Contemporary designs, manufactured with premium materials only seen on watches in five-figure price ranges. That was our aim when we started designing this range of watches. We surpassed this goal with three collections offering a distinct character, yet at accessible prices.

Each watch case is meticulously constructed with the latest CNC technologies. It is then individually handcrafted to bring out the contrasting polished and brushed surfaces.

The dial is a brilliant array of surfaces. The sunburst brushed dial is paired with the finely engraved stepped dial. A minute rings sits high above the dial offering a multi-layered visual experience.


Watch case: Stainless Steel (grade 316L) or Marine Bronze (grade CUSN8)

Watch size (Diameter/ Thickness): 40mm/ 11mm

Water resistant: 50 meters

Strap size: 20mm

Glass: Sapphire Font Crystal. Scratched only by Diamond

Movement:

Swiss Automatic

Swiss ETA 2824 or SW200

Dial: Multi Layered

Strap: Horween leather for Bronze models. Croc printed leather for Steel models

Buckle: Deployant Clasp

Warranty: 1 Year

"Groundbreaking"

Oh please. :scratch:

I'd respect these kinds of brands more without the empty buzzwords.

Not a bad looking watch, decently priced. I will fully agree on the useless buzzwords for sure. And I don't recall Bronze being so precious a material either.

Those Zelos watches state "Swiss Made."

Having Swiss movements doesn't mean they're Swiss made.

I call bullshit. I think this is a good candidate for that FH thread.

Anyone have any experience with Zelo?

I am somewhat leery of kickstarter projects

I bought a Zelos but it was used from WUS. They have been around a little while and have produced several models so there is a bit of a track record. I don't have any idea what their customer service reputation is though. I would be somewhat less hesitant to trust a company that has actually produced before than a brand new one which has yet to deliver anything.

The dial MUST say SWISS MOVEMENT, not a shortened version.

Dear Alain,

Thank you for your message and your wishes. I hope you had a good start into
the new year, I wish you and your family all the best in 2018!

We will have a closer look at this brand and the markings on the watches
which refer to Switzerland.

Kind regards
Yves
