WWR Reader and Friend Ben has a Zulu and really likes it. I’ve never really played with it, but this first look seems pretty interesting. Looks considerably more attractive than the older models, that’s for sure.

The Zulu from YES is similar in functions (sunrise/sunset tracking, multiple time zones, etc…), but several orders of magnitude higher in quality (titanium bands, sapphire crystal, presentation case).

In this review, we’ll take a closer look at the details of the Zulu. In other upcoming articles, we’ll look at changing the straps, the various functions, and our impressions after wearing the watch for a while.

  1. I’m pretty sure the older models also had sapphire crystals and presentation cases. Not sure about bands, though, and the only model I have in mind is the worldwatch (which is a very early model).

  2. My biggest problem with these watches has always been the weight — the older model, at least, sits very awkwardly and uncomfortably on my wrist. Build quality has always been very impressive, especially the thickness of gold plating (if you get that model).

    How do the newer models feel on the wrist? Have they managed to make them any thinner than the older ones yet?
