Rewinding back a little over a year to Baselworld 2017, there were really just a handful of watches that grabbed my attention and the Swiss Zenith Defy El Primero 21 (Hands-on here) led the pack. In fact, it was among my favorite watches from last year. It checked all the right boxes. Fun to look at? Check. Functional chronograph? Check. Modern movement? Check. Reasonably affordable? Check. When I got the opportunity to review the titanium model, I jumped. For the most part, it lived up to the hype I had for it.
