    Seriously considering the Zenith Defy Classic as an very day watch.

    Hey guys. I tend to practice serial monogamy with my watches. I currently have an omega aqua terra annual calendar. I love the watch, but find it heavy and a bit too subdued for my taste. I would like to move into a Defy blue dial with bracelet for a lighter watch with a bit more bling factor.

    However. I daily wear my watches. No I won't be hammering nails with it but I may go camping, hiking with it and use it every day for my office job.

    Would love to hear back from other defy bracelet users on their experiences of this watch..


    Thanks.

    I do a lot of hiking/camping too + canyoneering and climbing.

    I have a 100dls Seiko quartz, that I only use for those situations.

    You can certainly use the Defy... but it would not be my first choice.

    I am assuming you are speaking about the titanium bracelet? Although I do not own the Titanium, my father has the Ceramic El Primero Defy 21. I know it's totally different, but I honestly don't think either should be worn to something like camping either. They are fine timepieces, and I don't think Zenith originally intended them to be beat around. However, that being said, I do believe they will survive in the wilderness, just that you'd come out with some potential damage to the case...

    If you like the watch buy it, but get a G Shock for camping. In terms of the classic as a piece, I found the plain dial a little ‘plain’ and thought the date window looked narrow and a little pinched. The overall style is great though and I loved the bracelet.

    I don't have any experience with it, but I've always thought the Defy would make a great one watch collection. Good luck with the decision!

    I am with you in wanting that watch also in blue. It is a stunner. I wish I could pull off the chrono but it is just too big for me. The classic is right in that sweet spot.

    I am not sure I would have the heart to wear that out camping...that’s what my aerospace or a g shock is for IMHO. I am interested to hear how other owners feel it holds up to daily wear.

    Another one waiting to hear how the watch looks after some use.

    I love Defy classic for the blue dial, the diameter is perfect, much better for a daily use than the greater defy Chrono, looks nice on the wrist...

    Without any doubt, it is one in my desired list.
