In the past three years, ZENITH has worked with Land Rover. In 2017, the two sides collaborated to launch the Chronomaster El Primero Range Rover Velar model, paying tribute to the Range Rover. The new car should be matches with the best watch, the next generation Range Rover Evoque and ZENITH’s DEFY Classic series of the latest watch jointly launched: a chic sports watch-Zenith Defy Classic Range Rover Special Watch 95.9001.670/77.R791, highlighting the iconic design.
Designed to blend urban life and country vacations, the new Range Rover Aurora is a constructive evolution of its unmistakable appearance on the basis of its enduring luxury. Its redesigned design focuses on simplicity, and the most compact Range Rover is the embodiment of modern and time-honored design, placing Aurora models at the top of the market segment.
Land Rover’s chief designer, Mr. Gerry McGovern, stated: “A major element of the new Land Rover Range Rover Aurora is expected to be available. The new Zenith Defy Classic Range Rover represents a milestone in collaborative watch design, creating the ideal time tool, at the same time, it is also a tribute to the partnership between Zenith and Land Rover.”
The new Zenith Defy Classic Skeleton Range Rover Edition is the newest member of the related watch collection and is known for its unique design. It is the performance of the modern and graphic evolution of the series. Like the Land Rover Range Rover Aurora, its beautifully proportioned 41 mm case gives it an absolute neutral appeal.
The DEFY Classic Range Rover is limited to 200 pieces, developed in close collaboration with the design and technical engineering teams, combining its own streamlined look and some of the classic elements captured from the car. These elements include, in particular, the key colours of British-made vehicles, such as the turquoise blue seconds hand and balance wheel, which is inspired by the steering wheel and seat features of the Aurora.
This exquisite timepiece is inspired by the sculptural design of the Aurora wheel, while the quilted pattern of the premium sports utility car is decorated with a “diamond” pattern and a rubber strap on the watch. For the first time, ZENITH re-improved its Defy Classic collection, powered by the new Elite skeleton movement, based on a powerful inspirational design that exudes a unique charm.
ZENITH CEO Julien Tornare said: “If Zenith is a car, it will definitely become a Land Rover Range Rover! Both are considered coordinates in their respective fields. And both have the same values and some key features, including glamour, superb technology and excellent performance. At the same time, they are based on tradition and are committed to innovation. Defy and Land Rover Range Rover are both ideal luxury brands and the cornerstones of their respective industries, creating products that instantly resonate emotionally. What’s more, both of them draw inspiration from the past, firmly looking forward to the future.
