Introduced in 2022, the Defy Skyline seamlessly blends classic design elements from the iconic 1960s model with contemporary mechanics, embodying the spirit of modern luxury sports watches. This new iteration captivates with its verdigris gradient dial, a nod to Parisian architectural elegance and the patina of aged copper that adorns the city. This unique color theme enhances the watch’s appeal, making the Zenith Defy Skyline Edition Paris not just a timepiece, but a celebration of Parisian heritage and style.The Zenith Defy Skyline Edition Paris maintains the series’ distinctive 41mm diameter and 12mm thickness, embodying a modern interpretation of the Defy aesthetic.

The contours of this watch have a very modern and compact feel to them, as it all flows down towards its stout lugs. All topped by a flat sapphire crystal that gives this watch more of a block form. Water-resistance can reach up to 100 meters (330 feet).The dial of the Zenith Defy Skyline Edition Paris is a true standout, featuring a verdigris gradient that echoes the aging copper found throughout Paris. This unique color choice not only ties the watch to its Parisian inspiration but also adds depth and character through its gradient effect. The dial is further embellished with an embossed starry sky pattern, which has been a signature of the Defy series.This model retains the familiar layout of the Defy Skyline collection. The time display is centrally located, featuring rhodium-plated, faceted hands and applied markers, all filled with Super-LumiNova SLN C1 for enhanced legibility in low-light conditions. The configuration remains practical and legible, with a 1/10th of a second sub-dial positioned at 9 o’clock and a date window at 3 o’clock, integrating essential timekeeping functions in a balanced aesthetic.The integration of these elements ensures that the dial is not only visually appealing but also maintains a high level of functionality and readability, making the Zenith Defy Skyline Edition Paris a perfect blend of artistic design and practical utility.
