With Watches & Wonders in Geneva just around the corner and following LVMH Watch Week in Miami, Zenith is unveiling new arrivals. With the launch so close to Geneva, I can’t help but wonder if this is some kind of tease for what’s to come, but only time will tell. So for now, let’s focus on what we have at hand: the latest addition to the DEFY collection, the DEFY Skyline Tourbillon.

A rather sophisticated addition, the Defy Skyline Tourbillon’s aesthetic is futuristic, housed within a sharply faceted 41mm geometric silhouette. The piece’s architectural form perfectly frames the watch’s focal point, the tourbillon, which sits like a cosmic vortex in the lower hemisphere of the dial. Visible through the opening, the mechanism is in the shape of an open four-pointed star, highlighted by mirror-polished bridges and reflecting Defy’s iconic design language. The tourbillon’s perpetual motion, making one revolution every 60 seconds, is a visual spectacle, further accentuated by the watch’s 100 meter water resistance.

Zenith has meticulously tailored the Defy Skyline’s distinctive metallic dial to complement the tourbillon’s functionality. Whether set against the blue background of the steel version or the darker shade of the black ceramic, the starry sky motif engraved on the dial appears to radiate from the tourbillon itself, heightening the illusion of depth and movement. . Illuminated by luminous markers and hands, the dial features color-coordinated indexes for excellent contrast and legibility.

At its heart beats the newly minted, self-winding, high-frequency manufacture caliber El Primero 3630, which boasts a power reserve of 60 hours. The movement’s intricate Côtes de Genève stripes radiate from the tourbillon, echoing the fine design of the dial and creating a harmonious visual continuity. The star-shaped rotor not only enhances this beauty, but also provides an unobstructed view of the movement’s modern construction.

In keeping with the versatility and contemporary spirit of the Defy collection, the Skyline Tourbillon is available with a choice of stainless steel or black ceramic bracelet. Each watch also comes with an additional blue or black rubber strap, which can be easily changed with a tool-free quick strap change mechanism.
