The Zelos Abyss 3
Here to complete the trilogy, with a story originating more than five years ago. The first Abyss was launched in 2015, after a massively successful crowdfunding campaign. The second Abyss was launched in 2018, featuring updates and improvements including a second-time zone function. Now, the Abyss 3 has arrived. Bigger, stronger, better, more robust and more extreme than ever. At its depth rating of 3,000m, where the pressure measures an overwhelming 4,300 pounds per square inch, the Zelos Abyss 3 was built to not just survive, but thrive in the crushing pressure. Solidly built, every inch of this watch exudes a calm strength and resolution. Whether it’s at your desk or on a dive trip, this beast of a watch has your back. The date window at 6 o’clock provides both functionality and form in symmetry, encased in a matching bronze or steel trim. Date wheels are color-matched to the dials as well.
Submarine design elements for the depths of the ocean
The turbine sub-dial at 6 o’clock pays homage to submarine propellers, slowly and almost imperceptibly rotating in position. Additionally, one of the turbine blades is tipped red, allowing it to also function as a second hand. The applied indices are individually cut, ground, and polished before being applied to the dial, contributing to a sense of depth and dimensionality. Twin crowns grace this watch case at the 2 o’clock and 4 o’clock positions, the former being a manual Helium Escape Valve, the latter being the crown that controls the movement. Finally, all the indices, hands, dial, logo, bezel, and even the twin crowns are lumed with Super-LumiNova C3 X1, the brightest lume grade manufactured by Super-LumiNova, making this watch a lume monster. Simultaneously tough yet refined, the Abyss 3 exudes a meticulousness in detail especially in it’s finishing, with it’s alternating brushed and polished surfaces, deeply notched grips on the bezel, and even the signed, skeletonized buckle made from the same material as the case to match. Radiating a quiet strength in composure, the Zelos Abyss 3 is here to complete the trilogy.
