Official description

Following the phenomenal reception of the DEFY Skyline collection last year, ZENITH is pleased to introduce its first boutique-exclusive edition of the groundbreaking model, offering an alluring combination of contrasting tones.

Housed in a 41mm angular steel case with a dodecagonal bezel that recalls the earliest DEFY wristwatches from 1969, the DEFY Skyline Boutique Edition stands out with its radiant anthracite dial, engraved with a rose gold motif and set with rose gold hands and hour markers. The visual animation is one of a constellation of golden starts twinkling against the night sky. To achieve this eye-catching effect the four-pointed stars, recalling the ZENITH emblem found in past references, are first engraved on the dial, 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 DEFY Skyline Boutique Edition 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 theDEFYcase’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.
