Zelos Mako II Bronze 500m Dive Watch
I bought this little beauty back in March. It is a sold out limited run model and this watch is number 9 of 100 (engraved on the case back and confirmed on the brass warranty card) and comes with the original packaging which includes the two original unworn straps and unworn bronze buckle, the leather watch roll, bronze warranty card, lovely wooden box with outer heavy duty cardboard sleeve.
Ive worn the watch intermittently over the last two months (on a non standard nato) and other than the natural (lovely IMHO) patina that has developed I cannot see a mark on the watch. Notwithstanding its 500m dive rating it has never been submersed in any kind of water. If you dont like the patina you can clean the watch to take it back to its original and new condition
but of course it will continue to develop patina and change over time.
The specification details of this watch are as follows:
20mm Lug width
46mm Lug to Lug Length
13.5mm thickness without crystal
Water Resistance :
Sapphire, 2.5mm thick vintage style 'Box' crystal
120 Clicks, Bronze, brushed and fully lumed
Swiss Sellita SW200
Textured with C3 and BGW9 lume
Signed crown with lume
While there are a number of stand out features of this watch, one of the things I have enjoyed the most is the slightly smaller size (diameter and height) of this watch so that it wears smaller and very well under cuffs and sleeves. Its been a refreshing change after many years of wearing larger divers and now has me planning to buy smaller watches in future (please note this is still a decent size watch
the reference to it being smaller is relative to the larger divers I normally wear).
While this watch looked lovely out of the box, to my eye it has improved significantly with the patina that has developed. I love the contrast of the cobalt-blue gloss textured dial and highly polished hands but apparently old case. Other than the size of the watch mentioned above the other real stand out feature for me of this watch is the lumed bronze bezel and lumed bronze crown. You just dont expect or see either of these in other bronze watches. See the attached photos or you can check out the Zelos website.
