Zenith DEFY 21 Carl Cox
Zenith appreciates the unique partnership and is proud to introduce a new friend of the brand – world-famous DJ and producer Carl Cox. A living legend of electronic music and the techno genre, Carl Cox took his art to a new level, and his unique sound was heard by the whole world. From underground rave parties of the eighties to large-scale performances at festivals, as well as his own venue at the Burning Man festival and his own innovative recording studio, Carl Cox lives up to the credo “It’s time to reach for the star.” Starting from scratch, thanks to his perseverance and undisputed talent, Carl became one of the world’s most influential and famous figures of electronic music.

The first Zenith high-end watch of 2020 bearing his name – DEFY 21 Carl Cox, – released in a special limited series of 200 copies, set a high pace. It is a futuristic version of the chronograph with a measurement accuracy of 1/100 seconds. It is easy to recognize by the carbon fiber bezel and the strap with the firmware that glows in the dark. A rotating disk at the 9-o’clock position, stylized as a vinyl record, which acts as a smooth second hand, is reminiscent of the fact that the mechanical heart of this impressive wristwatch beats in the rhythm of Carl Cox.
“I am happy to be able to share my love of music with the world. Each of us can feel the rhythm and dance. My task is to release this energy and unite everyone on the dance floor. Zenith does the same – by cultivating the art of watchmaking, the manufacturer shares its innovations with the world. In this sense, our collaboration on creating a timepiece that works with a high rhythm is absolutely logical,” says the legendary DJ.
Zenith DEFY 21 Land Rover Edition
When two collaborates – each a pioneer in their field – join forces, it can produce impressive and completely unexpected results. Simultaneously with the release of the new-generation Land Rover Defender, a reinterpreted version of the famous SUV that includes the largest number of modifications to date, the partnership between Zenith and the famous British automaker was continued in the form of the most original high-end watch of joint development to date – the DEFY 21 Land Rover Edition timekeeping device.

It is a high-strength, refined version of the 21st century El Primero chronograph with a high balance frequency, echoing the increased reliability and convenience of the new Land Rover Defender. In this limited edition of 250 copies, the chronograph wristwatch with a measurement accuracy of 1/100 seconds is presented in a completely redesigned version, with a strict minimalist appearance. The case made of titanium with sandblasting absorbs light falling at any angle, which allows emphasizing its edges better. Also, for the first time in the series, a reinterpreted, matching the case closed gray dial of the DEFY 21 model has a window with a linear power reserve indicator, which has a color accent for better readability of the readings.
“We wanted to mark the new stage of our partnership with Zenith with a high-end watch that would convey the essence of the new Land Rover Defender – a modern, durable, and highly sought-after SUV. In my opinion, this new model, which contains elements that echo the specifics of the new version of Defender – is the best watch that we released together with Zenith,” says Gerry McGovern, creative director of Land Rover.
