The Zelos Mako 500 may seem like just another dive watch, but its stunning design and modern construction shows just how beautiful and functional dive watches can be. The first thing most people notice about the watch is most likely its distinct bronze case. This case owes its appeal to its marine-grade CuSn8 bronze alloy construction, which begins as a luxurious gold but is built to patina and show age over time. The case is complemented with a box-shaped sapphire crystal that pairs amazingly with the functionality and design of classic diver watches.

These design features of the Zelos Mako 500 harken back to classic dive watch design but under the hood the is where the timepiece shows its modern influence. A modern Sellita SW200 Swiss Movement powers the watch and gives it incredibly reliability and accuracy. The Zelos Mako 500 is automatic and features two straps of waxed leather and Tropic rubber.
