Equipment Review: Zelos Swordfish (Watch Video)

Published

on

Are you a diver looking for a great wristwatch but not sure what to choose from all of the mainstream brands? Well, look no further; if you want a smart, stylish and robust wristwatch for everyday purposes – yet want to keep that nautical theme – then you need to be checking out the recently released Zelos Swordfish v2.

This full-on diver’s watch has a depth rating of 300m/1000ft, so perfect to accompany you both above and below the water. It even has a cool expansion clasp that allows the stainless steel strap to expand to fit over a wetsuit if you wanted to use it as a timepiece to support you on your dives.

 The Zelos Swordfish arrives in a beautiful wooden box, all safe and secure in a leather watch roll with suede strap.

Inside you will find your Zelos Swordfish watch with stainless steel strap, a vintage effect horween leather strap, and the steel warranty card.

The watch case is 42mm across and 13mm thick, and the watch face is made from sapphire crystal which is much tougher than the more common mineral crystal faces, and virtually impossible to scratch.

The bezel insert has a 120 click rotation which feels strong and firm with no back movement, and has a brushed finish which comes fully lumed – as does the dial. The dial itself is textured and available in many options of colours and finishes.

The crown carries the Zelos logo, but it’s the rear of the watch that really sets it apart from the others with the embossed image of a swordfish – it’s unlike anything we’ve come across before, and looks fantastic!

For more information on the Swordfish range, and to view the Mako, Hammerhead and Great White models, check out Zelos Watches, or for European sales visit Serious Watches.

One thing for sure is you will definitely stand out from the crowd with one of these on your arm!

DiveAlertPLUS: a Dual Function Surface / Subsurface Signalling Device

Published

on

divealertplus

DiveAlertPLUS is a specially designed, small, lightweight pneumatic signalling device that uses quick-connect/disconnect hose couplings to become an integrated part of your power inflator.

It uses a small amount of air from your SCUBA tank to make a piercingly loud sound in air or water. It can be heard a mile away from where the diver in need is above water.

How it works

The DiveAlertPLUS uses chrome-plated brass couplings to attach to your power inflator. Squeezing the device engages the actuator valve stem causing a small amount of air to flutter a stainless steel diaphragm emitting a piercingly loud sound. The subsurface/underwater signal is produced by a percussion “buzzing” noise made by a piston hitting a stainless steel diaphragm much like a drum.
