Zenith is set to celebrate the festive season with their latest range of High Jewellery editions of two of its most emblematic pieces from the DEFY collection – the DEFY El Primero 21 and DEFY Classic.
A statement timepiece, the jewel embellished DEFY El Primero 21 High Jewellery features a 44mm rose gold case set with brilliant cut white diamonds and the bezel adorned with baguette cut diamonds that “makes every passing moment much more precious”. Despite the diamond-studded avatar, the timepiece is a certified chronometer with the El Primero 9004 automatic movement working within. The DEFY El Primero 21 High Jewellery is strapped to a black rubber strap with brown coating.
Another variation of the collection is the DEFY El Primero 21 High Jewellery Rainbow that features a 44mm rose gold case with snow-set white diamonds. What stands out is the vibrant “rainbow” treatment of 44 baguette shaped sapphires meticulously placed on the bezel of the watch. Adding to the festive mood is the openworked dial with the hour markers set with sapphires and different coloured counters.
For those looking for a more subtle version of these Zenith High Jewellery timepieces, the Defy Classic High Jewellery edition are the way to go. It features two editions – the DEFY Classic High Jewellery and the DEFY Classic High Jewellery Rainbow. While both the watches feature a modern 41mm titanium case set with diamonds on the case, openworked dial and rhodium plated hour markers, the former houses baguette-cut diamonds on the bezel with signature Zenith blue accents sprinkled throughout the watch and the latter adds a pop of colour with a range of sapphires set in a rainbow effect on the bezel.
Powered by the Elite 670 SK automatic movement, the DEFY Classic High Jewellery and the DEFY Classic High Jewellery Rainbow are available in a white rubber strap with blue alligator leather coating and white rubber strap with white “stain effect”, respectively.
