The All-New Zenith Defy Skyline and Defy Skyline Skeleton in Stunning Black Ceramic

Experience the perfect fusion of durability and style with Zenith's latest masterpieces.

The Zenith Defy Skyline and Defy Skyline Skeleton have undergone a striking transformation, with the entire collection now clad in black ceramic. The sleek, modernistic form of these timepieces takes on an even more daring and visually stunning look in black, while also providing superior resilience. Launched in 2022 as the successor to Zenith’s rugged and bold Defy line from 1969, the Defy Skyline collection now boasts two new references crafted entirely in black ceramic, including the bracelet.

Ceramic is an ideal choice for all-situations watches like the Defy Skyline and Defy Skyline Skeleton due to its extreme hardness, resistance to scratches and visible wear, and the fact that it won’t lose its black color over time. The Defy Skyline Ceramic features a black galvanic dial with a geometric pattern of Zenith’s four-pointed stars, while the Defy Skyline Skeleton Ceramic boasts a blackened open dial that reveals the skeleton movement with black bridges and main plate.
