    My Zenith Defy Classic forged carbon concept watch

    What do you guys think? I changed the existing black ceramic Zenith Defy (on left) and made a concept watch (on right). The case material went from ceramic to a lightweight forged carbon. The bezel remains ceramic for durability, The chapter ring and seconds hand are yellow. The strap went from rubber to fabric with yellow accented stitching.

    I like the color matching of the strap to the dial but fabric strap with carbon just wouldn't feel right. Rubber strap with yellow highlights would do it.

    Re carbon version coming with a full carbon bracelet...I've never heard of a carbon bracelet does anyone actually make one?

    Where do you hear that? I can't imagine that would be a good idea. Forged carbon is prone to fraying/chipping.

    The Zenith carbon is not forged, it's layered and machined. Different process.

    Perhaps so, but it still seems just as susceptible to damage:
