Official description

When two partners who are pioneers in their respective fields come together, the results can be unexpected and exciting. Coinciding with the release of the next-generation Land Rover Defender, a total redesign of the emblematic, all-terrain vehicle with its most significant evolution to date, Zenith and the famed British carmaker are reinforcing their partnership with their most original collaborative watch to date: the DEFY 21 Land Rover Edition. This edition is a rugged and stealthy reinterpretation of the 21st century El Primero high-frequency chronograph, embodying the resilient spirit of the new Land Rover Defender that combines the ultimate in ruggedness and comfort. A limited edition of 250 pieces, it represents a complete makeover of the 1/100th of a second chronograph with a raw and minimalistic look. Crafted in microblasted titanium, the case absorbs light from all angles to better accentuate its faceted surfaces. Paired with a matching closed grey dial, the redesigned display features for the first time in a DEFY 21 a linear power reserve window, with the slightest touches of color for legibility. Gerry McGovern, Land Rover Chief Creative Officer, said: “For the next chapter in our partnership with Zenith we wanted a timepiece that captured the essence of the new Land Rover Defender: modern, durable and highly desirable. With subtle details that capture the character of the new Defender, this for me is the best timepiece we have created with Zenith”.
