Must-Have for Advanced Players: New release of Zenith DEFY SKYLINE by Zenith Chronomaster!

[Market News]
In recent years, the Swiss watch brand Zenith has presented multiple timepieces of the DEFY series with its unique style of “avant-garde and modern”. As one of the main development lines of the brand, this series has launched representative masterpieces with high-frequency performance and innovative design, featuring a wide range of styles and choices. Most of the DEFY series watches are priced above 50,000 yuan, making them the preferred watches for many advanced players. Among the many models in the DEFY series, the DEFY SKYLINE watch has attracted a lot of attention in the international watch market with its rugged and distinctive high appearance value. Not long ago, the brand introduced a new model for this representative work – the DEFY SKYLINE SAPPHIRE sapphire sky watch boutique store special edition, which has a few available in the Zenith Beijing SKP boutique store. The actual watches are even more outstanding in appearance than the previous models. Let’s take a look at the details of the watch:

The DEFY SKYLINE watch is positioned as a “multi-function watch”. Why is that? Because it has the most popular luxury formal sports watch style, with a clean and neat integrated design and excellent waterproof performance of 100 meters, allowing the wearer to wear it with a tuxedo or a wetsuit, versatile and adaptable to various occasions.

Although there are many types of luxury formal sports watches available now, Zenith’s DEFY SKYLINE watch has a unique modern and tough design style. From the new watch in the picture, the DEFY SKYLINE SAPPHIRE sapphire sky watch boutique store special edition adopts a straight line design in the contour shape, with sharp corners and more distinct and neat lines, which is in line with modern aesthetics.

Diameter is 41mm

Looking at the polished details from the side, after the satin-finished and polished treatment on the side of the case, it has high resistance to scratches and abrasion. The polished design at the corners also gives the case a bright luster. The integrated bracelet is also treated with a combination of polished and brushed techniques. The large-area brushed design is not easily scratched, while the polished surface in small areas adds a touch of delicacy to the watch, making the overall light and shadow control very precise, with rich details and a strong sense of three-dimensionality.

The fine treatment is also done at the crown on the other side, with a pentagram-shaped brand logo at the top. The overall design also uses a combination of polished and satin-finished techniques. The anti-slip design around the watch is conducive to grip and facilitates precise adjustment by the wearer.

Let’s take a look at the front of the watch, which is the design focus of this new model. The new watch uses a deep and elegant blue color scheme to inject extraordinary power into the watch. Blue is a very special color for Zenith, as the brand logo of Zenith is a shining star. In the blue dial, the “five-pointed star” logo seems to hang in the dark blue night sky, pointing to the future rising star of the watchmaking industry, with profound meaning.

To enhance the blue atmosphere of the watch, the watchmaker has equipped this watch with dazzling blue gemstones. The outer side of the twelve-sided stainless steel bezel is polished, while the inner circle is set with 45 step-cut blue sapphires, which is splendid and eye-catching. This is not the first time Zenith has used colored gemstones on the bezel. Before this, the brand has presented many colored gemstone watches.

Unlike the design of women’s watches, the use of colored gemstones does not bring a “gentle” color to the watch. On the contrary, under the avant-garde and trendy design style of Zenith, colored gemstones present a unique and cool charm. Each watch is particularly eye-catching, and the colorful “rainbow circle” design is even more remarkable, with a very good market performance and high demand.

Under the sapphire bezel, the watchmaker has equipped it with a dial of the same color scheme, presenting a metal texture. Upon closer observation of the dial details, the dial is embellished with a geometric pattern with a “four-pointed star”, which is inspired by the Zenith “double Z” brand logo used on the back of antique DEFY series watches in the brand’s history, inheriting the classics. The “four-pointed star” covers the entire dial, and the dial is also decorated with a sunray pattern, which can emit a dazzling and exquisite brilliance under different lighting conditions, shining with a metallic luster.

At the 12 o’clock position on the dial, there is the Zenith brand logo, polished to shine like a star in the night sky. At the 3 o’clock position on the dial, there is a practical date window, with a background in the same color scheme, making the dial more complete. The rhodium-plated facet hour markers and hands are coated with Superluminova SLNC1 super luminous material, ensuring the watch’s night vision function.

In terms of time reading function, the central dot on the dial only has hour and minute hands, while the small seconds hand is moved to the 9 o’clock position on the dial. Upon careful observation, the small seconds sub-dial with a record groove design has a scale of 10, and it has a 1/10-second hand rotating every 10 seconds. Unlike the conventional small seconds sub-dial that completes one rotation in 60 seconds, this unique algorithm has a high recognition. This is thanks to the El Primero 3620 movement inside the watch, which has a high vibration frequency of 5Hz (36,000 times/hour). The 1/10-second hand is directly driven by the escapement mechanism, using a silicon escapement wheel and fork, equipped with a stop-seconds device. Looking at the bottom, you can see that the movement is decorated with a star-shaped pattern oscillating weight, with a power reserve of about 60 hours when fully wound. The watch is water-resistant to a depth of 100 meters and performs excellently.

As a multi-function watch, in terms of the watch strap, in addition to the stainless steel bracelet, Zenith also provides a blue rubber strap decorated with a starry pattern, matched with a folding clasp, giving a stronger sporty atmosphere. The wearer can replace it with different styles through the new strap quick-change system, simply by operating the adjustment button on the back of the watch.

In summary, in the luxury formal sports watch market, the launch of the DEFY SKYLINE watch has filled the market gap in various aspects. The distinctive and sharp appearance and the use of the unique algorithm of the 1/10-second hand make this watch particularly outstanding. The new DEFY SKYLINE Sapphire Sapphire Sky Watch Boutique Store Special Edition shown in the picture brings a trendy and cool avant-garde style, and the sapphire bezel and deep blue dial make the overall temperament more extraordinary.
