    Re: Zenith Defy Classic Openworked strap options (pics)

    I got to try it on at the AD today. I was surprised how well it wore for its size, and how light it was. No matter that I “knew” both of these things, I was still pleasantly surprised. When I first became aware of this watch, it was between this and the white OP39 for my next purchase, and the OP won out then. This is now on top of my want list for 2020.

    The bracelet is the best option IMO. The straps are nice too but the bracelet is so well done and incredibly comfortable, I’ll probably never use the straps. Get it on the bracelet.

    It looks great on you. And a wise choice getting the white OP39 first....I love mine. Next piece for me will probably be the El Primero 38. Thinking of selling my Pam to fund it since it gets zero wrist time. The older I get, the smaller my watch preference is becoming....38mm to 39mm is my sweet spot.

    The El Primeros are sweet. I was impressed with how versatile they are. If you’re not wearing your Pam, then it’ll be a good swap. I too find 38-39mm to be the sweet spot, which is why I was surprised the Defy wore so well. The OP is the best daily wear watch IMO.

    Hi, nicely done !

    I was told by the manufacture that the caseback needed to be opened in order to swap the endlinks...apparently not...

    Did you use loctite when you put the screws back on ?

    Thanks

    Agree! Always cheaper to buy on bracelet and later add rubber / leather options than the other way around

    No you don’t need to open the caseback to change the straps. I didn’t use loctite nor would I recommend using loctite unless you never intend on switching out the bracelet or straps.
