After the DEFY Classic Skeleton Night Surfer limited edition of 100 pieces released in 2021, which captured the magnificence of the darkening night sky and the ocean in a microblasted titanium case paired with a liquid blue gradient dial, Zenith and Time+Time present the DEFY Skyline Skeleton Night Surfer El Primero, a limited edition of 200 pieces.
The legend is back. Bigger. Bluer. And with a higher beat-rate.
The new Zenith x Time+Tide DEFY Skyline Skeleton receives the full Night Surfer treatment with that matte micro-blasted titanium, case and bracelet treatment, making it the first ever Skyline in titanium.
The liquid blue gradient dial is inspired by the waves turning an abyss blue as night takes over dusk. The new Night Surfer El Primero is a huge movement upgrade on the OG, with a high-beat El Primero calibre derived from the legendary chronograph.
This high-tech movement sports a silicon escapement and ticks at 36,000vph for up to 60 hours.
The rapid beat-rate is shown off with the six o’clock sub-dial, as the hand traces its perimeter in just 10 seconds.
There’s no shortage of lume either, as we’ve equipped the blue gradient, star-shaped bridges of the dial with a generous application of SuperLuminova for an impressive after-dark light show.
