By TLex It's the last watch of the year, folks and it's a real belter! Introducing the Abyss 3000m Bronze from Zelos Watches. Constructed from marine grade bronze, the Abyss comes hot on the heels of Zelos' successful bronze debut diver, the HELMSMAN.
Its 43mm case has been constructed from CuSn8 Bronze. It has a lug-to-lug measurement of 51.5mm makes it extremely wearable and a thickness of 18mm, which is pretty reasonable considering its water-resistance. The case is brushed with polished edges and DLC sandblasted crowns.

Divers features include: Stainless steel screwdown crown and caseback, a 120-click type unidirectional rotational divers bezel in solid Marine Bronze with engraved dive-time scale and luminous 12hr marker, an internal rotional bezel (operable via the crown at 2 o'clock) -
a function rarely seen fitted to deep divers - it provides additional timing functionality if required. without the risk of being accidentally turned. The external bezel is also available in black DLC to match the crowns.
Each of the Abyss' crowns have 5 gaskets to ensure a waterproof seal, while a double O-ring system seals its hefty 4mm thick Stainless steel screwdown caseback. Abyss' water-resistance was tested in-house.
The dial which can be had in 4 distinctive colors, which include: black, blue, brown and green is fitted with BGW9 Superluminova hands and applied hour markers.
The Abyss is powered by a 24 jewel Japanese made Miyota 9015 automatic movement. A total of 500 pieces be individually numbered will be produced.
