Solid sports style from Zenith – the Defy Classic

Post by koimaster » July 18th 2018, 10:10am

In recent times, Zenith have made a marked change of tack — away from the oversized heritage pieces that have been their main focus. The Pilot watches are still there, of course, but now the Defy shares top billing as a contemporary alternative. And while the Defy is dominated by the aggressively skeletonised look that we know and love, this solid-dialled Defy Classic is perhaps my number one pick. The dial does a great job of toning down the statement aspect of the Defy, and letting the excellent case and bracelet shine. To my mind this is a really interesting option for a daily watch; it’s a fairly novel design from an interesting brand, it’s comfortable, practical and lightweight. It also looks great on the wrist. The case shape and titanium construction make it a slightly less conventional offering, but that’s not a bad thing. If you still want to run with the pack, but at the outskirts, this sporty, sleek Defy Classic could be just what you’re after.

Very ghey.
Haha!

Having been out of the scene for a few years, I've been browsing and the Defy Classic is one of the newer releases that most appeals to me. Love everything about it. I'd be very happy with the blue dial or the skeleton dial, on the fantastic looking bracelet:

From what I'm seeing since I've been back, even the prices don't seem completely out of touch with reality, compared with the mainstream brands.
