The Zelos Starfighter. No, not a new Star Wars merchandising opportunity, but a very cool name for a watch.
Zelos are a very popular indie brand, making tough dive watches, with a great spec for the money, plus beautiful dials. The Starfighter also features an ETA Swiss movement, so yeah, it’s a winner at $1400 (some models are $1599 by the way) in our view as it captures 70s chrono style with that box crystal touch which Seiko loves to do very well too.
Stunning meteorite dial option, plus a Spitfire version with a piece of Spitfire aluminium in there.
Here’s the word from Zelos;
Presenting the Starfighter, one of the sleekest automatic chronographs with its sharp lugs and slim 11mm case thickness. Powered by a Swiss ETA 2894 with bi-compax layout which is visible from the back with a custom ‘turbine’ rotor.
The Starfighter goes on sale on the 27th December by the way. More info here.
