Zenith explores new sources of inspiration and flamboyant baroque imagery – skulls, pirates and the Virgen de Guadalupe – through a set of exclusive special-edition Defy Zero G timepieces destined for Latin America and presented at the 2018 Salón Internacional Alta Relojería (SIAR).
The highly unusual DEFY ZERO G VIRGEN DE GUADELUPE evokes a venerated Catholic image enshrined within the Minor Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe in Mexico City. Depicting a reported apparition of the Virgin Mary to an Aztec convert to Christianity, it holds a special place in the religious life of Mexico and represents a symbol of devotion that has come to embody national pride. While skulls have become a trendy fashion motif, Zenith offers a specifically Mexican take on this theme with the DEFY ZERO G SKULL – Dias de los Muertos, celebrating the Mexican Day of the Dead which is an extremely popular national holiday that includes festivals, parades and family gatherings. And speaking of skulls and crossbones, the DEFY ZERO G PIRATES offers watch lovers a chance to set sail on an imaginary maritime adventure filled with exotic islands, buried treasure and swashbuckling sailors.
Reference 18.9003.8812/76.M9003 has a rose gold case and bracelet with pirate-themed engraving.
