The Mako Shark: the fastest shark in the world. Smaller and streamlined, it was an ideal image for our latest diver’s watch compared to our previous ‘Hammerhead’ model.
Featuring design cues from the 60s, constructed with modern technology, the Mako Diver is a capable diver’s timepiece. The sapphire crystal has a ‘box’ shape similar to the acrylic crystals of old, without the scratches common with acrylic. A ceramic bezel offers extreme hardness against all the abuse you could throw at it. The watch also features 500m of water resistance to survive any depth you could take it down to.
The dial and bezel is painted for maximum visibility in the dark. A mixture of C3 and BGW9 lume is applied generously across all markings and the crown. The 3D patterns on the dial reflects light beautifully and makes it a joy to behold.
At 40mm in diameter, the watch does not look out of place on a dressier outfit. A short 46mm lug to lug length also ensures a good fit even on smaller wrists.

The sudden and prolific onslaught of microbrands in the watch world is a product of the ingenuity of independent designers that want to do their own thing. Zelos is a great example and they're a Singapore-based watch company captained by Elshan Tang that focuses their design on utilizing special and unusual materials. One of their recent releases – the Zelos Mako 500M Diver – is a perfect example of what a microbrand can produce when they really put their minds to it.
