Young Swiss watch brand Zahnd & Kormann has launched their newest model, the ZK No. 2 on popular crowd-funding site, Kickstarter.
Offering for an unbeatable price, the ZK No.2 collection offers two different watch models: The Diver watch with date indication and the Diver GMT watch with second time zone and date indication. To equip these Swiss Made timepieces, the brand has chosen Sellita SW 200-1 self-winding caliber for divers and Sellita SW 330-1 self-winding caliber for GMT. Both versions are also available with an option of COSC chronometer certification.
The ZK No.2 watch comes dressed in a stainless steel or in a titanium case measuring 44mm diameter. Lug-to-Lug width of the case is 51mm and thickness is 14.9mm. The watch is also available with Black PVD coated editions.
The compact and extremely robust watch case houses a high-precision self-winding movement manufactured in Switzerland. Both the front glass and transparent case-back are made from scratch resistant sapphire crystal.
Designed to explore ocean depths, both versions of ZK No.2 watch are rated for a water resistance up to 60 ATM (600 meters) and features helium release valve at 9’o clock. The watch incorporates a 120 clicks unidirectional rotating ceramic bezel and a stainless steel screw-down crown.
The ZK No.2 watch boasts a highly readable dial featuring vertical pattern and Super-luminova BG9 (blue) illuminated digits and indexes. Both models feature a classic three hands layout with centre seconds to display the time and a window at 3’o clock to indicate the date. The GMT version has an additional hour hand to indicate second time-zone useful for travelers.
Depends upon the version, each watch comes with a stainless steel or titanium bracelet plus one additional nato strap. Easy release system ensures the quick replacement of straps. Each timepiece carries 5 years of international warranty.
As for the ZK No.1 crowd-funding campaign in 2017, Zahnd & Kormann is planning to raise the money to start the production for ZK No.2 through crowd-funding. Online since 24 January this year, the Kickstarter crowd-funding campaign will enable the backers of the project to pre-order the ZK No.2 watch with highly discounted price.
The special Kickstarter prices for Non-COSC version of ZK No.2 Diver start with 459.00 CHF and ZK No.2 GMT start with 559.00 CHF. For COSC chronometer versions, an additional amount of CHF 100.00 is to be paid.
