Zelos are one of our fave indie brands, simply because they make tough, decent spec dive watches at a reasonable price. Amazing selection of dial colours too. Well, they’ve been busy during lockdown creating the Horizons range and it looks like they’ve nailed it.
39mm case sizes, lots of Superluminova, sapphire crystals and a 200m depth rating make these watches versatile all-rounders. There is a quick adjust steel bracelet, an impessive range of fume and different coloured dials, plus the ever dependable Miyota 9039 movement inside the case.
The 39mm case size is a good compromise between visual impact on the wrist, or in the water, and the practical aspect of wearing it all day. Some bigger dive watches need a big wrist frankly, so anything over say 42mm isn’t a watch that suits everyone. Zelos models, especially the recent bronze case editions, have sold out quickly online. So if you like the look of the Horizons range, best act sharpish.
Wear `em every day, go swimming on holiday, stay indoors until next May wearing a mask and shopping online…OK, sorry, we know it’s depressing being part of the New World Order.
Seriously, these are good value at $449 or therabouts on the website. The teal fume is a standout model for us, plus the brass detailed dial on the Moss Green model. Retro meets modern. More info at the Zelos site here.
