ZINVO's Blade series of watches have no interest in the secondhand. As trendsetters in timepiece design and engineering, they forgo tradition in favor of distinction, and replace the 60-second tick stick with a rotating turbine disc fitted over the Blade watch dial. Each second the entire stylized disc takes a clockwise shift.
The darkest, and probably sexiest, member of the Blade family is its Phantom. Black on black on black defines the Phantom aesthetic, beginning with a 44mm black brushed stainless steel case with fluted sides and teardrop-shaped lugs. The watch face, turbine disc, and hour / minute hands are matte black as well, with the exception of the ends of the hands, which promised ZINVO if they let them near a bucket of crimson red paint they'd stick in just the tip. A genuine black Italian leather strap with a carbon fiber pattern and black stitching caps off the Blade Phantom's readiness to accessorize the Batsuit, or any of your own dapper threads.
Blade Phantoms are powered by a Miyota 8215 automatic mechanical movement with a self-winding caliber. It's covered with a scratchproof sapphire crystal on the face side, and an "exhibition caseback" that gives you a full view of the caliber in action on the flip side. The watch is water resistant up to 330'.
At printing, ZINVO was offering the Blade Phantom and carbon fiber-printed band at a $37 discount from the normal retail price of $299. Click here to check the watch out, and get one of your own.
