Hot on the heels of the Mako STEEL is this new beauty from Zelos, the Mako Bronze which has been built form CuSn8 bronze.

The Mako is a retro offering with an intriguing design and some recognizable design cues but also with one or two little quirks to keep things interesting.

Take for example the dial with its wave pattern fanning out from the center, the neatly placed date black window at 6 o’clock, the double markers at 3, 6 and 9 and 12, the rows of tiny circular minute markers and the corn-dog seconds indicator.

Then there’s the case which is in CuSn8 Bronze measuring 40mm in diameter with a lug-to-lug length of 46mm and a thickness of 13.5mm.

This is characterized by an elongated crown guard which reaches from the middle to the top.

Divers features include: C3 and BGW9 lume, a unidirectional rotational divers bezel with nicely pronounced teeth and ceramic inlay, an old school box-shaped 2.5mm thick Sapphire crystal, and 500 meters of water-resistance.

The new Zelos Mako Bronze is powered by a Swiss made Sellita SW200 automatic movement.

It has a LAUNCH price of 429USD and which will eventually increase up to around 800USD or so.

Thoughts? Another good-looking diver with a slew of lovely design features to add to portfolio.

My personal pref. is still gonna’ be steel, but I guess Zelos had to answer the demand for a bronze version.
