7 watches inspired by adventurers and explorers

Journey through new horological vistas with these timepieces inspired by those who traverse unexplored terrain.

  • Zenith Defy Classic Range Rover Special


    In 1972, British explorer John Blashford-Snell crossed the Darien Gap, an inhospitable marshland and forest area between Colombia and Panama, in a Land Rover and with a Zenith chronograph on his wrist. Since 2016, the two brands have worked together, and their third joint timepiece is the Zenith Defy Classic Range Rover Special. Powered by a new Elite automatic movement, the 41mm titanium watch pays tribute to Range Rover’s Evoque compact SUV, with features such as a skeletonised dial inspired by the latter’s wheel design.
