Zelos : Mako Bronze 500m Diver

Postby koimaster » May 17th 2018, 9:18am

Now available in CUSN8 bronze, a metal that starts out a shiny gold color and patinas with use. Each and every watch will patina differently, making your watch truly unique.


The Mako Shark: the fastest shark in the world. Smaller and streamlined, it was an ideal image for our latest diver's watch compared to our previous 'Hammerhead' model.

Featuring design cues from the 60s, constructed with modern technology, the Mako Diver is a capable diver's timepiece. The sapphire crystal has a 'box' shape similar to the acrylic crystals of old, without the scratches common with acrylic. A ceramic bezel offers extreme hardness against all the abuse you could throw at it. The watch also features 500m of water resistance to survive any depth you could take it down to.

The dial and bezel is painted for maximum visibility in the dark. A mixture of C3 and BGW9 lume is applied generously across all markings and the crown. The 3D patterns on the dial reflects light beautifully and makes it a joy to behold.

At 40mm in diameter, the watch does not look out of place on a dressier outfit. A short 46mm lug to lug length also ensures a good fit even on smaller wrists.

It has a fully indexed bezel so it's a real dive watch. BUT! It is bronze and decay and rot has set in. It will turn to dust on your wrist while you dive. Worse yet, it's not a Rolex.

It's okay but lacks the bulk to be considered a tool dive wartch. Oh, and Foggy has been assimilated.

If one actually dives, saltwater will loosen up that patina to come out and look old, weathered and beaten.
