Comparing the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak with the just released Zenith Defy Skyline, and the other way round, is not an easy task. There are many more differences than you may be imagining at first glance. Yes, there is an apparent similarity, but if you dig a little deeper more and more differences emerge. If you are a fanboy of Audemars Piguet or Zenith I can tell you that there is no winner or looser. Instead, I provide you with facts so that you can make up your own minds.
