Got an email notice a couple days ago.

Looks like they've taken the retro look to the hyper wacky extreme.

Zixen borrows from an older omega case design.looks good to me.I like the heliox better though.Also, pricing keeps going up.If these don't sell out,you'll see them on sale for 999.00.

Agree - Like my Heliox design better.

Just caught a used Nitrox on WUS.
I know the NItrox isn't your favorite Zinex but I fell in love at first sight - after they were all gone.
Can't wait for it to arrive.

Have to admit I like this Zixen Jaw ! Zixen DSR500 Hydromatic - PreOrders Open Icon_smile I think it takes a vintage
look which is very cool, and updates it. The thickness, and overall
size look REALLY good. The thickness of that chapter ring is nice
too because it makes the dial look that much deeper. Also like the
hands, and the different colors used on them. Hey, and how about
that mesh bracelet ?! Zixen DSR500 Hydromatic - PreOrders Open 803574 ..Thanks for the links, and info ! There
really are alot of different variations to choose from !

I'll give Joe credit there are no divers that look like his on the market right now that I know of. Overall I think they look better in person than in pics as well. I had a Trimix and some of the images I saw before ordering made me think it was on the clownish side but in person I was suprised to see that it was a very professional looking and feeling piece. I like this one.

Like the RETRO luck and glad its not the same case 10 other makers are using...

Pretty Pricing...$750 seems a more realistic number for a Micro Brand...
