Swiss watchmaker Zenith has taken the adage ‘the more, the merrier, very seriously and released a $128,000 box set filled with eight different-colored chronographs. Watch enthusiasts who couldn’t get enough of the colorful timepiece launched in 2020 now have eight new reasons to love the luxury watchmaker even more. The limited-edition box, a part of the Defy 21 series, contains the charming chronograph in black, violet, blue, pink, orange, khaki, turquoise, and green.
The wristwatches sport a 44 mm sandblasted titanium case and gray chronograph registers, beneath which vibrant metallic colors enhance the movement. The bridges and oscillating rotor complement the eight Ultra Color hues and the Cordura-effect rubber strap. Powered by the El Primero 9004 automatic movement, certified by Geneva-based TimeLab, the timepiece boasts a frequency of 50 Hz and a minimum power reserve of 50 hours. Zenith Defy Lab was once touted as the world’s most accurate mechanical watch, and now it is also the funkiest.
The Ultra Box set sells for $128,000 in only a limited number of 8. The Defy 21 Ultra Colour box set features sequentially numbered watches, 1 through 8, rather than having the same number for all eight watches in a box.
