For a quicker response please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org thank you!
@Stephane Glad you liked them both, sorry to about the fedex mishap with the missing watches!
@ Duncan Around 15s a day is within spec for the Sellita movements, but please do email me if timekeeping does not keep up
@Red I've got them in stock but have been too busy to list them for sale, but will do it asap! I'm afraid there's no plans for such a bronze buckle though, sorry!
@Jeremiah Have prepared the replacement to be sent!
Received both my V2 and my G2, and they look superb, even better than on the photos. Great job, and great communication from the team.
I received my V2 a white ago and the way it's patinated is absolutely beautiful. However, I've had a problem with my watch running extremely fast. It runs around 15-20 sec/day fast. What can I do to fix this?
what about the additional straps for the Zelos online shop mentioned earlier?
Also, are there any plans concerning a 20 mm Zelos bronze buckle like the 22 mm one in the online shop?
I received my V1 a couple of weeks ago and have been wearing it since.
Recently I noticed that the watch would stop abruptly, and now it's reached the point where it won't move at all.
Would you happen to have any idea what I could do to rectify this?
Hey Matt, it does come with 1 buckle per watch so you'll have to swap it over. Hope you like it!
Ah my confusion arose from the brown strap having an easy spring at the end, whilst the black one with the clasp attached does not. So using a spring tool I was able to change it.
Sorry I'm a little confused, I have two obrown horween leather straps (one for each watch I ordered), but no buckles... What am I supposed to attach the other end to now? Did I miss something? Thanks.
Sorry about the disappointment! I think the dent between the bezel and the case that you might be referring to is a design aspect which allows us to remove the bezel from the case. Please email me with some pictures at email@example.com and i'll help you out!
I'm afraid I only have one length for this, but you could try punching another hole in the strap to help it fit better. Cheers!
Thank you for creating such a work of art, I really love the V2.
However, I appreciate that the factory must have been tasked with rushing out the pieces as soon as it could, leaving my particular copy with a Long and deep horizontal dent on the bezel where it meets the case near the top lugs, and on the case itself with an indent near the inner lug on the bottom right. For the money I would have expected they performed better QC as it is really obvious... How can we resolve this? Thank you and am looking forward to back your next creation!
Thank you for the swift and helpful reply. I finally got the hang of the watch! One final question. The black strap was perfectly sized for my small wrist. I was able to wear it in the second hole. However with the horween leather, even when wearing it in the first hole, it's still just too loose. Would need one more hole to fit perfectly. Do you have such a strap available?
The helmsman 2 does come with the same bronze buckle as the hammerhead as its a diver style. I chose this range of pieces to use a deployant as it fits the dressier style, but let me explore more options for a bronze buckle. Cheers!
Oh my.... i sure hope my Helmsman 2 watch comes with a bronze clasp...
Sorry about the flaw, I will replace the piece for you asap
The tracking for this takes a while sorry, as Russian orders have to be sent separately via registered post and this takes longer to process than regular FedEx orders. The watch has been shipped and tracking will be sent by Monday. Thanks for the patience!
hi, Elshan, I still waiting for my tracking number. It's weird what I must beg for things which I had to get by default.
My watch looks quite nice, but there's a minor flaws with the dial: on the black outer ring on the V2, there's a small ding. It's the kind of thing that sticks out once you notice it. I was hoping we could arrange an exchange. Thanks!
I am the French backer who bought the bronze buckle and I have to second this. The deployant clasp is e real weakness on this watch. I understannd that it is not easy to produce a buckle, but you could maybe help us to find a bronze buckle with a matching colour?
It's a shame that you don't have any solution for a bronze buckle especially many backers have made the same remark about this PVD coated deployant....
When someone buy a bronze watch, it's mainly for the future patina that will take the case. In our case we will keep a full glossy deployant with a patinated case. You can understand that it will not be very pleasant and in this configuration we must keep the case also glossy. But it's not what I want and I not alone in this case...
A french backer buy a bronze buckle but as you can see the color is very different with the case... http://lallement.com/Montres/gallery/image.php…
@Artem Russian orders were shipped via registered post so it might take a few more days to reach
@Gary I hope the video helps! The color isn't really a fade, its a nature of the leather that it lightens in color when bent. If there are any scratches on the leather, just give it a rub or some leather oil will also darken the leather if you prefer that look.
@WK666 I'm sorry about the buckle but we do not have any plans to produce the buckle in bronze. Once the deployant buckle is installed it works well to extend the life of the strap too.
@Zhe I will send a replacement right away for this
I got my V1 in late September and have been wearing it for a couple of weeks. I noticed there was a problem where the watch would randomly stop for an hour or so, this happens even when I'm wearing the watch. I would put on my watch in the morning (still running) and then head out for the day, but by lunch time the watch would be about 75 minutes slow.
I've had this happen 4 times now and was wondering if there is anything I can do to fix this issue. Thanks!
Dear Elshan. Just a little message to say how this V2 is beautifull. However and as some backers have already said, the Deployment Butterfly is awful and the difference of color with the future patina of the watch won't arrange this sensation. Some french backer try to find a simple bronze buckle on the net but the color is more yellow as the bronze of the watch. So do you intend to manufacture some bronze buckle with the same color of the watch or do you know where we could find a such buckle please???
By comparaison I love my Ventus watch with its brass buckle in the same metal and color as the case but for the moment can't wear my V2 because of a matter of deployment butterfly... :cry:
@Steven thanks! Do you guys notice that the horween brown leather fades really fast? I had it for 1 day and the brown is turning white on the brown leather strap.
Watch is awesome. Took a second on the clasp but now it’s the easiest thing ever. Good job you guys!
@Gary&@Candy you have to pull the clasp open adjust the strap to the hole.You may refer the youtube link below to help you visualise how to fit in.
I have received my watches. Thanks.. they look good.
But I seriously HATE the watch strap buckle. I fiddled it very long time trying to wear the watch. How's the video guide on handling the buckle?
Seriously, I HATE THE WATCH BUCKLE!!!
i got the watch but couldn't wear it as I have no idea how to operate the clasp. Anyone can help with that ?
Any information when I should expect my watch in Russia?
I would suggest using national post or EMS for shipping as Fedex does not accept international packages for import to Russia.
@Julian To remove the buckle from the black strap you'll have to use a small pin or needle to press the springbar out from the black strap. Hope this helps!
@kr sorry about the mixup, it will be resent right away by DHL
@Bas Glad you like the watch! Don't worry about the questions and feel free to ask away!
1) You'll have to pull it out further for the time adjustment
2) Yes the date will have to be corrected every month
3) Its a friction lock meaning you'll have to pull it apart using a bit of force
4) To remove the buckle from the black strap you could use any sharp object like a needle or pin.
Hope these answers help!
I just received my watch and it looks great! This is my first high quality watch and I have some questions I feel quite dumb having to ask.
1. How do I set the time? When I pull the crown and turn it this only changes day indication.
2. How does a day indication work? Should I correct it every month as I image it will always count to 31 before starting at 1 again?
3. How does the buckle work? I have fiddled around quite a bit but I can't seem to open it. Am I missing buttons I have to press so that it springs open?
4. Do I require a spring tool to remove the buckle from the strap? I was able to remove the straps from the watch case using a small spring on the straps. However this spring is not present on the end connecting the strap to the buckle.
These are coming groom Singapore via FedEx, I was quite clear about what would happen if they used FedEx so mine is going right back to Singapore
thanks Elshan, got the watch happy! just one question the end of the horrowitz top strap, what/how do i add a buckle to the top of the horrowitz strap? i cant remove the buckle from the original leather straps!
Beautiful watches. Received mine last week. Felt like the strap was an aptitude test and I failed. Took me a while to realize there is a small clasp connecting the strap pin to it's ceiling allowing you to open on a hinge and feed the strap through.
@Garry The buckle width is 18mm, hope this helps!
@Chan Le You Yours will be going out on Mon/Tues as we received the survey info after the processing of labels, sorry about the wait!
@Julian According to the tracking its just been delivered, hope you like the watch!
@Nhat Yours will be going out on monday as it has to be processed apart from the usual batch, thanks!
@Kerry I'm checking on the tracking for this, sorry about the wait!
Same here local backer. Still no sign of my watch :((
Yes I am local backer as well. Got an inbox message of sending out the package last week, however not received yet, is there anything I can do to track if everything's ok?
Local backer as well, haven heard anything either.. any cause for concern?
Local backer here, haven't received or heard anything yet. should I be worried?
@creator Wanted to order additional deployment clasp for the leather strap, may I know the correct size to buy? The lug width is 20mm but the buckle width is smaller by a couple mm, so what size should we go for??
The crown is made of bronze as well, just that it might have started a bit earlier with the patina due to the QC process where the crown is operated. The colors will even out in a short while once the whole case starts to patina too!
@Gavin All watches come with the SS clasp only and there is no bronze buckle for this model
@Laurent We have received the stock for those bands and will be listing on the site once the shipping for the watches have all been settled :)
Received my V2 also. The clasp is abit hard to open initially, but i think after a while i’ll get used to it.
I second the question about the crown. The color is different from the case. Is it bronze or pvd ss? It’s different from campaign photo, where it has the same patina as the case.
Nevertheless, it is a beautiful watch and it’s worth the wait
I have just received my V2 watch.It is a stunning beautiful timepiece.Love the bronze case starting to patina.The crown is abit different to turn when setting the time.It will be great if there is lume on the chapter ring markers and hour and mintues hands.I'm trying to figure out how the butterfly clasp working.The size is great for Asian arm wrist.Overall I'm satisfy for this watch since this is my 1st Zelos.I will be looking forward for next campaign.
Like my watch, took me a minute to figure out the clasp, but it’s all good now. However, I’m very much looking forward to that carbon fibre band seen on a couple of campaign pics. Any news on that ?
I just received my V2. Is there supposed to be a Bronze buckle + the rose gold butterfly clasp ?
Hello, I received my V2. It is amazing. Just a question, is the crown also made of bronze? The color is slightly different than the case.
Hello Elshan I'm local backer.Today the SF delivery man called me while I happened not at home.I have inform him pls delivery tomorrow as I will be at home.If tomorrow they don't delivery who should I look for?Thank you.
Sorry about the issue! I'll send over a new one right away. Will send you a message regarding this. Thanks!
@Brian Callan that is exactly why i told these guys if it came via fedex it would be refused
What is the process... my watch keeps stopping as I spoke about earlier.... The second hand stalls when it comes in contact with the minute hand... Please advise...
Go all who are happy that they had no extra costs via FedEx, sorry to be the bearer of bad news but Fedex method of operating is to deliver and then post out an invoice about 14 days later for the charges and fees. It's coming, have no doubt, they will want their little pile of extortion
