The weather definitively turned to hot and the sun is hitting so hard that it's almost a migraine inducing brightness outside.
I felt like I was getting cooked and had to get back to the study inside to finish my coffee before I had the chance to rest with the Zelos Horizons on my wrist.
I remarked previously that I found it a bit odd that despite the differences in type, material, dial color, and case style, the Horizons wears very similarly to my SARB017 Alpinist. I think that I found out why, and the reason is the weight distribution on my wrist. Which is surprising since bronze is denser and heavier than steel.
Both the Alpinist and the Horizons are tubby and this tubbiness is even more noticeable with the slightly recessed bezel on the Horizons. They are also roughly the same size with very close L2L distances. This, and the fact that I wear both on straps may be the reason their center of gravity is similar and why they feel the same on my wrist - which is a very good thing.
There is also the possibility that I'm completely mistaken due to a starburst bias, as both watches glitter in a very bold colorful starburst once hit by a ray of sunshine and I'm weak and easily distracted by shinny things.
Whatever the reasons are, I like to wear the bronze Horizons GMT and I still consider it one of my better purchases.
I'm a big fan of watches that are interesting because they are either unique, have interesting features, well designed or simply offer a great value for their price.
