Why We Love This Watch
As you'd expect from Zelos, the Zelos Horizons GMT V2 Steel Midnight Blue is a highly functional GMT dive watch, extremely well built, with a 200 meter water resistance rating, scratch resistant sapphire glass and sapphire ceramic bezel inserts, the most expensive and strongest X1 grade of Swiss Super-Luminova lume, a better ball-bearing based bi-directional bezel mechanism (vs cheaper spring ring mechanisms,) one of the most desirable Swiss GMT movements, and two sets of 24 hour markings (one on the chapter ring, the other on the bezel) to enable 3 different time zones to be tracked.
The functionality of this stylish tool watch is equally well matched with it's great looks, including a colorful sunburst textured dial with matching bezel featuring two contrasting lume colors, and a dressier 40mm size that is only 11mm tall, excluding the sapphire crystal. The attention to detail is superb, with very nice touches such as a brushed finish with the polished chamfered edge on the case being picked up on the brushed bracelet which also has a polished chamfered edge.
Like many Zelos models, the limited edition size on this v2 GMT is only 100 timepieces, and we expect that, as with other models, it should sell out fairly quickly.
