The Zelos Skyraider Titanium Skeleton is an incredible aviator watch. The Douglas A-1 Skyraider was one of the last few propeller driven attack aircraft and Zelos used this name as inspiration. The watch is powered by a beautifully decorated, Swiss Made, handwinding ETA 6498-1 movement, which is visible through the caseback window.
As you may suspect from the name of the watch, it's made from lightweight GR5 Titanium, which adds to the comfort of the watch. Grade 5 titanium is also used in aircraft, space and medical industries and is a great balance between wearability, resistance to external influences and weight.
The thing that will catch your eye most is the incredible face of it - or better said: what is left of it. The bridges and components have been painstakingly cut out to reveal the inner workings of the movement. You will be able to see the beat of the escapement and pallet fork, its steady pulse is mesmerizing to watch. This is a truly special movement and finished to a very high standard.
Alongside the fitted Horween Chromexcel Brown leather strap, the watch also comes with a Military Grey Canvas with Horween backing strap. The watch comes with 1, high quality, buckle.
All in all the Skyraider is a high end, unique, special, beautiful and just lovely watch to own and mostly: wear!
