Zenith Defy Extreme E Copper X Prix: 20 watches for the Chilean desert

Posted by lifata on March 28th, 2024

As the official timekeeper and partner of the Extreme E off-road racing series, it is understandable for Zenith to launch another exceptionally angular and robust chronograph with the Zenith Defy Extreme E Copper X Prix in honor of its own great commitment. After all, the Extreme E racing series competes in the most inhospitable areas around the world.

Anyone who doubts the demanding challenges of this racing series, even for a timekeeper, just needs to look at the individual venues. The racing series started in February with a race in the Saudi Arabian Neom Desert. He was followed by two races in Sardinia in June and July.

At the end of September, the fourth off-road race for the purely electric rally series took place in the Atacama Desert of the Chilean Antofagasta region in the north of Chile. Interestingly, the technically challenging racing venues do not represent an obstacle for the racing teams, which consistently consist of one female and one male driver. A circumstance that should serve as a role model for other, purely male-dominated racing series.

In honor of the Atacama Race, as with the race in Sardinia, Zenith has now launched a small special edition based on the extremely robust and lightweight Zenith DEFY Extreme Carbon Chronograph. The name of the special model: Zenith Defy Extreme E Copper X Prix. Like the original model, this watch replicas uk also supports high-precision timekeeping in races, accurate to the 100th of a second.

When designing the Zenith Defy Extreme E Copper Accordingly, the carbon body as well as the titanium elements and the bracelet of the watch are in copper-like brown and gray tones. Due to the demanding conditions, on the one hand the 45 mm large, striking carbon case, on the other hand the colored crown and the chronograph pushers are made of extremely light but ultra-resistant carbon material. The contrast to this is the angular, 12-sided bezel and the side protection of the pushers made of gray micro-blasted titanium.

In order to do justice to the idea behind the Extreme E X Prix series, which is more sustainable thanks to e-mobility, Zenith replica not only uses new raw materials but also recycled and up-cycled materials for the 20 Extreme E Copper X Prix models.

Even if this is only a drop in the bucket in terms of quantity, it is at least a sign that the Extreme E series wants to stand out from the classic automobile racing series through a more sustainable approach - but without losing its appeal and appeal.

Like the original model of the Zenith Defy Extreme, the dial of the copper-colored Extreme E is designed with an openwork dial, which allows a view of the movement construction of the Zenith Defy chronograph. The sapphire crystal over the super-fast central seconds displaying 1/100th of a second or the totalizer scales gives a subtly brownish impression that perfectly matches the case.

Regardless of the rather unusual color design, watch lovers will pay more attention to the unusual construction of the Defy Extreme E Kupper X Prix with its power autonomy of up to 50 hours. Finally, on the one hand, the clock works with a control element that works at the classic 5 Hz or 36,000 semi-oscillations, which ensures that the advancing time is measured and displayed.

At the same time, the extremely fast orbital speed of the hundredth of a second requires the central second to be driven at a frequency of 50 Hz, or 360,000 half-oscillations. Both constructions can be admired through the sapphire crystal and the sapphire crystal back with its Copper X Prix logo. The screwed housing and glass base offer excellent water resistance of up to 200 meters.

The price for each of the super-fast, high-precision Zenith Defy Extreme E Copper Chronograph Copper X Prix is 26,500 euros. The replica watch uk comes with a rubber strap with folding clasp, which is partly made from recycled car tires. The watch also has two additional straps made of black rubber and black Velcro. Thanks to the quick-change system, these bracelets can be replaced in a very short time and the watch can therefore be adapted to the changing conditions of the harsh environment of the Extreme E racing locations.
