Zenith Defy Classic Range Rover Special Edition
A chic and sporty timepiece honouring the Range Rover Evoque.
For the past three years, Zenith has been associated with Land Rover. In 2017 the creative partnership launched the Chronomaster El Primero Range Rover Velar. A new vehicle deserved a new timepiece, and the next-generation Range Rover Evoque is paired with the latest Zenith watch from the Defy Classic collection, the Defy Classic Range Rover Special Edition.
The new Range Rover Evoque is designed to blend city living with country escapism, building on the original’s enduring luxury appeal with a purposeful and precise evolution of its instantly recognisable silhouette. A reductive design approach focused on simplicity, the most compact Range Rover is a vision of modernity and timeless design placing Evoque back at the top of the segment.

The new Defy Classic Range Rover Special Edition is distinguished by its characterful design. It offers an evolution of the modern and graphic interpretation of this line. Like the Range Rover Evoque, its beautifully proportioned 41mm case in brushes titanium endows it with a resolutely unisex appeal.
Specially co-developed by design and technical engineering teams working in close harmony, this 200-piece limited edition watch is a combination of its own streamlined looks and certain unmistakable elements drawn from its automotive inspiration. These notably include colour themes such as the seconds hand and oscillating weight attired in Arctic Petrol (turquoise blue) inspired by the accents on Evoques steering wheel and seats.
The openworked dial is inspired by the sculptural design of the wheel of the Evoque, while the quilted-patterned upholstery of the premium SUV is picked up in the ‘diamond’ motif gracing the black rubber strap of the watch. The timepiece is powered by the new Elite 670 SK skeletonised movement, with a 48-hour power reserve.

"If Zenith was a car it would definitely be a Range Rover!", said Julien Tornare, CEO Zenith. "Both are recognised as icons in their fields. Both share the same values as well as a number of key assets, including charisma, technical refinement and remarkable performance. Both have innovation in their very DNA. The Defy and the Range Rover are both desirable, luxurious trademarks and pioneering cornerstones of their industries – objects with which there is an immediate emotional connection. Both are inspired by the past, while looking firmly to the future."
Ever since it was founded, Zenith has been cultivating the ability to open up new horizons by assisting with some of the most remarkable human achievements.Find out more >
