Zelos Abyss 2 Dive Watch

Whether you’re heading into the depths of the ocean, or just doing some desk diving around the office, the Abyss 2 by Zelos is sure to get the job done. Nearly every feature on the Abyss 2 is over-engineered to be the best that it possibly can. Zelos takes the standard dive watch specs (like water resistance, lume, domed crystal, and a sturdy case) and amps them up to the next level.

The Abyss 2’s 43mm case is made from a marine-grade copper-bronze alloy, a material that’s commonly seen in aquatic applications. The material, case design, and helium escape valve allow the watch to obtain its 3000M water resistance rating. No really, you read that right. The Abyss 2 has a water resistance of 3,000M. This is 10 times the amount commonly seen on a dive watch. Let that sink in.

The case will also pick up a patina over time — starting off with a look similar to rose gold, then eventually fading to a rich, golden brown. To increase legibility, they’ve engraved the hour makers extra deeply, allowing several layers of the super-luminous paint to build up. The result is an extra bright and long-lasting glow. The Abyss 2 also features an internal 12-hour rotating bezel that can track an alternate time zone. The dial is protected by a domed sapphire crystal and finished with a lume-treated rotating outer bezel.

The watch stays ticking thanks to an automatic, reliable, Swiss-made Selitta movement. The standard model features the SW-200 movement with second hand, while The Turbine model features the SW-260. In place of a seconds hand is a running-indicator sub dial. And instead of a traditional elongated watch hand, there’s a disc with a propellor on it that rotates as long as the watch is running. It’s a nice design touch that further emphasizes the Abyss 2’s oceanic theme.

While most of the Abyss 2's design calls back to its deep-diver roots, a special edition version of the watch has a dial that's literally out of this world. It's made from the Muonionalusta meteorite, which landed over a million years ago in Sweden. It adds an exotic, one-of-a-kind texture to the watch. The standard configuration of the watch comes in either a black, blue, or green dial as well, with the Turbine version available in black or blue.

This tank of a dive watch is now available for pre-order, due to ship in early December of this year. The watch starts at $569 and goes up to $799 for the meteorite version. You can pick one up at the link below.

Orbitkey Ring, Clip and Strap

Let's face it — carrying keys is cumbersome. That's why you'll find so many products for organizing keys. Orbitkey was one of the first to do it, and to this day their key organizer is one of the best minimalist options out there. But if you think about it, once you've got your keys in order, the weakest link in your keychain is the keyring itself. A traditional split ring is so hard to use, you'd rather set it once and forget it. So what do you do when you need to change up your keychain gear? Orbitkey's answer is their newest project, poised to be the next step forward in carrying your keys more efficiently. It includes a completely reinvented keyring, a highly adaptable carabiner and hook, and a wrist strap for versatility beyond your pockets. It's a trio of excellent designs in and of themselves that creates a system greater than the sum of its parts.

It all starts with the humble keyring. Deceptively simple in its appearance, the Orbitkey Ring actually conceals a patent-pending locking mechanism that opens easily for quick access, but locks securely when you're on the go. It does this using a clever mix of two materials: stainless steel for the outer ring to provide structure and strength, and a polymer core for flexibility and ease of use. You pinch and pull the tab on the polymer inner ring downward, then rotate it to reveal a gap for your keys and other gear to enter through.

For a truly dialed EDC, it isn't enough to just get your keys in order — how you carry them is also important. That's where the next part of the Orbitkey system, the Clip, comes in. It's essentially a refined carabiner with elegant proportions, an enlarged ergonomic polymer gate, and a custom leather fob to allow hot-swapping for multiple configurations using a simple metal slider.

The last part of the new Orbitkey ecosystem is a wrist strap that works like a longer version of the Clip. It comes especially in handy if you like to attach  keys to your bag. The added length and security means you won't have to unclip your keys to unlock your door, and retrieving your keychain from the bottom of your bag becomes much easier. While carrying keys on a wrist strap isn't as popular with guys, it can be repurposed for gear other than keys, like a point-and-shoot camera, too.

Best of all, the gear works seamlessly with each other as a system, including the original Orbitkey key organizers. Get a closer look at how these designs work at the fully funded Kickstarter below, and pick up a few if you're looking to take your minimalist key carry to the next level.
