In a glitzy affair that unfolded during the inauguration of ZENITH‘s first boutique in Cyprus, the watchmaking Manufacture presented the DEFY Skyline Sapphire, a boutique-exclusive marvel that left horology enthusiasts spellbound.
This landmark event marked ZENITH’s expansion into Southern Europe, further enhancing its global presence while offering customers a personalized experience like never before.
The grand unveiling of the Cyprus boutique was a star-studded event attended by none other than the friend of the brand, DJ Carl Cox. His electrifying performance set the perfect tone for the evening, making it a memorable occasion for all those in attendance. Amidst the glitz and glamour, the DEFY Skyline Sapphire took center stage, stealing the show with its unmatched elegance and innovation.
The DEFY Skyline Sapphire pays homage to the iconic ZENITH DEFY wristwatch, which first graced the horological scene in 1969. A true embodiment of the brand’s timeless legacy, this watch seamlessly bridges the past and the present. Its bold architectural lines and unwavering robustness stand as a testament to the brand’s commitment to innovation and quality craftsmanship.
What sets the DEFY Skyline Sapphire apart is its stunning blue aesthetic, inspired by the starry night sky. Deep blue tones have become a signature element of many ZENITH Boutique Editions, but this time, ZENITH has taken it to another level. The watch boasts a steel dodecagonal bezel adorned with 45 baguette-cut blue sapphires, elevating the already mesmerizing metallic blue dial that features a captivating four-pointed star geometric pattern. The watch comes with an integrated steel bracelet, and for those who seek versatility, a blue patterned rubber strap is also included. What’s remarkable is the case’s ingenious quick strap-change mechanism, which requires no tools, making it a breeze to switch between the two.
Inside the 41mm DEFY Skyline Sapphire beats the heart of horological excellence – the El Primero 3620 automatic high-frequency calibre. This movement is a true testament to ZENITH’s mastery of the art of watchmaking. It features a 1/10th of a second indicator, driven directly from the 5Hz escapement, ensuring precision and accuracy that is second to none. With a power reserve of approximately 60 hours and a stop-second mechanism for precise time-setting, this watch is not just a marvel to behold but also a dependable companion for the modern watch enthusiast.
The DEFY Skyline Sapphire is an exclusive watch that can only be found in ZENITH’s physical and online boutiques worldwide. It embodies the spirit of the brand, blending tradition with innovation, and craftsmanship with artistry. For those who appreciate the finer things in life and seek a timepiece that is as unique as it is luxurious, the DEFY Skyline Sapphire is an impeccable choice.
