Zenith Advances the DEFY Skyline with a Dynamic High-Frequency Tourbillon

Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...

Zenith introduces a new gem to its DEFY Skyline series, integrating an advanced automatic high-frequency tourbillon caliber into two editions: stainless steel and black ceramic. Renowned for aligning with high-end horology, the tourbillon represents a legacy of technical skill at Zenith. Conceived in the 18th century to combat gravitational impacts on accuracy, Zenith now adds a contemporary twist to this mechanism, showcasing its mastery in high-frequency precision in both movement and design. The DEFY Skyline Tourbillon operates at 5Hz (36,000 VpH), guaranteeing superior timekeeping and resilience against impacts.

Encased in a sharp 41mm geometric case with a choice of stainless steel or black ceramic bracelets, the DEFY Skyline Tourbillon combines bold architectural aesthetics with the lively dance of the tourbillon. At the dial’s heart, akin to a galaxy’s core, the tourbillon rotates every 60 seconds, visible through a dial aperture and encased in a polished star-shaped cage reflecting the DEFY line’s futuristic style. Water-resistant up to 10ATM (100 meters), this watch is crafted for endurance in any environment.

The dial, with its radiant sunray pattern and celestial engravings, has been designed to highlight the tourbillon, especially at the 6 o’clock position, from where engraved stars seem to burst forth. Luminous hands and markers enhance visibility, with rhodium plating on the blue dial and rose gold plating on the black.

Power comes from the new El Primero 3630 caliber, offering a 60-hour reserve. The movement’s design mirrors the dial’s expansiveness, with côtes de Genève stripes radiating from the tourbillon, complemented by a star-shaped rotor for an unobstructed view of the movement’s modern architecture.

The DEFY Skyline Tourbillon, like its counterparts, is available with a stainless steel or black ceramic bracelet and an additional blue or black rubber strap with an easy-to-switch folding clasp mechanism.

Available at Zenith’s physical and online boutiques and authorized retailers globally, the DEFY Skyline Tourbillon is a beacon of Zenith’s heritage and a testament to its motto, “TIME TO REACH YOUR STAR.”
