Today is the start of the first edition of the LVMH Watch Week, in which the top brands of this luxury conglomerate present their newest watches in Dubai. For Zenith, the perfect opportunity to launch a completely new ladies watch; the Defy Midnight.
With this new creation does Zenith find the perfect balance between elegance and sportiveness. The watch features a 36mm stainless steel case with either a plain bezel or one set with diamonds. These precious gemstones can also be found as hour markers on the stunning dial, which is a real eye-catcher. Zenith gave the watches a vertical gradient effect with a glossy finish. As they are available in either grey or deep blue, it is like you are staring into the night sky. This is all the more interesting because this also puts the Zenith logo in its natural place. The Zenith star is accompanied by other stars, of which some will glow in the night, to complete the image of the celestial sky. There is also a third version available, in which Zenith applied the gradient effect to mother-of-pearl. This creates the effect as if you are looking at the clouds in the sky.
An automatic Elite-caliber powers all the new Zenith Defy Midnight watches. These movements are made in-house by Zenith and have a power reserve of 50 hours. The caliber can be admired through a glass caseback, where you will also see the star-shaped oscillating weight. The Defy Midnight is available on a stainless steel bracelet, but also on a variety of different colored straps.
While the revamped Elite Moonphase is technically a unisex watch, we believe that many women will be drawn to them. The classic dial with a guilloche motif features not only a small running seconds hand at nine o’clock but also a moon phase indicator at six. It gives this watch a timeless elegance. The Elite Moonphase is not only available in two different metals; stainless steel and rose gold, but also in two sizes. The 36mm version will probably be mainly favored by women, while the 40.5mm large Elite Moonphase will have no problem tempting men as well.
