I am not much for watches and really do not know anything about men's chronograph watches. However, when I was hanging out in DC my girl and I decided to go in an expensive jewelry store. As she looked at rings (hint hint) I kept strolling around. During my stroll I just happened to walk by the glass case of watches. Out of curiosity I closely looked at what they had. As I expected the expensive Omega Chronoraph watches where there, as well as Omega watches of all kinds. These things were expensive which I already knew. Then there were some other brands I never heard of and then I saw a brand called Zenith.
What caught my eye was these unusual looking chronograph watches for men. They looked like something out of a sci-fi movie. What I saw was the Zenith Men's 96.0529.4035 / 51.M Defy Xtreme Tourbillon Titanium Chronograph Watch
It looks like something designed by HR Geiger for the Predator to wear! Man was it cool, but when I saw the price of almost 150 KI could not believe it. I thought Omega and another well known brand of watch only cost that much. Man was I wrong!
What did this damn thing do I thought. So I asked the jeweler, "What's it do?" He looked at me and smiled and said "Nothing. Only 25 have been made." He then reached in, pulled it out, and let me hold it. Since it cost as much as one of my underwater properties I was apprehensive to touch it, but I did. It was heavy and it's watch arms moved by the movement of my wrist so it required no battery. When my girl looked at it she was shocked at the price and said it was ugly and kept browsing. She is not impressed by material things.
The jeweler cave me a little history lesson about Zenith watches. He said the Swiss company had been in business for over a hundred years and that they have the highest quality of manufacturing for hand made watches. Zenith watches are used for exploration, aviation and the navy. So I thought great, more tax payer dollars at work. Anyways, I was not really paying attention because I was just looking at how cool the watch was and where the nearest 7-11 was so I could buy a lottery ticket. Lottery winnings was what was needed to by this joker!
This watch is made of unique material called Zinichum a form of Titanium so it is almost indestructable and very shock resistant. It can survive depths of a 3300 feet. Not only are these watches like mini tanks taken but they are incredibly stylish. I found this out as I looked at one of the catalogs the jeweler had and saw the creative director of the company Thierry Nataf. I had no idea Zenith was the king of the chrono and that people put so much effort into a watch.
This is by no means a girly watch. I liked looking at it very much, especially as the little hands and inner workings of the watch functioned. I politely handed it back to the jeweler and said, "some day" He told me. "I will be here when that day comes"
This is an ultimate splurge and if I had 150k I would have got it; Why not. It really does not matter what the watch does, in my eyes it is a cool status symbol. It kept the time and would have been awesome babe magnet if I was single. I really do not know much about watches like I said. However, I think this watch is simply the best because it looks cool, otherworldly and is heavy. The Zenith Defy Watch is expensive but is not your typical gold, diamond, bling-bling watch.
