Fusalp x Zenith, the pair of stars on the slopes

Zenith and Fusalp have created a collection of watches and clothing designed to approach the winter season in style.

Who does not know Fusalpi, born in 1952 on the shores of Lake Annecy? Since its creation by a pair of tailors, the brand has revolutionized alpine ski wear by creating the first technical tapered pants to be worn by French teams in the 1960s. This year, it has teamed up with Swiss brand Zenith, the time of a shared collection. It includes two bespoke watches created in Le Locle and a contemporary sports wardrobe. “This is a new kind of partnership, which is particularly close to our hearts,” explains Julien Tornare, CEO of Zenith. More than a fashion house, Fusalp is inherently innovative. His relentless quest to produce highly technical yet fashionable clothing is something that Zenith fully identifies with.”

In a limited edition of 300 pieces in a black ceramic case and 100 pieces in white ceramic, the DEFY Classic Skeleton Fusalp (€9,700) goes well with fashionable ski wear, with its symmetrical open dial. The dial features the signature five-pointed star of the Manufacture bound by a snowflake. A dial with extended depth from a lower open level in rose gold and surrounded by a ring in French tricolor tones, blue, red and white. A nod to the Fusalp house’s French origins and a recurring design element in her creations.

The rubber strap is also designed to incorporate elements inspired by the capsule collection of clothing designed by Fusalp exclusively for this collaboration. The tire even has a fabric-like texture, with a raised pattern made up of concentric rectangles. A fashion detail par excellence, the Fusalp x Zenith ski jackets have a trick: storm cuff sleeves with a zippered opening, designed to slip on easily and see your watch between the outer layer of the shell and the soft, thin woven fabric below.

These DEFY Classic Skeleton Fusalp special editions with a diameter of 41 mm are driven by the Elite high-frequency automatic movement, equipped with a silicon lever and escape wheel, for a power reserve of 50 hours.
