As the summer heat intensifies, ZENITH, the renowned Swiss luxury watchmaker, has unveiled three exclusive editions of the DEFY Skyline timepieces to help you stay cool.

Featuring stunning Ice Blue dials, the DEFY Skyline Boutique Editions watches are available in diameters of 41mm and 36mm. Furthermore, ZENITH has launched a comprehensive service in its online boutique, allowing customers to personalize their watches with various compatible straps. This exciting development comes just in time to enhance the vibrant colours of the summer season.

The DEFY Skyline Boutique Editions captivate with their bright and cool icy blue tones, reminiscent of the blue sky and crystal-clear water. ZENITH presents this striking new and exclusive colour for the first time in the original DEFY Skyline stainless steel case in 41mm and 36mm diameters. The 36mm version is available in two variations, with and without diamonds on the bezel. These exclusive editions exude freshness and style, making them the perfect addition to combat the summer heat.

The DEFY Skyline seamlessly merges the past and present of the ZENITH DEFY collection. Its angular steel case with a twelve-sided bezel draws inspiration from the original DEFY wristwatches introduced in 1969. The DEFY Skyline Boutique Editions feature a stunning icy blue hue with an engraved four-pointed star pattern on the sunray-patterned metal dial base. The dark blue shades of previous ZENITH Boutique editions give way to the cool metallic icy blue shade, exuding contemporary allure. Even the date dots are colour-matched to the dial, showcasing meticulous attention to detail.

The 41mm and 36mm DEFY Skyline Ice Blue Boutique Editions house ZENITH's exceptional automatic movements. The 41mm model is powered by the automatic high-frequency El Primero 3620 calibre, equipped with a 1/10th of a second display directly driven from the 5 Hz opening. This movement has a power reserve of approximately 60 hours and includes a stop-seconds mechanism for precise time setting. The smaller 36mm version utilizes the automatic Elite 670 manufacture movement, offering a power reserve of 50 hours.

The DEFY Skyline Boutique Edition comes with a stainless-steel bracelet with a satin-brushed finish, bevelled and polished edges that seamlessly follow the angular contours of the case. Additionally, an Ice Blue rubber strap adorned with a starry sky pattern is included, accompanied by a folding steel buckle. Switching between the bracelet and rubber strap is easy, thanks to the ingenious quick-change strap mechanism. This mechanism features buttons on the back, eliminating the need for any tools during the strap-changing process.

The DEFY Skyline Ice Blue Boutique Edition in 41mm is exclusively available in the brand's online boutique. On the other hand, the two 36mm versions can be purchased at ZENITH boutiques, ensuring wider availability for enthusiasts and collectors.

The Defy Skyline 36mm is priced at $8,500, the Defy Skyline 36mm with diamonds costs $12,000, while the Defy Skyline 41mm can be yours for $9,000.
