Looking for proven quality watch at an inexpensive price? Meet the Blade, a three hand and date watch by the Boston based microbrand, ZINVO. The Blade is ZINVO’s most expensive model to date. And that is somewhat of an ironic statement seeing that this watch being the most expensive comes in at $229. ZINVO’s signature model, the Blade watch boasts a patent-pending dial design where a rotating turbine disc replaces the traditional seconds hand. A men’s watch that stands out from the rest, the ZINVO Blade is made with the young, fashion-forward, and dynamic crowd in mind.
For 2017, ZINVO has unveiled six new Blade models—essentially doubling the collection. The new models take on a bolder approach to an already very distinct and very stylish man’s wristwatch. First, there’s the Blade ENCORE with a gunmetal coated stainless steel case that comes outfitted with a perforated leather strap in a neutral sand color.
This is followed by the Blade CORSA, which sports a matte black coated stainless steel case, red and black turbines, and a black leather strap. Then there’s the Blade NITRO, with a gunmetal coated stainless steel case, blue indexes on the black dial, and a black perforated leather strap with blue stitching.
There are three new Blade models that flash a little more color than what we’ve seen previously in the collection.
For instance, the Blade ETHOS’ gunmetal case houses a sleek gray toned dial accented by a pop of orange on the logo and minute/hour hands. The orange color carries through on the stitching of the gray perforated leather strap.
An even more vibrant model is the Blade BOLD, which as its name suggests, features bold red titanium turbines on the dial along with red stitches on the gray leather strap attached to the gunmetal case. And finally, the most flamboyant of the new models, the Blade MARINE, which sports a chrome steel case, blue turbines, red hands, and a blue leather strap.
