The dial structure has been simplified with the Defy Skyline Skeleton, which uses a 4 pointed star as its base, though you’d be forgiven if that shape didn’t immediately jump out to you as a star. The addition of the contrasting stripe down the center of the arms that make up the dial frame the negative spaces in a way the other Skyline Skeleton watches do not, and I hope to see it return in future iterations of the watch. I’d also like to see a case more akin to the last generation Defy Classic, but that might be unreasonable.
The first Night Surfer Defy Classic was limited to 100 units, and part two will see 200 examples produced, each priced at 11,900 CHF. That price is inclusive of the titanium bracelet, as well as the blue rubber strap option. It’s a high price, but this is also a lot of watch, and in my view, is the best Defy Skyline Skeleton to date. Zenith.
