The third season of EXTREME E has kicked off this weekend in NEOM (located on the north-western coast of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia), and to celebrate the occasion Zenith – the Official Timekeeper and Founding Partner of the 2023 Extreme E championship – revealed a one-of-a-kind box set that includes all four DEFY Extreme E Season 2 pieces numbered 0/20. It is a rare opportunity to acquire all four editions of the DEFY Extreme E pieces in a single boxed set. Crafted in lightweight yet rugged carbon fibre and titanium and featuring the high-frequency 1/100th of a second El Primero 21 movement, each of the four watches bears the official colors of a championship race: Yellow for Desert X Prix, orange for Island X Prix, purple for Energy X Prix and coppery-brown for Copper X Prix.
The DEFY Extreme E limited editions features a rubber strap infused with materials of upcycled Continental CrossContact tires that were used in the first season’s races. These four watches come packaged in a suitably sturdy waterproof and crushproof watch case inspired by the extreme conditions of the championship, incorporating various upcycled elements from the side-lines of the first season’s races. The case’s lid coating is made from E-grip recycled tires, while the plate covering is made from parts of an Extreme E racing tarpaulin.
In addition to the box set, the buyer are offered rare collectibles as well as access to unique experiences, including a helmet from season 2 signed by Extreme E teams and drivers. An invitation to one race from the upcoming Extreme E 2023 season was also given as part of the set, complete with a VIP pass and accommodation aboard the St Helena ship for one night. The buyer had a chance to spend time with Extreme E founder Alejandro Agag and ZENITH CEO Julien Tornare on the sidelines of the race.
With a new format featuring back-to-back championship races in each location, Extreme E is also welcoming new teams to the competition – including ZENITH friend of the brand Carl Cox’s own team. Committed to the cause of Extreme E and fascinated by the thrill of the off-road rallies, the internationally acclaimed DJ decided to establish an Extreme E division within Carl Cox Motorsport, which is already active in other fields like a motorcycle and drag racing.
