Zenith’s Defy Extreme watch has always with associated with ruggedness in typification to its luxurious sports watch status. However, the watchmaker’s newly unveiled iteration appears to play on a more juxtaposing appeal by outfitting the Defy Extreme in an allover mirror finish.
Described by its makers as a ”monolithic object that reflects all light and colors” all the while sporting no colors on its own, the new Defy Extreme is designed as an ultramodern camouflage timepiece that blends in with its surroundings in an unexpected yet intriguing way. An embodiment of being both eye-catching and stealthy, the brilliant mirror-polished appearance extends from bracelet, and case, to the multi-layered dial.
Partially visible through the open caseback is Zenith’s emblematic El Primero 9004 movement, known for its 1/100th of a second chronograph, which now also boasts a mirror finish. In line with all Defy Extreme’s functionality, the new watch is also able to withstand up to 20 ATM of water resistance.
The Defy Extreme Mirror retails for $26,100 USD and is available via Zenith’s online and physical boutiques.
