Zelos knows its way around a dive watch, boasting a catalog that is almost entirely focused on making intriguing divers that are both robustly spec’d and aggressively priced. Their latest is an updated version of their Swordfish line, a collection of watches named after one of the fastest fish in the sea. When looking at all that this aggressive 300m diver has to offer, from the distinct design to the overall excellent feature-set, it’s hard not to appreciate the Swordfish V2 and its value. Others seem to agree, as the watch is quickly selling out in many variants.
Speaking of variants, there’s one small thing to note about the watches we’ll be looking at today. The two examples here come with a NH35 movement, a proven workhorse caliber produced by Seiko. Also available (for a surcharge) are versions of this watch with an ETA 2892, with the only significant difference between the two being the addition of a date complication at 6:00 on the ETA variant.
