Introducing the Zenith Defy Skyline Skeleton!

Zenith is kicking off 2023 with a bang with the introduction of the Zenith Defy Skyline Skeleton, an airy new take on the critically-acclaimed 2022 Zenith Defy Skyline.

The 2023 Zenith Defy Skyline is an open-worked take on the 2022 Defy Skyline. The sharp, octagonal case has remained the same, but now both dial and movement are open-worked, with clean-cut lines inspired by modern architecture and cityscapes. The integration between the dial and movement is particularly seamless and natural; it's almost hard to tell where one ends and the other starts.  The resulting look is mesmerizing and full of depth. It's edgy and architectural, and the play of light is simply amazing.

The Zenith Defy Skyline Skeleton is powered by caliber El Primero 3620 SK. The difference between this and the original El Primero 3620 are not mere visual: the striking 1/10th of a second display is now at 6:00, and gone plus Zenith has dropped the date window for a more symmetrical look. For the time being, it is available in a blue or black finish. The Defy Skyline Skeleton is delivered with both a stainless steel bracelet as well as a rubber strap. Thanks to the quick-change mechanism, switching between them is a breeze.
