Zenith Unveils Unique Box Set Of Four Defy Extreme E Limited Editions
These watches mark the start of Extreme E season three in Neom Saudi Arabia
Ahead of the debut of the 2023 Extreme E championship, which Zenith is proudly continuing to support as its Official Timekeeper and Founding Partner, the brand is offering a unique opportunity to acquire all four editions of the Defy Extreme E pieces in a single boxed set – all bearing the special limited edition number of “X/20”.
Made To Last
Crafted in lightweight yet rugged carbon fibre and titanium and featuring the high-frequency 1/100th of a second El Primero 21 movement, each watch bears the official colours of a championship race. The oolours include yellow for the Desert X Prix, orange for Island X Prix, purple for Energy X Prix and coppery-brown for the Copper X Prix.
All editions of the watches bring sustainability and environmental awareness to the forefront. The Defy limited editions are made with a rubber strap infused with materials of upcycled Continental CrossContact tires that were used in the first season’s races.
The four watches also come packaged in a waterproof and crushproof case inspired by the extreme conditions of the rally. They also use various upcycled elements from the first season’s races such as the lid coating being made from E-grip recycled tires, while the plate covering is made from parts of an Extreme E racing tarpaulin.
Going The Extra Mile
Buyers will also receive rare collectibles and gain access to unique experiences, aside from just the box and its contents including a helmet from season 2 signed by Extreme E teams and drivers. There is also an invitation to one race from the upcoming 2023 season, complete with a VIP pass and accommodation aboard the St Helena ship for one night along with the opportunity to join Extreme E founder Alejandro Agag and Zenith CEO Julien Tornare on the sidelines of the race.
Zenith CEO, Julien Tornare, concluded, “After the incredible adventures we got to experience around the world last year, we’re all so excited to see what Extreme E has in store for us in its third championship. By returning to NEOM, we also get to witness the progress made on the various Legacy Programme actions we began with Extreme E last year, which aim to mitigate the effects of climate change and desertification in this region by rewilding and regreening the desert.”
