After the success of the DEFY 21 Felipe Pantone limited edition, Zenith sought the talent of this acclaimed optical artist to reinterpret its most complex chronograph to date, equipped with a double tourbillon mechanism to adjust the timing and 1/100 Second chronograph. Zenith’s futuristic DEFY series uses a transparent sapphire case for the first time. The outstanding movement and open dial adopts innovative rainbow gradient PVD surface treatment, and incorporates the moiré effect and other visual elements in Felipe Pantone’s work. A high degree of color.

The winning bidder of the unique DEFY 21 Double Tourbillon Only Watch 2021 will also receive Felipe Pantone’s original signed artwork and a private party with the artist himself. This enamel and UV paint called “Optichromie 135 Z” is applied to the aluminum painting in the artist’s signature style, created exclusively for Zenith.

Zenith: It’s time to reach your star
Zenith exists to inspire individuals to pursue their dreams and realize their dreams-desperately. Since its establishment in 1865, Zenith has become the first modern watch manufacturer. Its watches are accompanied by extraordinary people who dream big and strive to realize the impossible-from Louis Blériot’s Historic flight across the English Channel to Felix Baumgartner’s record stratospheric free fall jump. Zenith also celebrated their achievements and created the DREAMHERS platform to allow women to share their experiences and inspire others to realize their dreams, thereby highlighting visionary and pioneering women in the past and present.

Zenith exclusively uses its internally developed and manufactured movements in all its watches. Since the introduction of the world’s first automatic chronograph movement El Primero in 1969, Zenith has mastered complex functions with higher precision, and can be accurate to 1/10 second in the latest Chronomaster series, and the DEFY series 1/100 second in the middle. Since 1865, Zenith has been shaping the future of Swiss watchmaking, accompanying those who dare to challenge themselves and break down barriers. It’s time to reach your star.
