Our first watch from micro brand Zelos, this Chrono Sport 2 is in perfect condition and is number 23 of just 100 made.
HOW DO WE DATE THIS WATCH?
From the credit card sized aluminium guarantee card we can accurately date this watch to being sold in 2017.
The watch is like new, so this is more of a review than a condition report.
The beauty of a microbrand is that you own a watch that you will probably never ever see another on someone else’s wrist. This Zelos is no different, with just 100 made. The case is made from 316L stainless steel, with the bezel PVD coated. The chapter ring is also nicely machined, with cut outs for the hour markers. Learning from the original watch, this second version has lume on the hands and the hour indices. Topping this is an anti reflective coated sapphire crystal. The buckle is also stainless steel and a work of art. The movement is a more workhorse Miyota 21 jewel automatic, but fitted with a PVD coated cut out rotor to show off via the exhibition back. One downside we have found is the branded crown is very hard to grip to set the time – we ended up using brass coated pliers (brass is softer than steel so you don’t damage the crown). It is highly unlikely that a Seiko would leave the design stage with this issue, but then Seiko will sell thousands of the same model.
The watch is presented in a wallet, that is then in a pine box very similar to what G. Gerlach used in the P24 we had. Maybe it is a microbrand thing?
This watch will be supplied with the original presentation box, wallet, tin “papers” and our Certificate of Authenticity.
