Zenith Defy Skyline - Silver White 41mm

Jan 21, 2023,01:06 AM

I saw this timepiece in the store recently and commented that it reminded me instantly of another model of a high-end watch brand. But I love it especially for its piano keyboard-like (maybe due to the shiny applied) hour indices in the dial and its unique “racing 10-seconds hand”. Plus the brand took the current craze of the integrated sport watch bracelet to another level with its easily changeable strap system. A rubber strap was included in the mix which comes in subtle olive green (for this specific model), that I found refreshing and a break from the usual black or blue rubber straps found in other brands. I like the size and design of the crown which makes it easier to adjust time, while the small date window with the white background blends it nicely on the silver white dial. The butterfly clasp on the brush bracelet makes fastening/unfasten the watch a breeze without causing any “skin bite”. Definitely Zenith has studied the market well and its recent product offering while “controversial” to some is a boon to others wanting to get a timepiece in their own pace and time.

Here are two wrist shots of this timepiece with the car at full stop.

Thanks for reading my post. Happy weekend!

Gong Xi Fa Cai! Happy CNY!

While i spot your reply in the other thread, here you show the Zenith i was talking about. If i buy my first Zenith, this one is the highest on the list. You swap even the bracelet to the rubber strap in your car, so it show how easy Zenith made the quick... 

True! I think Zenith is stepping up its game …

From pure and great movement to watch design and changeable strap system. Many times I have the tendency to be tired of a certain timepiece and would like to change the straps to leather or rubber. But the fear of scratching the lugs or the hassle of brin... 

A very good point

I am afraid of scratching lugs when replacing straps. That a watch shop can avoid scratches? Ones a watch shop ruin my Longines. Not only this, the watch shop refuse to sell me a FC Monolithic and could not show me the green FC world timer. But they gave ...
