New: Zenith Defy Extreme E "Island X Prix" Edition
Zenith continues to sponsor the Electric Rally Championship as the official timekeeper of the X Prix event.

Here, Zenith moved forward with a second season with sustainable momentum.
The base watch released is the Defy Extreme Carbon, which Zenith claims is the world's lightest (verifiable claim) and the world's toughest 1/100-second automatic high-frequency chronograph (a bit hard to verify, but meets 1 /100th resolution, maybe). The movement is not new, but a redesign of the dial aesthetics. The new dial now looks like a "dashboard for a chronograph inspired by a futuristic racing car," as the launch promo claims. We wholeheartedly agree.high quality replica watches
The strap is rubber, as is the original Defy Extreme Carbon, which we consider an oversized Defy 21 in a carbon fiber case. Continuing the sustainability theme, this strap is made from recycled Continental CrossContact material used in the first season of the season. A concept somewhat reminiscent of the Roger Dubius experiment.
