Among the finest women’s watches unveiled at LVMH Watch Week Dubai 2020, we couldn’t help but take notice of the new DEFY Midnight by none other than Zenith. This ‘New kind of Innovation’ in the brands DEFY collection adds a nice dreamy, poetic / cosmic touch, aimed at captivating the interests of the new generation of women.
This Zenith DEFY Midnight timepiece is perfectly good as an everyday watch, owing to its 36mm case embellished with just the right amount of brilliant-cut diamonds. Im also a big fan of case’s angular profile. On trend is the midnight blue dial with a vertical gradient effect for unprecedented depth and the integrated stainless steel bracelet, which will go with almost anything you choose to wear. The dial of the DEFY Midnight, according to Zenith,“portrays the night sky above the endless horizon, where the dark vastness of space gives way to the glimmer of starlight”. Evoking the Zenith starry sky, the brand’s faceted star emblem is the highest, brightest point in the depicted night sky. Completing the celestial landscape are stars of different sizes – some of which glow in the dark. White diamonds have also been applied to every hour marker, except at 3 o’clock where the date window is placed.
Women may like pretty things, but not without substance, which is why Zenith has equipped the DEFY Midnight with an automatic Elite in-house movement, that delivers a power reserve of approx. 50 hours. A star-shaped oscillating weight brings a galactic element to the case-back view.
Just so wearers are not restricted to one style, the integrated stainless steel bracelet can be swapped by means of a quick strap-change mechanism integrated directly onto the back of the straps, requiring no tools or special skills. The DEFY Midnight comes in a special box that includes 3 additional colored straps and an interchangeable folding clasp.
