Zelos Opinions

I saw this watch and I love the dial.  They are sold out and I've only found them on sale used.  Does anyone have any experience with Zelos watches?  Are they worth the price?

I have two (including a variation of the one you are showing).  While I like them, and they are lot of bang for buck, I just can't connect with them.  I cant even explain why, but I wouldn't discourage anyone from getting them.

I'll likely be selling mine.

I have had two, still have one. Mine were very well built, and they are usually a good value, especially if you get in on the early pricing.

I have three Zelos watches - the bronze Swordfish, a teal dial Horizons GMT and my latest, a Spearfish with the burnt orange dial. I feel that the Swordfish and Horizon both represent decent value for the price, and feel like watches befitting their price point. The Spearfish feels much more premium than the price would suggest. It might be just that I love the burnt orange dial so much, but this has become the only sub $1K watch that I wear as part of my regular rotation. The finishing is much better than on my other Zelos, the bracelet is very comfortable, and the clasp features a nice tool-less on the fly micro adjustment. On the timegrapher, results are less than stellar, but on the wrist, it seems to run within 1 SPD. The rotor on the LJP G100 movement can be a bit noisy at times, but not to the point where it would stop me from recommending this watch. I purchased it simply because I loved the dial, and was fully expecting it to be similar to my other Zelos, and thus only seeing very occasional wear. I find myself reaching for it in my watchbox much more frequently than I was expecting.

My wife and I have four Zelos watches between the two of us, and we love them. My advice would be to join the Facebook group, and just wait for them to release a different iteration of the same watch, or a different watch with the same dial.

Very good value for your money. You do get (maybe a bit more) for what you paid for. I have three different watches from them in the $500 range.
