Zelos Horizon GMT

The Zelos Horizon GMT is a gorgeous timepiece that provides great value for money. It is available in many different dials and bezel combinations, including a meteorite dial. Two case materials are also part of the offering: you can choose between a bronze or 316L stainless steel. The date is positioned at 6 o'clock, keeping the symmetry of the dial intact. The hour markers and hands are coated with luminescent C3 SuperLuminova and X1 lume, guaranteeing optimal legibility in all environments. The design of this watch is very much vintage-inspired. It is definitely reminiscent of the 1960's divers, with a vintage-style domed sapphire crystal that is making this watch thicker than the case: the Horizon GMT approximately reaches a thickness of 13mm with the glass.

The bezel insert is bi-directional with 60 clicks and mounted on ball bearings, and is made of sapphire crystal. The proportions of the case are ideal for most wrists: 40mm diameter and 45mm lug to lug. The 20mm lug width offers a lot of choice for alternative straps. Through the sapphire glass case back, you will find the automatic movement ETA 2893 Elaboré at work. This caliber is equipped with a beautifully customized rotor. The signed screw-down crown is another great demonstration of Zelos' attention to detail. The water resistance is 200m so it's a true diver.

We definitely have fallen in love with this watch, which provides quite a bit of value for its $890 retail price. It could be considered as a great affordable Rolex GMT-Master II alternative. Kudos to Zelos for this beautiful creation, if you want to scratch that GMT itch without ruining yourself and avoid models that are too similar to the Rolex GMT-Master II, this watch is worth considering for sure.
