Zenıth Reveals DEFY Extreme E Desert X Prıx

Zenith is celebrating the second season of Extreme E with the first in a series of limited editions based around its dual escapement DEFY Extreme Carbon 1/100th of a second chronograph.

The Swiss watch brand sponsors the all-electric rally championship – which launches into its second season in NEOM, Saudi Arabia later this month – and will launch a limited edition DEFY Extreme Carbon watch incorporating recycled elements from the series, for each of the season’s five races.

The first watch, the DEFY Extreme E “Desert X Prix”, features a rugged 45mm carbon fibre and microblasted titanium case, while the strap features elements made from recycled Continental CrossContact tires that were raced during the first season.

Watch brand Zenith is applying the concept of upcycling to its DEFY Midnight collection, drawing on excess stock from the fashion houses of its parent group LVMH.
