Tips & tricks

When you purchase a watch it might not be exactly as you want it yet. The bracelet can be too long or you might want a different strap altogether. Many of these things you can do yourself! Of course we are always willing to help you (or you could visit a jeweler), but it can be a lot of fun to do these things yourself. To assist you, we've made some YouTube clips.
We're always working on more clips and we'll inform you through Twitter and Facebook whenever a new one becomes available. If you have any questions don't hesitate to contact us, we're always willing to help!

Do note, if you encounter a problem or when in doubt, always ask for help.

High quality dive watch

Surprisingly high quality dive watch for the money, and a nice blue colour. Wears well even on a small wrist. My second purchase from this store and I'm very happy. Service is excellent, fast shipping and international delivery, with package neatly wrapped. Thank you.

Great Patina

Beautiful watch with great Patina

First zelos and first seriouswatches purchase

What can I say....the watch has blown me away.

The design, quality of finishing, luminescence, the packaging are all spot on.

At a smidge over three hundred pounds the zelos swordfish easily competes with more expensive watches in its class.

This review is not only about the watch however.

Really appreciate the speed of service and those extra touches that seriouswatches make to ensure that the whole purchasing experience is special. Loved the waffle lol!

Great touches on details

The watch is gorgeous with its one of the most beautiful sunburst blue dial I've ever seen. It competes with Squale 1521 blue in terms of being vibrant. The watch is very playful and i can see that it'll be great for summer. The applied markers just brings the watch the extra refinement. The case is thin and carefully designed. The customer service is great, where the item includes a free extra nato strap. I got 42/50, so get it while you can!
