Zelos Watch is a fairly new micro brand, established in 2014. This Singapore based watch company has already an impressive history as they managed to release 3 models within two years, and their family is about to expand by another promising timepiece. Chriscentro, who already contributed to Lug2Lug a few times before with his guest posts, got a chance to take this outstanding photo shoot of the Zelos Hammerhead, the latest watch from Zelos Watch Company.
Zelos Hammerhead 1000 m is a no-joke dive watch. First of all, this watch uses really high quality materials, which are hard to find among other watch brands. You can choose between bronze and stainless steel case, different types of dials including meteorite dial(!), solid bronze bezel, ceramic bezel, or Damascus steel bezel. It’s enough to give me a headache. If you happen to choose a stainless steel case, you will also get a matching metal bracelet. Otherwise, the watch will come on an Isforane style rubber strap. On top of that, all watches will come with an additional canvas strap, as a part of a stretch goal achieved during pre-order phase. Nifty.
Whichever material you choose, the case of the Zelos Hammerhead is 44 mm in diameter and the lug to lug distance is a reasonable 49 mm. This size should be a sweet spot for many watch enthusiasts. The watch however, sits rather high at 17 mm, which is due to the double domed sapphire crystal, which was also treated with AR coating of the inside. As the name suggests, the watch is water resistant to up to 1000 m for both bronze and stainless steel versions. It’s worth noting that the crown of the watch has a beautifully lumed sign on top of it, which is C3 lume by the way. Bezel, hands, and indices are also C3 lumed and the chapter ring is printed with a blue BGW9 lume.
This massive dive watch is powered by a well know Seiko made NH35 automatic movement. This workhorse provides great performance and at the same time keeps the price of the watch at a reasonable level.
Zelos Hammerhead 1000 m is still in the pre-order phase so you can still grab yours at a discounted price from Zelos website, starting from $429. Without further ado, here are impressive photos by Chrsicentro.
