller 30th Anniversary ‘Tribute’ Chronographs Bi-compax Chronograph

The movement used in these bi-compax and tri-compax watches was Lemania 1874. This calibre is a shuttle cam-operated, laterally coupled chronograph movement introduced to the Speedmaster back in 1968. It was the successor to the column wheel-activated 2310 designed by Albert Piguet in the 1940s, and because its cam was much easier to set up, it was considered more reliable.

Franck Muller 30th Anniversary ‘Tribute’ Chronographs Bi-compax Chronograph

While the older watches were 36mm and 37mm in diameter, the new watches announced this year feature 39mm cases. At the same time, they stay extremely faithful to the case of the original watches with the same style, finish and the type of flat, oversized vintage-themed crown and large capped pushers.

Franck Muller 30th Anniversary ‘Tribute’ Chronographs Tri-Compax Chronograph

The new watches can be distinguished from the 90s models by their fluted pusher caps, based on the style used by François Borgel. The dial design is also accurate to that of the original down to the texture, precise typography and colors used.

To equip the new models, the company has used new old stock Lemania 1874 movements from the 1990s. All of them were beautifully finished with Côtes de Genève and bearing the Franck Muller signature on their bridges.

Franck Muller 30th Anniversary ‘Tribute’ Chronographs Bi-compax Chronograph

The bi-compax and tri-compax models come with two caseback choices: Solid steel and transparent. The solid case-back ensures to retain the antimagnetic nature of the original watch. It allows people to engrave their initials or a message should they wish, and. Meanwhile, a sapphire crystal back allows the viewer to admire the historical movement beating inside.

These watches are available with simple calf straps, a vintage tan colored one for the silver dial version and a black one for the black dial variant.

Franck Muller 30th Anniversary ‘Tribute’ Chronographs Tri-Compax Chronograph

In addition to these Lemania 1874 powered chronographs, Grail Watch presents a double sided chronograph launched to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Franck Muller manufacture.

Franck Muller 30th Anniversary ‘Tribute’ Chronographs Double Sided Rattrapante Chronograph

This 39mm diameter manual-winding chronograph in stainless steel comes with two display sides. The front dial indicates hours & minutes at 6 o’clock, seconds at 9 o’clock, and chronograph with rattrapante (seconds counter in the center, minutes counter at 3 o’clock). The rear side offers Pulsometer, Tachymeter and Telemeter functions.

Franck Muller 30th Anniversary ‘Tribute’ Chronographs Double Sided Rattrapante Chronograph

The Lemania bi-compax with silver dial and the Lemania tri-compax with black dial in 39mm steel case will each be made in 50 examples, following the original allocation numbers from the ’90s. The double-faced rattrapante with a steel 39mm case will be made in just 30 pieces.

Franck Muller Tribute Choronographs Box set

Watches 1 to 10 of each timepiece will be sold together in box sets of three watches, while watches numbered 11 to 30 of the Double Sided Chronograph and 11 to 50 of the two Lemania-based Franck Muller Chronographs will be sold as individual pieces.

Constructed like no other chronograph movement, it is equipped with two independent tourbillons completing rotations in 60 seconds for the time-keeping tourbillon and 5 seconds for the chronograph’s tourbillon, making it among the fastest tourbillons ever made, as well as the only 1/100th of a second chronograph, beating at the phenomenal rate of 360’000 VpH.

Zenith Defy Extreme Double Tourbillon

Perfectly suitable for housing such an intricate and complex movement, the Zenith DEFY Extreme Double Tourbillon’s angular and robust case measures 45mm wide and is available in two executions.

The first is crafted entirely in titanium with a mix of satin-brushed, polished and matte surfaces including the bracelet, while the second is done in carbon fiber with sandblasted matte rose gold twelve-sided bezel and pusher protectors on a black textured rubber strap.

Zenith Defy Extreme Double Tourbillon

Its open dial, with applied chronograph counters and tinted transparent sapphire elements, allows for an unobstructed view of the groundbreaking movement and its two tourbillon mechanisms with star-shaped cages.

The movement’s open and satin-brushed bridges are coated in a layer of black PVD. Then, the edges of those bridges are highlighted in rose gold color, revealing the geometric forms of the bridges in a true departure from traditional watchmaking decoration techniques.

Wempe Glashütte I/SA Iron Walker Chronograph XL

Unveiled in January 2022, the Iron Walker Chronograph XL by Wempe Glashütte I/SA is available in black and Nordic blue versions.

The Glashütte based independent family-owned company has been manufacturing precise timepieces in its own watchmakers’ ateliers since 2006. Each one of them has been certified as a chronometer according to the stringent German ISO 3159 standard at the observatory in Glashütte.

In 2020, the company’s two wristwatch lines — Wempe Chronometerwerke, which has its own manufacture calibers, and Wempe Zeitmeister, which features mechanical basic models — were joined by a third: the Wempe Iron Walker, a strikingly sporty stainless-steel watch with an integrated metal wristband. The brand has now launched the new Iron Walker Chronograph XL.

The first automatic chronograph in the Iron Walker line is a powerful combination of functionality, chronometric precision, and sporty features. Wempe Glashütte I/SA is now launching the Iron Walker Chronograph XL in a large format and two color versions as a daily-use alternative for first movers: with a dial in matte black or Nordic blue.

Wempe Glashütte Iron Walker Chronograph XL

The bezels and the chronograph buttons are coated with natural rubber in harmonizing colors. In addition to the stainless-steel wristbands, exceptionally durable and supple rubber wristbands are also being offered in the Iron Walker line for the first time.

The stainless-steel case with its striking 44-millimeter diameter was designed for style-conscious people who decide for themselves. It creates space for more distinct figures — the best precondition for effortless readability of the chronograph functions.

In addition, a sapphire crystal with an anti-reflective coating on both sides and a Super-LumiNova® coating on the hour and minute hands, as well as the steel hour markers, provide such clearly legible contrasts that the timer can be used in all lighting conditions. An additional function is performed by the rubber-coated stainless-steel bezel, which acts as a shock absorber to lessen impacts.

The totalizers are edged with stainless steel and stand out to provide better readability, with the twelve-hour counter situated at six o’clock and the thirty-minute counter at twelve o’clock. To ensure that the stop-seconds can be read precisely when the stopwatch feature is used, it is centrally mounted and points to the tachymeter scale.

Wempe Glashütte Iron Walker Chronograph XL with black dial and steel bracelet

The small seconds subdial is placed at nine o’clock and the date is displayed at three o’clock. This clear arrangement of elements on the dial ensures an optimal overview and gives the watch a harmonious overall appearance.

The chronograph is controlled with two pushbuttons located directly next to the side protectors of the crown. The crown is a screw-in version, as is the case back, in order to guarantee water-resistance to 10 bar (100 meters).

Wempe Glashütte Iron Walker Chronograph XL case-back

The watch is powered by a proven Swiss self-winding chronograph movement (Caliber SW500) with a power reserve of 48 hours nonstop and a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour (4 Hz).

To ensure that Wempe standards are met, it is mounted in the company’s own ateliers in Glashütte, Saxony, and optimized with an eccentric fine adjustment. This work is performed with such precision that it passes the stringent German chronometric testing according to the ISO 3159 standard, with a maximum average rate variation of only two seconds per day when mounted in the case.

Wempe Glashütte I/SA Zeitmeister Aviator Antique Limited Editions

Wempe Glashütte presents Antique editions of its iconic Zeitmeister Aviator Watches.

The Wempe Glashütte I/SA Zeitmeister collection has been offering aviator watches since 2010. They take inspiration from the history of the Wempe Company as a specialist of ship chronometers and extremely accurate timepieces.

During its expansion in the 1930s and the subsequent war years, the German Luftwaffe had an increasing need for observation watches for its pilots. Wempe was one of the companies commissioned to produce aviator watches with precise specifications.

These specifications included the typography of the luminous numerals on the black dial, the line markings and the 55-millimetre diameter of the case. The center seconds hand had to have a counterweight, and it could be stopped so that it could be precisely adjusted according to the time signal. Another important feature was an easy-to-grip crown that could be adjusted even if the pilot was wearing gloves.

Thanks to their dark dial, functional typography, and triangular index at 12 o’clock, the models of today’s Wempe Zeitmeister line are immediately recognizable as aviator watches.

All of them are powered by Swiss self-winding movements with a fine adjustment mechanism specially designed by Wempe. The screwed-down steel case back bears a high-relief engraving of the observatory in Glashütte where the watches have passed their chronometric testing.

The rugged grey-black steel case emphasizes the functional nature of this aviator watch. The PVD coating is reminiscent of the casing of historical onboard instruments.

Wempe Glashütte ISA Zeitmeister Aviator Watch Chronograph XL Antique

Both go well with the classic typography on the dark dial and the typical triangular index at 12 o’clock. The 45-millimeter diameter watch is worn with a robust handmade canvas strap.

The Swiss self-winding movement that powers the Chronograph XL is supplemented at Wempe with in-house designed stop-seconds function. Each of these movements then undergo chronometer quality test at the observatory in Glashütte. The large diameter dial ensures exceptional readability of the time and date, as well as the stopped hours, minutes and seconds.

Wempe Zeitmeister Aviator Watch Large Date Antique

With a rugged PVD coated steel case, this pilot watch evokes historical cockpit technology. This 42mm watch with an austere geometry offers two additional functions whose design is also reminiscent of onboard instruments: a large date display and a comfortably legible second time zone.

Wempe Zeitmeister Aviator Watch Large Date Antique

A handmade canvas strap completes the aviator look. In preparation for the chronometer testing at the observatory in Glashütte, the Swiss self-winding movement, like the movements of all other Zeitmeister watches, is equipped with a stop-seconds function designed in-house by Wempe.

After four races on three continents across wildly different terrains, the grand finale of Extreme E electric rally racing showdown of 2022 is taking place in the seaside city of Punta del Este in Uruguay.

To mark this event, ZENITH is presenting the DEFY Extreme E “Energy X Prix”, a limited edition of 20 pieces that combines carbon fibre and titanium with striking purple accents that evoke streaks of lightning in a stormy sky. True to the purpose of ExtremeE and ZENITH’s HORIZ-ON initiative, it incorporates recycled and upcycled elements from the championship in the strap as well as the packaging.

Rugged in form and function, the DEFY Extreme E “Energy X Prix” is the world’s lightest and most robust 1/100th of a second chronograph, designed to brave the harshest environments in some of the world’s most remote destinations.

Tried and tested on the electric rally’s off-road courses, it is crafted in lightweight, durable and visually striking carbon fibre. The DEFY Extreme E “Energy X Prix”’s angular geometry exuding is further emphasised by the contrasting microblasted titanium pusher protectors and twelve-sided bezel.

Zenith Defy Extreme E – Energy X Prix Edition

The open multi-layered dial consists of tinted sapphire crystal elements, embellished with purple accents that evoke the lightning-lit skies of Uruguay. Partially visible through the dial as well as the sapphire case back is the fastest automatic high-frequency chronograph calibre in production, offering 1/100th of a second time measurements, with two escapements independently beating at 5Hz (36’000 VpH) for the timekeeping part and 50Hz (360’000 VpH) for the chronograph function.

The movement is also visible through the sapphire display back, emblazoned with the Energy X Prix logo.

Zenith Defy Extreme E – Energy X Prix Edition

Sustainability and environmental awareness are the forefront of ZENITH and Extreme E’s partnership. The DEFY Extreme E “Energy X Prix” is delivered with a rubber strap infused with materials of upcycled Continental CrossContact tires that were used in the first season’s races.

Matching the Energy X Prix purple accents on the dial, the Velcro strap features a black rubber central element surrounded by a purple cordura-effect rubber inlay. The DEFY Extreme E “Energy X Prix” is delivered with two additional straps in black rubber and black Velcro, which can be easily swapped without any tools by using the case back’s ingenious and intuitive quick strap-change mechanism.
