ZRC GF300 1964 Spirit VINTAGE

This beauty is the new 1964 Spirit Vintage from ZRC. The watch is based on the 2015 GF300 Re-Edition watch revived from the 1960s.

It has many of the same aesthetic and functional features as that watch; such as its characteristically wide hands as well as its specialist diver’s features like the patented ESC system found on its bezel.

Typically when a watchmaker is going for an authentic vintage look, they will use aged-look lume for the hands and markers which ZRC have done here in an old-radium color like you might expect to find on an original piece that had survived from the 60s.

However they haven’t stopped at the hands and markers, they have continued the vintage theme by giving the watch’s black dial a stunning faded effect which really helps to evoke a feeling of the passing of many decades.

Above the aged dial is 4mm thick box-shaped Sapphire crystal, another vintage inspired feature of the watch that helps to distinguish it from the more contemporary 2015 GF300.

The 1964 Spirit Vintage has three different looks – you could chose from a high-tech ZRC extendable divers bracelet, an aged brown leather band or Nylon military style strap.

The new ZRC 1964 Spirit Vintage offers a nostalgic peek through a window of time while retaining all the reliability and functionality of the cutting-edge tool watch.

Personally, I absolutely love it and would go for the Nylon strap as I already have a 2015 Re-Edition on a bracelet. How about you – leather, nylon or steel???
