The DEFY Midnight – Zenith, Exploring Two Sides of Femininity

With its new creations dedicated entirely to women, Zenith is elevating both ends of the spectrum of women’s watches. On one side, the resolutely contemporary DEFY Midnight and on the other, the timelessly elegant Elite collection.

the DEFY Midnight

There is a dreamer in each of us, gazing at the starry night sky and taking in the infinite potential that lies ahead. For its first purely feminine watch, Zenith sought inspiration from the cosmos when creating the DEFY Midnight, a versatile sporty-chic timepiece with a unique celestial dial, conceived with free-spirited women in mind. As much a jewel as it is a watch, the DEFY Midnight is the perfect companion for the independent women of today: confident, expressive and with a style of their own. Living by their own rules and assertive in their choices, DEFY Midnight women are never afraid to stand out and project their dreams.

Housed in a 36mm stainless steel case embellished with brilliant-cut diamonds, the dial of the DEFY Midnight gives Zenith’s “time to reach your star” philosophy a literal, visual manifestation. Available in deep blue or grey colors, the dial features a glossy finish with a vertical gradient effect for an unprecedented depth. Portraying the night sky above the endless horizon, where the dark vastness of space gives way to the glimmer of starlight, the dial at once enchants and enlightens the wearer. Evoking the Zenith starry sky, the brand’s faceted star emblem is the highest, brightest point in the depicted night sky. Completing the celestial landscape are stars of different sizes – some of which glow in the dark. A third dial made of white mother-pearl with a vertical gradient effect evokes moonlight on a cloudy night. White diamonds are applied on every hour marker, except at 3 o’clock where the date window is placed. Equipped with the automatic Elite in-house movement, the DEFY Midnight provides dependable precision and autonomy of 50 hours. A star-shaped oscillating weight brings a galactic element to the case-back view.

The DEFY Midnight features an assortment of bracelets and straps that can easily be swapped by the wearer, allowing the DEFY Midnight to adapt itself to different looks and situations. The integrated stainless steel bracelet, as well as a selection of colored satin and leather straps with rubber backing, can be swapped by means of a quick strap-change mechanism integrated directly onto the back of the straps, and requiring no tools or special skills for the owner to do on her own, be it for a change of seasons or just a change of outfit. Each DEFY Midnight will come in a special box that includes 3 additional colored straps and an interchangeable folding clasp.

5 Top Jewelry Trends of Winter 2020

Wearing jewelry can make your shine and glitter during gloomy winter months. It can improve your mood and the way people perceive you. Clothes and jewelry can affect the impression we leave on others.

Women can adjust this impression to their personal needs and desires using the right jewelry on different occasions.

This is our small contribution to describing the current jewelry trends so sit back and find out more about the top choices this winter.

5 Top Jewelry Trends of Winter 2020
5 Top Jewelry Trends of Winter 2020

The explosion of colors

A variety of colors is an efficient way to beat the winter cold and gloom. That’s why wearing a plentitude of colorful jewelry is one of the predominant trends this winter.

For starters, let your neck glow with a myriad of colorful necklaces. You can both get necklaces in several colors and a few separate one-colored items.

What’s more, you should pick your bracelets and earrings the same way. Winter is long enough to try on dozens of combinations wearing all those jewelry pieces.
Our two cents in addition to these pieces: get yourself a shiny, glittery brooch for your suit lapel. This will shine your way to every winter night outing.

The domination of pendant earrings

Earrings are loyal allies to every woman in every season. This winter, we are already witnessing the domination of statements earrings.

From feathery and rhinestone pendant earrings and huggies to chandelier and teardrop earrings, there’s a variety of options for your ear.

Again, there’s no need to be conservative with colors when you’re choosing your earrings. The more different colors and shapes you keep in your jewelry box, the more combos you can make.

Since we’ve seen the revival of the 1980s style in the last few years, opting for larger earrings will help you follow suit with other elements of the eighties.

Rebellious jewelry

Another trend of the early eighties, jewelry that express rebellion is one of the hottest trends this winter.

Depending on your personality, you can choose more radical items or less bold pieces.

For instance, you can just put a studded choker around your neck and a punk bracelet on your hand. Combined with darker makeup, you’ll display a darker overall appearance.

On the other hand, you can have your eyebrow pierced or get a metal new wave necklace.

Still, avoid wearing only rebellious jewelry because that might look boring and uninspiring.

Joining together some punk and traditional pieces of jewelry is what you should be looking for in 2020.

Silver is the new gold

Silver and gold interchangeably dominate the top lists when it comes to the most popular metals on the market.

From what we can see today on catwalks, silver is going to be in charge this winter and later on.

This gives you a chance to get silver items in every jewelry style you decide to follow. For instance, if you’re planning to use some ideas from the paragraph about rebellious jewelry, matte silver items are the right choice for you.

Also, let’s not underestimate the potential of classic silver jewelry. They can be a great fit for some outdoor winter events. For instance, if you’re planning to attend a wedding at an outdoor venue, such as this exclusive wedding venue in College Station, a silver jewelry combo will express both class and fashion awareness. Plus, silver jewelry perfectly corresponds with snowy event surroundings.

Odd-numbered sets

When talking about awareness, women should keep pushing the envelope with their jewelry combos. Even though it’s not easy to be innovative today, wearing odd-numbered sets is still a strong message.

For instance, you can occasionally wear only one earring from your sets. People still pay special attention to one-earring women so that’s a simple way of being unique.

Similarly, try to interchangeably wear a different number of bracelets. This will add to the variety of jewelry combinations you have up your sleeve.

Last, but not least, you might want to try on multi-layered necklaces that contain several thinner items.

All these variations will make you stand out from the crowd and send original fashion messages.

Conclusion

Summer leaves more space for jewelry combos because the clothes we wear are thinner. Also, we wear fewer items during warmer seasons. This makes jewelry more prominent and easily noticed.

In winter, on the other hand, jewelry needs to be emphasized. That’s how it will find its way to observers’ eyes.

Therefore, this winter asks for longer and larger earrings, as well as for thicker necklaces.

If you want to be extremely different from others, think about getting some rebellious pieces of jewelry.

Wearing one, three or five items instead of even-numbered sets is another way to stress out your fashion statement.

Follow our tips and let your jewelry spread the light through long winter nights.
