We’ve been noticing the increased interest in Watchstar and specifically the requests for the Zen Master. It’s taking some real effort but we have located a few factory fresh and are thrilled to present them for you! Inspired by the Enso, translated as Circle of Togetherness and is a manifestation of the moment, an expression of individuality, the 47mm Zen case is built in 316L steel and ergonomically designed to fit the human wrist, so you may rightly expect a comfort level not usually associated with the larger builds. The crystal is thick chamfered sapphire, glare resistance treated, and secured in a beveled bezel design. Signature elements include the colorful baked enamels which are applied to the exterior sides of the watchcase, enameled dial with round phosphor-filled prong-set hour markers. The baked enamels are cured by an external infrared heat unit. Thermal energy activates the internal catalysts, enabling the enamel to cure at peak performance. The result is a superior durable coating that endures environmental conditions. Depending on color selection you may find the steel case treated with either PVD black or rose gold layering. The movement is a skeletonized and decorated 21 jewel mechanical automatic with a power reserve of 40 hours. The custom multi-level dial features large luminous markers and the hands are treated with luminous material as well. The finished work is presented on leather (recommend for 8.5” or less wrist) with a beautiful custom single deployant clasp. The finished work is tested to 10 ATM water resistance.
This is one helluva deal on a watch with real attitude. Many of you already know the brand and their aggressive design in watch production. With this offer we think prior records will be shattered. This Swiss made watch design, entirely in mirrored 316L steel, contains two separate custom designed cases, the largest of which is 33mm. Both case contain Swiss Ronda quartz movements, the larger being a chronograph. The are suspended between two “pipes” modeled after exhaust system pipes of a performance bikes, with both crystals being SAPPHIRE. The areal view is designed after the taper of a motorcycle gas tank while the shape of the cases are inspired by performance gauges. The dials are textured. Rather than the signature winged eye logo appearing on the dial it has been moved to the custom buckle. The completed build measures 44mm east/west to the leather edge, and measure tip to tip north/south it comes out to 64MM, NOT including the leather! This makes a powerhouse presence on the wrist! The smaller case is on a pivot so to reverse to either a deeply sculpted back illustrating a skull and crossbones, or a secondary time zone, at the wearer’s discretion.
The Watchstar Superstar model takes its initial inspiration from the angles and shapes found in the stealth fighter. Note the triangular and “V” shapes found throughout the 49mm 316L steel case. Of course the designer (the same mind that created the original XOSkeleton) went well beyond with the addition of custom hexagonal screws and of course the deep mirror polish on both case and sculpted crown. This work literally flashes on the wrist. Speaking of which, this case is specifically engineered with ergonomic design to fit the human wrist. The custom created 24mm 9” silicon strap carries over the angles taken from the stealth fighter inspiration. A key feature that is both collectible and luxurious is that the white example is finished in PLATINUM. To our knowledge this is the only XOS to have this, and it's important to share that we have confirmed this build will not be repeated, making it immediately collectible.
Following our record setting Renato show (with part II coming next week). of course we had to find a related deal of the day. This 46mm Calibre Robusta is built from 316L steel. It is constructed of components created during the brand’s first heyday several years ago, but assembled in the last couple of months by the new owner. The multi-piece case contains a Swiss quartz movement, providing quick set date at the 3 position and small seconds at the 6. with select area of both case and dial finished in 18k rose gold. Both hands and markers are luminous treated. The back is decorated and hand set with screws on the corner, and the dial assembly is protected by a scratch resistant sapphire coated mineral crystal. We should point out is that this is an opportunity to own the SOLID LINK BRACELET build at a huge discount. Note that it includes the dual deployant clasp for which Renato is known.

One of the most iconic Invicta builds over the years is the Subaqua series, and this is one of the more recent incarnations. The 51mm case is built of 316L steel and finished in gunmetal color. Both crown and pushers are complex builds, with accent color coordinating gaskets seen through the latticework of the design; in this instance the color is a candy apple red. The dial is multilayered with the halos of the subdials having particular sculpted interest. Both the custom hands and large hour markers installed on the outer track are luminous, with the ensemble being protected by a flame fusion mineral crystal. A key focal point of this piece is the sculpted unidirectional bezel, which also contains luminous treated stations. The case contains the Swiss ETA G10 quartz chronograph movement.
Those of you who go back to the beginning of watches on video retail may recall the term “new old stock”, as it was featured in most shows. For those who may not know, the term refers to finding older builds of watches or clocks, BUT in unsold/unworn condition. They’re a treat to find and usually discovered in quantity of one or two due to the parameters. But on rare occasion, a larger find comes along, which brings us to this opportunity.Some time ago Bulova built a series of miniature mantle/desk clocks called “mini boutique”. The series was snapped up and is most often off the market with the occasional exception, much less in “new old stock” condition. This one is circa 1993 – 1994, named the Gold Clock B0530, which featured a gold tone polished metal frame. The lens is glass and as you can see the clock assembly is suspended with the arch. Below is a plaque suitable for engraving. This is presented in the original packaging as well.
