    Pulled the trigger, the Zenith Defy Classic Skeleton

    Ok, I have been eyeing this piece ever since it came out. A skeleton watch was something I had always wanted to own, but somehow the execution of most deflates my interest after a while. Of late I have been visiting this piece in store in a bid to convince myself I didn't need yet another watch...which didn't pan out so well. Similar story for many of us? After the dealer came out with an offer that was a hard pass, here it is on my wrist. What works is the symmetry. Truth be told, I was a little worried how wearability would turn out over time. This is as much a watch as it is a bracelet, it wears really, really well. And this is coming from someone who is pretty used to Rolex's oyster bracelets.

    I'm posting a quick shot here, shot at the Tiger Beer Street Lab located on the last level of Jewel Changi Airport. This was taken on the first day, the mega garden in a dome (costing a cool 1.3bn dollars) opened to the public. If you guys ever come to Singapore, you need to pay a visit to Jewel. Will be posting more photos of the watch when time allows!

    Stunning watch. Very crisp and sexy.
    Wear it and enjoy in good health.

    It is to me prettier than most skeleton watches (a competitor for looks might be those clean Rado Trues with semitranslucent mother of pearl dials).

    Congrats!

    That is a great watch, and I love it even not being a fan of Skeleton watches. And the icing on the cake IMO is the gorgeous bracelet that comes with it. Definitely one of the most beautifully made, comfortable and flexible bracelets I have ever tried. It is by no means an inexpensive watch, but I am pleased that Zenith is able to do such quality at that price. Definitely I watch in which I see true value.

    Congratulations!

    Cheers,
    Carl

    There's something about skeleton watches I usually don't like, yet can't actually define. This one however, yowza!

    Amazing photo!

    I am obsessed as well. Do you find it wearable as a daily watch? I love it, but don't need another dress watch...
