Who doesn’t like a little glow in their lives? I think that may be what Ziiiro is hoping for with the release of the Metalic version of the Ziiiro Eclipse. The updated version offers one completely new color and new stainless mesh straps on their two hand watch which uses a ring of lume to illuminate the time, and a bit of your night life.
The watch itself is a pretty basic quartz two hander, with a luminous ring around the outside acting as a chapter ring, and two stub hands over that, a luminous one for minutes and a black one for the hours. There are no other markings, so precision timing may not be the forte of the watch, but it is more that adequate for giving you the time down to a few minutes +/-. The engine of the watch is a reliable Miyota 2025 quartz movement, and the glow comes courtesy of the Swiss SuperLuminova brand.
The watch is available in five variations with the metal mesh bracelet, as well as the three version of the original silicon strap. The stainless, gunmetal PVD and black PVD cases (the latter with blue or red lume) on the mesh bracelet are £169 (~$260), and the rose gold PVD with gold lume is £179. The silicon versions are £149. Overall, I think it is a fun and attractive watch that looks to be targeted at a younger crowd, and this is a good thing. ziiiro.com
