A Defy for an all-new era of exploration

Since the earliest days of the Defy collection, Zenith has sought to make its mark with sturdy and singularly designed timekeepers that would accompany their wearers throughout whatever life journey they chose to embark on. The all-new Defy Skyline continues those traditions with a bold, 41mm ceramic octagonal case equipped with a faceted bezel framing a sunburst-patterned dial revisiting the emblematic Zenith four-pointed star.

Much harder than traditional metals and alloys like stainless steel, ceramic boasts many properties that make it a compelling choice for all-situations watches. Its extreme hardness, which requires diamond-tipped tools to cut the sharp lines of the Defy Skyline and decorate it with a mix of satin-brushed and polished surfaces, makes ceramic highly resistant to scratches and visible wear. Unlike blackened metal elements which are simply plated, the ceramic itself is black and will never wear off. Even the integrated bracelet that follows the contours of the case is crafted in black ceramic. A black patterned rubber strap with a blackened steel folding clasp is also included, and swapping between it and the ceramic bracelet is effortless using the quick strap-change mechanism integrated directly in the case back.

Exclusive to the Skyline is its El Primero 3620 manufacture movement, characterized by its 1/10th small seconds indicator at 9:00 which uniquely completes one complete revolution every ten seconds, thanks to the calibre's uniquely high frequency of 5Hz (36’000 VpH). It is further endowed by a highly efficient bi-directional automatic winding mechanism that delivers a power reserve of 60 hours.
