Zenith Releases Defy Classic Range Rover Special Edition

2 min read

Watchmaker Zenith partners with Land Rover another time to release a limited edition of its Classy DEFY line to commemorate the launch of the all-new Range Rover Evoque. The new watch is unmistakably Zenith yet the dial is reminiscent of the signature rims of Evoque.

The watch is the product of the design and technical engineering teams who worked closely to produce this 200-piece limited edition of DEFY Classic. It features distinct Zenith design elements that are complemented with design elements inspired the Evoque’s own design language.

Gerry McGovern, Land Rover Chief Design Officer, said, “A key component of the new Range Rover Evoque is Desirability. The new Zenith DEFY Classic Range Rover watch represents a step change in collaborative watch design, the result being a highly desirable timepiece and a fitting tribute to the Zenith and Land Rover collaboration.”

 

The most notable design element is the open-worked dial that was inspired by the design of the Evoque, as well as the quilted upholstery of the Range Rover’s interior, which was carried over to the timepiece in the form a diamond motif on the rubber strap.

This is not the first time the watchmaker and the automaker partner together on a project. Zenith has been associated with Land Rover for past three years and previously launched the Chronomaster El Primero Range Rover Velar watch in 2017.
