Like RJ Watches before it, Zenith clearly believes Mykonos to be one of the most coveted of summer destinations.
To celebrate the upbeat spirit of Mykonos, Zenith has created a special rendition of its Defy Classic for its retailer in Greece, GOFAS, in a Limited Edition of only 25 pieces.
Measuring 41mm, the watch is made of blue ceramic. Tough and highly resistant to scratches, the deep blue color is embedded in the material and is not just a superficial layer. With its mix of polished satin-brushed and micro-blasted matte surfaces, the case amplifies the futuristic lines of the Defy Classic.
Recalling the colors of the Greek flag, the open dial has a mix of blue, white and silvery tones that create a sense of harmonic visual depth against a contemporary architectural backdrop.
For the Mykonos Edition, the central star element of the open dial is fashioned in the same blue tone as the case, while the central second’s hand with a star-shaped counterweight is painted in white for this special series. The raised flange ring is also white, with blue markers and applied rhodium indexes filled with blue SuperLumiNova, just like the faceted hands.
Visible through the dial as well as the case back, the Defy Classic Mykonos Edition’s movement is the Elite caliber, featuring a silicon escape-wheel and lever offering precision at a frequency of 28,800 VpH (4 Hz). When fully wound, the automatic Elite movement provides a minimum power reserve of 50 hours.
The sapphire display on the back of the case is emblazoned with the silhouette of Mykonos’ iconic white windmills that have become a symbol of the unique island.
The Defy Classic Mykonos Edition comes on a special strap developed just for this series, featuring a white rubber backing with a blue central element featuring a pattern inspired by the pavements of Mykonos’ cobbled streets.
A second strap is also delivered with the watch, in textured white rubber. The double folding Titanium buckle features a touch of blue with a blue ceramic element on the buckle ahead.
The Defy Classic Mykonos edition, limited to 25 pieces, is available exclusively at GOFAS.
