Carl Cox x ZENITH | The DEFY Extreme limited edition watch
ZENITH and the legendary DJ Carl Cox have unveiled their second collaborative masterpiece: the DEFY Extreme. This exclusive collection of just 100 timepieces serves as a striking testament to the electrifying world of DJing.
ZENITH and electronic music pioneer Carl Cox have once again joined forces, unveiling their second collaboration: the DEFY Extreme. A limited edition collection of just 100 timepieces, this remarkable creation pays homage to the world of DJing.
Carl Cox, the iconic DJ, producer, and a close friend of ZENITH, is celebrated worldwide for his groundbreaking contributions to electronic music. Together with the renowned watch brand, he set out to craft a timepiece that mirrors the essence of authenticity and staying true to their identity. Drawing inspiration from the very heart of a DJ’s toolkit, the DEFY Extreme boasts design elements inspired by Carl’s beloved turntable.
A striking feature of this timepiece is the trio of black chronograph counters, ingeniously resembling miniature vinyl records. These counters serve not only as functional components but also as visual reminders of the musical roots that birthed this collaboration. The minute track, embellished with precisely aligned dots, pays tribute to the hypnotic strobe effect often found on the side of a turntable, capturing the essence of rhythmic motion and musical innovation.
