For the past three years, Zenith has been worked in collaboration with Land Rover. In 2017 the creative partnership launched the Chronomaster El Primero Range Rover Velar, a model celebrating the iconic Range Rover name. And since a new vehicle deserves a new timepiece, Zenith has paired the next-generation Range Rover Evoque with the latest watch from the Defy Classic collection.
Like the corresponding car with its enduring luxury appeal is equipped with a purposeful evolution of its recognisable silhouette, the new Defy Classic Range Rover watch also features a characteristic design. Zenith offers a transformation of the modern and graphic interpretation of this line and endowed the well-proportioned 41mm-case with a resolutely unisex appeal.
Zenith offers an evolution of the modern and graphic interpretation of this line. Like the Range Rover Evoque, its beautifully proportioned 41mm case endows it with a resolutely unisex appeal. The new Zenith Defy Classic is strikingly slender, fitted with certain unmistakable elements drawn from its automotive inspiration. These notably include the seconds hand and oscillating weight, attired in the colour Arctic Petrol.
The case is made from brushed titanium and guarantees a water resistance of 10 bar.
The openworked dial of this watch is inspired by the sculptural design of the wheel design of the Evoque. Indizes and hands are equipped with Super-LumiNova and at 6 o’clock Zenith has placed a small date window which is blending in really nice. The dial is protected by a domed sapphire crystal with anti-reflective treatment on both sides.
Zenith’s first reinterpretation if ist Defy Classic collection is powered by a new Elite skeletonized movement. The automatic calibre is working at a frequency of 28,800 VpH or 4 Hz and provides a power-reserve of at least 48 hours. The movements can not only be seen through the skeletonized dial but also through the transparent sapphire crystal case back.
The rubber strap is picking up the quilted-patterned upholstery of the SUV, paying tribute to the Range Rover Evoque as well.
Die Zenith Defy Classic Range Rover ist eine Limited Edition, die nur 200 Modellen umfasst.
