There seems to be a bit of discussion on whether or not CW can still be classed as a microbrand considering how big they are now, but they鈥檇 get my vote. Another possibility from the UK could be Farer.

Some of the ones mentioned in are higher price point, so expected higher quality. But for around 500$ you can鈥檛 get much better than Zelos in my opinion. The dials are definitely not for everyone, but the build quality and experience overall is well beyond its price point.

ROLEX!

None of the above. They all look like copies of something else without much thought having been put into the design. My vote would go to Anordain, Wise or Moels. Maybe Serica too if they changed their movements.

I read that somewhere about CW may no longer considered as microbrand. I met with Peter France from CW to ask about making a bespoke item or a custom watch for our business partners to mark each milestone in our business, and got to know the brand a bit closer. They are marking it 3x the cost to make the watch鈥ot a bad proposition and reasonable compares to 30x or 300x 馃檪 鈥ut again, i never know about the watch business

I actually have my eye on the zelos blacktip gmt 鈥 read a lot of good things about it. Maybe i鈥檒l pull a trigger if i can still find a brand new one on zelos so i can see the finishing

@Awidiarto I do not think you鈥檒l be disappointed! I for one am extremely impressed with my Zelos Mako V3. It is by far my most worn watch and I have nothing but good things to say about the watch and the brand. I鈥檇 say go for it! Worst case you will most likely be able to recoup your money by selling it if it doesn鈥檛 work for you!

That is true鈥o you find it thick as i notice zelos always have around 12mm or more. I usually prefer around 11mm or so
