Evidently Zinex has received some pressure regarding its name from another company for trademark issues. They will be changing their name and their website will be changing. Here is a link to Y3 with more detail as well as other needed info...

Wow..THAT is really something else ! Interesting news from Y3... Icon_eek It's odd because Zinex was and is it's
own company, who have their own theme ! Most people who are into watches,
especially dive watches know about them. They would not confuse them, and I
don't think others would confuse them with another company. I know something
happened like this with Steinhart having to change their name to Debaufre before.
However, I think if a watch company honestly has an original name, that is not the
same as another company..then it should be OK ! Interesting news from Y3... Icon_smile

So who is the company that's putting the pressure on?

In the initial post it says they were contacted by a well-known watch conglomerate. Could be Zenith which depending on pronunciation sounds vaguely similar.
