WHY THIS WATCH
Don't let the futuristic design fool you, Zenith's Defy lineup actually started all the way back in 1969, when Zenith introduced a lineup of chunky, rugged watches, with futuristic designs. The Defy line of the 70's was the high-tech option of the time.
The Defy line is characterized by hard corners and angles, and this Defy Extreme Chronograph is no exception. Take a look at the pictures of the side of the case and you'll get a huge does of B2 bomber design. The case runs at 45mm in diameter and 15.5mm thick. And yet...it fits! This is due to the short lugs and full titanium case. On the rubber strap, this is the perfect summer watch. The tinted sapphire crystal gives you a view of the skeletonized Zenith Cal. 9004.
Let's get to the meat of this watch, which is the stunning and innovative El-Primero Calibre 9004, which shows elapsed time up to 1/100th of a second. The central chronograph hand moves around the dial lightening fast, and is really fun to watch. Zenith achieved this by adding a second gear train that vibrates at 360,000 vph.
Using this watch, you notice it's very interesting functionally. The movement actually has two separate power reserves, one for the time (50 Hours) and one for the chronograph (50 min). These two power reserves are wound separately. Counterclockwise for the hours/minutes and clockwise for the chronograph. The chronograph power reserve is displayed at 12. Since the chronograph runs for 50 minutes after winding, there is no hours elapsed sub-counter.
Finally let's talk value. This watch retails for $18,000. Compare this to other 100th of second chronographs like the Mont Blanc Timewalker (Retail $67,000), FP Journe (Retail $45,000), or the Tag Mikrograph (Retail $50,000). You're really getting a lot for the money here, not just movement wise, but also, the titanium bracelet, velcro strap, and rubber straps are a joy to use and behold, especially with Zenith's quick change strap system.
