ZELOS Hammerhead 3.0

ZELOS has just dropped a new hammerhead diver’s model and like its namesake - it’s utilitarian in its design, it loves the ocean and it has big teeth! Zelos first introduced the Hammerhead in 2016; 

it was a diver’s model that had been designed from the ground up yet recalled those funky watches of the 1970s; 

however it was made using the latest in watchmaking technologies. Today Zelos has introduced the third generation of the Hammerhead, which is now slimmer and so even more wearable than before but that’s not all.

With 300 meters of water-resistance and CNC-machined diver’s bezel with nicely pronounced teeth it is a watch that has been designed to handle whatever abuse might be thrown at it above or below the waves. 

It is also even easier to read in the murky depths thanks to refined hands and indexes which allowed Zelos to use even more lume than before.

The Hammerhead with its distinctive cushion-shaped case has also received an angular facelift thanks to new CNC machined facets which have been given alternating finishes to further accentuate all those angles. 

Meanwhile a highly double domed Sapphire crystal tops off the Hammerheads case adding that final vintage touch while an ergonomically-designed oversized, lumed crown (offset for comfort) could even be opened with gloves on.

There are 8 versions of the new Zelos HAMMERHEAD - here are its key updates at a glance: 

*Reduced overall thickness, from over 17.5mm for the V2 to 13.5mm 

*Angular bracelet design reminiscent of the V1 bracelet 

*Quick adjust clasp to allow for easy bracelet length changes 

*Simpler hands and indices for larger and brighter lume area 

*Mixture of sandblasted and brushed surfaces for a rugged presence

Thoughts? Same great watch (which btw I still have a 2016 version of) but with some interesting new design elements such as the alternating brushed and blasted facets and technical enhancements such as increased lume. Which is your favorite?
