Points of Mention
This watch is sold with its original Zelos box, watch roll and paperwork. The watch comes with two 20mm straps, a tropic style rubber strap and a vintage leather strap. The watch is from October 2018 and is sold in worn condition, but overall great condition as you can see. The watch comes with our 12-Months Warranty.
Zelos was founded by Elshan Tang in 2014 based in Singapore, at that time they launched three watches Helmsman, Chroma and Abyss on Kickstarter with great success, their cutting-edge designs use materials such as bronze and carbon fibre.
Here we have a 2018 Zelos Mako V2 500m Diver Ocean limited to 100 pieces with a 40mm satin brushed stainless steel case, the curve of the case leads to a lug-to-lug length of 46mm and a case thickness of 15mm gives the watch an impressive wrist presence. At 4 o’clock a signed screw-down crown with deep knurling for extra grip, the unidirectional bezel has a ceramic black dive insert holding a box sapphire crystal. A wave-textured black dial plays with light as you rotate your wrist, an outer teal-coloured 60-minute chapter ring adds a pop of ocean colour. Applied disc and triangular indexes that remind us of shark teeth mark the hours, and at 6 o’clock a framed date window. Slender sword hands have an infill of luminance complemented with a tapered teal-coloured sweeping second hand with a lume tip, a combination of C3 and BGW9 SuperLumiNova creates a nighttime punch of luminance. At 12 o’clock we have the Zelos motif and at 6 o’clock Automatic and 500m water resistance in a matching Teal colour completing this striking sports diver. On the reverse, a screw-down case back with an embossed Mako shark in the centre is what the watch model has been named after, inside an automatic Sellita SW200-1, 26 jewels, 28,800 beats per hour. The watch comes with two straps, a vintage 20mm leather strap and a 20mm Tropic rubber strap in a leather watch roll and comes with its Zelos presentation box and paperwork.
If you are in the market for an incredibly well-built, beautifully designed micro-brand diver that won't break the bank, I think you can now end your search as you've found it... We've handled and sold a few Zelos over the years and each year they feel like they are just getting better and better, even at retail the value is undeniable, so once they become pre-owned like this one its an absolute no-brainer!
