It’s finally here: the Zenith x Time+Tide Night Surfer El Primero, the much-anticipated sequel to our popular Zenith x Time+Tide Night Surfer collaboration from 2021.

This time based on the Zenith Defy Skyline Skeleton, the Night Surfer El Primero, like the first Night Surfer, premieres several firsts for the Defy Skyline collection, while standing out as a uniquely handsome piece with an undeniable Australian aesthetic.

Not only is it the first Defy Skyline in titanium, it’s also the first Skyline Skeleton to have a gradient-colour dial, as well as the first to incorporate lume into the bridges of the star motif on the dial. The liquid blue gradient dial is inspired by the waves turning an abyss blue as night takes over dusk, with the skeletonised design allowing peeks at PVD blue-treated movement elements.

It’s also even “surfier” than the OG Night Surfer thanks to a screw-down crown as well as a rubber strap option, which is a cinch to swap on thanks to the Defy Skyline’s quick-change strap system. Measuring up at 41mm x 11.6mm x 46.3mm, it’s slightly larger than the OG, however has a similar weight at 105g on bracelet and 102g on rubber strap. All the while featuring a more robust construction and sportier aesthetic.

A complex movement also beats under the hood: a high-beat El Primero calibre derived from the legendary chronograph. This high-tech movement sports a silicon escapement and ticks at 36,000 vph for up to 60 hours. The rapid beat rate is shown off with the six o’clock sub-dial, as the hand traces its perimeter in just 10 seconds. It’s a substantial upgrade over the original; a covetous movement for a covetous watch.

Why buy from us?

We aren't your usual AD, purchase history NOT required.

We are here to democratise watches. We approach watches with an open mind. Your budget, your AD relationships, the current state of  your collection, it doesn’t make a difference to us – we see value at every end of the spectrum, and we can help build your collection, build your knowledge while keeping it all as fun as absolutely possible. We are all about opening up the conversation, and about giving you advice that has value.

Don't take our word for it, check out our recent Google reviews:

"For as long as I'm alive, I will ALWAYS check Time&Tide before buying another watch. I'm going to have difficulty explaining how over-the-top and personable their customer service is through a mere Google review. You're going to have to feel it for yourself, and I have no doubt that you will..." Read the full review.

"Really enjoyed the visit to Time+Tide Watches Melbourne, clearly run by enthusiasts, appreciated the honest opinions, refreshing to chat to guys with appreciation for watches in general who aren’t trying to push a certain brand or meet quotas, different to the traditional visit to an AD, but certainly in a good way." Read the review.

"I'm a new customer and have had a great experience. I live outside of Australia and Time+Tide are the only retailers for DOXA in my region, Sean and his team have been nothing but accommodating in helping me purchase my watch and also facilitate a non standard pick up method. Really appreciate the help and time fellas, cheers. Highly recommended and will definitely be back for another DOXA in the future." Read the review.

"Great group people, that are very knowledgeable. The location itself is a little hidden and may be easily missed. The staff themselves were very friendly and honest about their opinion. It is definitely more relaxed and friendly then other watch AD. I can recommend stopping in there and having a discussion about watches if you’re passionate about them. Overall, very great experience and happy with my purchase." Read the review.

"Definitely had a great experience choosing a watch to buy. They were extremely knowledgeable and gave me plenty of options and suggestions that fit my needs. Definitely were not pushy and it looks like everyone there just has a passion for watches. Shout out Kieran!" Read the review.
