A good watch on your wrist is as important as any other item in your EDC. It should be reliable, built to last, and functional for your needs. Zelos’ update to their popular Hammerhead model improves on an already solid dive watch, making it even better with some thoughtful tweaking. Tested to withstand up to a whopping 1000m of water pressure, this helium-escape valve-loaded dive watch is ready for practically anything you can throw at it. With the Hammerhead 2, Zelos achieved a technological and design first for the watch industry as well, making it a unique and compelling addition to your EDC.

Zelos stood out from other watch brands by using real meteorite in their watch dials. But with the Hammerhead 2, they’ve made the first watch ever to feature a rotating timer bezel made with real meteorite. In addition to the meteorite, the Hammerhead 2 has an impressive set of specs to match. The cushion-shaped 316L Stainless Steel or CUSN8 Bronze case is precision machined for sharp transitions between the case’s angular bevels. The gasket seals, crown design, and helium escape valve will let you take the Hammerhead 2 down to impossible depths of 1000M—able to handle further than you’d ever dive. On the case, you’ll find a mix of brushed and sandblasted finishes, giving it an interesting visual appeal that looks unlike any other watches in the price range. The time is easy to read, thanks to a chunky, yet modern set of hands that are treated with alternating C3 and BGW9 luminous paint – the industry standard for a bright and long lasting glow.

Inside the watch, you’ll find a reliable and affordable Seiko NH-32 movement, or for a slight premium, a higher quality ETA 2892 Swiss movement. Protecting the dial and everything inside, there’s a high domed sapphire crystal that has an inner anti-reflective coating to increase legibility. The 44mm case will have some serious presence on the wrist, but the 48mm lug-to-lug distance keeps the size in check so it won’t overhang on most wrists.

In a sea of bland divers, the Hammerhead 2 really stands out as something new, modern, and different. You can pick up your own Zelos Hammerhead 2 at the link below, starting at a rather reasonable $369, going up to $799 for the fully decked out meteorite version with upgraded movement.
