We’re BACK with the streetstyle-centric #kixntix, and what better way to celebrate some of the sharpest watches to come out of Watches & Wonders than with some fresh Nikes?
This time I’m enamoured by the cutting-edge engineering of the new Zenith DEFY 21 Spectrum collection. Powered by the tour de force 9004 movement – the twin-escapement version of the famous El Primero – be prepared for the brilliance of a dizzying spin of the 1/100th second chronograph hand. Set within in an angular steel case of 44mm, this ain’t no shy boy.
And that’s on its own. With the Spectrum collection, only being made in 10 examples of each reference, Zenith gives us a knockout punch of a full pavè diamond-set case and a bezel gem set with baguette-cut sapphires.
The Zenith DeFY 21 as a tough sports chronograph will steal your attention with its open-worked dial alone, while here we get the volume turned up to bursting point. It’s a delightful lesson in the beauty of contrasts and intricate micro-engineering with a jeweller’s perfectionist touch.
We’ll team this up with some equally fresh Nike Air Dunk sneakers from Sneaker News. What better way to pick up the punchy blue and dazzle from the new Spectrum collection than with these Nike favourites in their new Game Royal guise. A silhouette that sells out in seconds, as comfortable as it is lit, especially in this bright two-tone.
The Zenith Spectrum range has three equally dazzling colours you can read about in our story here, but put some sunglasses on, dazzling is an understatement. Price: CHF 34,900
Sure, they include a sparkly monochrome black version, but this is all about a celebration of bright colours and life after the darkness of 2020, so don’t be shy.
