Unveiling the Cosmic Brilliance: Zenith Elevates the DEFY Skyline Tourbillon

Witness the Birth of a New Star as Zenith Integrates a Modern Twist into the DEFY Skyline Tourbillon Series.

In the ever-evolving universe of horology, Zenith introduces a celestial marvel that transcends traditional craftsmanship. The DEFY Skyline Tourbillon series takes center stage, boasting a new automatic high-frequency tourbillon calibre that propels it into the forefront of innovation. This timepiece, available in steel and black ceramic, signifies a cosmic leap in both design and technological sophistication.

At the heart of this stellar creation lies the high-frequency tourbillon, a horological marvel synonymous with the zenith of watchmaking excellence. Originally conceived to counteract gravitational forces affecting timekeeping precision, Zenith’s modern interpretation adds a contemporary flair to this age-old mechanism. The DEFY Skyline Tourbillon, operating at a remarkable 5Hz (36,000 VpH), ensures not only unparalleled precision but also shock resistance—a testament to Zenith’s commitment to superior craftsmanship.

Encased in a meticulously designed 41mm faceted case, available in stainless steel or black ceramic, the DEFY Skyline Tourbillon seamlessly marries architectural boldness with mechanical finesse. This fusion results in a timepiece that effortlessly complements daily wear in any setting. The matching bracelet further enhances the watch’s allure, creating a harmonious blend of form and function.

Reminiscent of a galactic nucleus, the central kinetic element of the DEFY Skyline Tourbillon is unveiled through a strategically placed aperture on the dial’s lower portion. The tourbillon cage, resembling an open four-pointed star, mirrors the futuristic lines found in other DEFY references. Its mesmerizing rotation, completing a full revolution every 60 seconds, becomes a captivating spectacle. With a water resistance of 10ATM (100 meters), this timepiece attests to its enduring performance in all conditions.

The signature sunray-patterned metallic dial, adorned with an engraved starry sky pattern, has been reimagined for the DEFY Skyline Tourbillon. Whether in the steel version’s blue or the ceramic version’s black, the engraved four-pointed stars radiate from the tourbillon at 6 o’clock, creating a celestial tableau. Luminescent markers and hands, in rhodium or rose gold plating, offer a striking contrast, further enhancing the dial’s visual appeal.

Powering the DEFY Skyline Tourbillon is the new El Primero 3630 automatic high-frequency manufacture calibre, boasting a commendable 60-hour power reserve. The movement’s contemporary architecture is revealed through the open star-shaped rotor and sunray-patterned côtes de Genève stripes on the bridges, emanating from the tourbillon.

Available with a stainless steel or black ceramic bracelet, the DEFY Skyline Tourbillon embraces versatility. A quick strap-change mechanism on the case back allows for easy transitions, offering an additional blue or black rubber strap with a folding clasp.

Embrace the cosmic brilliance of the DEFY Skyline Tourbillon, now available at Zenith physical and online boutiques, as well as authorized Zenith retailers globally. This high-frequency masterpiece promises not just to adorn your wrist but to redefine your perception of precision and design in the world of fine watches.
