    love it. i've learned to willingly suspend my normal initial reaction when it comes to defys and sort of let them wash over me, and frequently found new appreciation in that way. memorably, david called the ur-defy model 'the lamborghini miura' of watch cases, and on prolonged examination i have found that to be very true. zenith took some design chances with the defy line, and scored some hits and some misses, but they are nearly all worth taking a close look at

    Well, if that's what it is, I detest it!!! Never liked Marmite....!

    However, when it comes to seventies Zenith watches, some may be a little zany (like that one) but they grow on you after a while.....

    Well...... LOL!

    I appreciate the sharing, but will have to look at this several times. I swear I wore a Timex that looked similar to this, but that was back in 1975. That was a long time ago.

    Thanks for posting the picture!

    I like these. Does anyone remember the old sci-fi programme Space 1999 with its very seventies set design? This would look just right on Commander Koenig's wrist.

    I like it! They definitely took some chances with bold designs in the '70s, especially with the Defy line.

    What a great watch! IMO, this is the best calibre of the series. These 70's watches do take some time to get used to, but they sure get noticed.

    Well I wonder if any members out there have one or am I the only one? I know a you guys have quite a collection. This watch is fairly heavy and tactile, it makes you want to hold it (like smooth pebble) if you know what I mean. I will wear it soon but I don't normally like leather straps so may look to see if there is a suitable bracelet for it, I am not sure if there is but I am sure one of you guys will know.
    Cheers
