The perfect fake Zenith DEFY line is a collection that has been launched, discontinued, and resurrected several times by our friends at Le Locle through different periods of time. Originally released in 1969, the DEFY line has seen numerous facelifts and at one point it was responsible for almost killing Zenith taking the brand down an abyss from where it had to be later rescued by Mr. Biver’s protégée Jean-Frederic Dufour —now CEO of Rolex. Perhaps the most unsuccessful watch line ever released by Zenith during the reign of Thierry Nataf as CEO of Zenith between 2002 and 2009, the Zenith DEFY collection has made a glorious comeback after its revival and facelift in 2017.
This collection is currently getting a lot of traction and attention from watch collectors and connoisseurs. A watch that sorta looks like a hybrid between a TAG Heuer and a Hublot and that was relaunched in 2017 after Mr. Biver took the reigns of Zenith after Aldo Magada’s sudden departure. Frankly, if TAG Heuer and Hublot were to have a child, the Zenith DEFY El Primero 21 would be it and that is not a bad thing. The Zenith DEFY El Primero 21 is an impressive looking watch that honestly doesn’t look much like a Zenith even when you compare it to the early DEFY watches from the 70s.
Powered by a 1/100th of a second chronograph mechanism, the quality replica DEFY El Primero 21 is the new lineage that continues to prove why Zenith is one of the leaders and pioneers in making the most reliable and very accurate chronographs.
When you handle the new DEFY El Primero 21 in the metal, its craftsmanship speaks volumes about the brand and also why this new collection is doing so well nowadays. While Jaeger-LeCoultre is the brand that gives you the most bang for your buck when it comes to pretty much any watch, when it comes to in-house chronographs, the Zenith DEFY El Primero 21 comes in up to par. Especially if you are looking for a more modern and less traditional and classic timepiece.
