I had a suspicion it might be. I think you might have mentioned it before. Beautiful area.

The CW and Omega were on my list for a very long time, ended up going with the Omega as I wanted to finally treat myself to a premium/luxury/fancy brand watch and it's all I've worn since I got it!

Definitely depends on budget though!

I have been thinking about getting a Zenith for ages. Tried on a few, but haven’t been able to decide. Then along comes a new model. :)

These look rather tasty. :thumbup:

My only reservation is the 10 second sub-dial. :problem:

Maybe I could get used to it. If I could happily buy a watch without a seconds hand, why not one with one that doesn’t make it easy to time a minute…

Could sell a Rolex, buy a Zenith and use the rest of the proceeds for a couple of weeks holiday.

^ Blue on bracelet is sharp Neil...

Respecting you have a magnificent collection, but are you a fan of the El Primero chronomaster tri colour dial chronograph at all?

^^^ Lance I do athestically like the chronomaster sport chronograph, particularly the white dial version that Paul (Stefs) has. However my initial thought when the watch was released was that the chronograph only being able to time an hour, combined with the wizzy chronograph seconds hand would annoy me.

I do also like the more dressy chronometer chronographs, but at the end of the day both that and the above are normal case shape chronographs.

Hence I had started looking at the angular case revival models, as something different.

That said my preference is still to look for something with a QR bracelet, that also takes a fitted rubber strap and the new defy ticks those boxes. I would also like something that won’t turn into the next “must have” integrated bracelet steel sports model.

Still dreaming about this one. I still have a few decades of saving before it’s buy time and I have to decide which color.

Zenith Defys are awesome. I want the regular blue dial 3-hander on bracelet. It’s what I dream about these days, but gotta wait awhile.

I saw a real life pic of one on a wrist on another forum and it was stunning Des, not OTT or blingy at all. Tracking one down may be a challenge though. JURA had one listed at £500 but out of stock and I'm not sure they really sold it at that price when in stock 😳
