Zenith Defy Skyline Tourbillon

The Defy collection from Zenith encompasses seven distinct series, including the newly introduced Defy Skyline. Originating with the robust 'Defi' pocket watches of 1902, the name was revived in 1969 to mark the most resilient model among the inaugural El Primero offerings. In crafting the Defy Skyline series, Zenith took inspiration from the 1969 version, adopting certain stylistic elements while moderating them to suit the modern luxury sports watch market, avoiding an overly retro feel. The latest additions to the Defy Skyline series come equipped with a precision tourbillon movement, housed within a durable and sporty 41mm case. The 42 mm case is available in either stainless-steel or black ceramic, both with a vertically brushed surface and sides, and polished bevels finish. This design ensures that the watch's intricate features can be appreciated on a daily basis and in a wide range of settings.Attached to the case is a multi-faceted dodecagonal bezel, featuring 12 sides (in contrast to the initial Defy models with 14 sides), maintaining the vertical brushed finish of the case while incorporating polished accents for a striking contrast. It comes equipped with a knurled screw-down crown emblazoned by the Zenith’s iconic star emblem. The watch's contours exude a modern and sleek aesthetic, with a compact design that seamlessly flows towards its sturdy 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).Time is exhibited on either a black or blue radial star-shaped pattern dial with rhodium-plated (steel version) or rose-gold plated (ceramic version) indices, followed by a flange with a white printed minute ring on both options. Rather than employing the grid of etched four-pointed stars found on the dials of other Defy Skyline watches, Zenith's creative team has introduced a more vibrant, radial design for the dial. This new pattern also features four-pointed stars, but they emanate from the 56-part tourbillon cage located at the 6 o'clock position, gradually increasing in size towards the edge of the dial.At first glance, the central hands appear to be in the traditional Zenith style, yet they've been crafted with a distinctive, chiseled base resembling a handle. Both these hands and the hour markers are infused with a green luminescent material, improving readability.
