As usual, main feature of Zenith Defy El Primero 21 Carbon is hidden in its name. In my opinion it was matter of time until we see this material in Zenith watches. Well, now there is a chance to have one. I have to say that photos looked surprisingly good, so it was interesting to see watch in person. Baselworld gave a perfect opportunity to check newcomer closer, and now I can tell you few things about fresh model.

Main color here is grey. It is this greyish black, which you usually see on carbon parts installed on sportcars. Here wachmaker decided to manufacture whole case and even buttons out of lightweight material. I have to admit that carbon looks surprisingly good with traditional skeleton dial. Zenith Defy El Primero 21 Carbon doesn’t scream with any unnecessary colors, just purposeful grey shades, which should be fine to wear with any outfit. I have to note that each case will be completely different due to manufacturing technology. As we all know, carbon fiber parts are baked by layering material “sheets”, so you won’t get exactly the same pattern on any of those watches. This might be a perfect feature for those who strive for ultimate exclusivity.
As for the movement, here Zenith placed El Primero 21. Nevertheless, there is one special thing – for the first time whole calibre is made in black color. Obviously, this was done in order to get unified look, and I can admit it – watch looks bold and solid. There is nothing that jumps out of image and it is perfect. There are several red accents on the dial, but somehow they work together with case shade and don’t look like something extra on the watch. All this combined with black alligator strap which is finished by titanium and carbon clasp. I would say that croco leather is the matter of taste, nobody stops you from replacing this part with something different.
