A limited edition Zenith El Primero/Defy is always like catnip for us here at NWC magazine.
Groovy beige strap, beige sub-second dial trim, oh yes we like that, titanium case, beefy 45mm width, nice…oh heck, the price is £18,500. It’s a sell-out in the first 50 pieces, but you can add your name to the waiting list, so there could be another 50-100 next year.
OK, we can dream, here’s the word from Zenith;
Limited to just 50 examples, the DEFY Extreme Desert edition draws inspiration from the raw, elemental beauty of the desert. Crafted in titanium, the 1/100th of a second chronograph features Pusher protectors and bezel crafted in Falcon’s Eye gemstone, paired with a tinted sapphire dial with beige counters.
