Felipe Pantone X Zenith Defy 21 : Colors of the Watch

From age 12, Spanish artist Felipe Pantone was drawn to the art of graffiti and color. After a degree in Applied Arts, and in the pure street art fashion, Pantone decided to never show his face in order to let his work shine. Inspired by the TV’s test patterns, he quickly chose the rainbow as his color palette. The references are multiple, from our childhood’s crayon box to Victor Vasarely. In watchmaking, the ‘rainbow’ watches – which often refer to watches with a multicolored bezel – have gained tremendous success over the years. For Zenith, a manufacturer well-known for their ‘El Primero’ chronograph, this was the very first time working in the field of contemporary art. It was also one of the first times that PVD coating was used to integrate color. This technical master stroke allowed to highlight even the tinies components of the watch. A piece that is both meticulous and spectacular, just like Felipe Pantone’s work.
