Zinvo Blade Watch Review

Hands on Watch Reviews Zinvo

 

**Update 9/4/2018 **
In a previous update, we mentioned that there were many complaints about the Zinvo Company. Zinvo reached out and asked if we could convey that they have hired a customer service team and are working hard to improve service. So, there you go. That is what the company has told me. As far as anything else, I still say do your research before you buy this or any product. Watcheport is in no way affiliated with Zinvo and is only conveying their message.

Now this is a brand I truly had not heard of and was actually brought up to us on another video review by a YouTube subscriber. So, first things first, shout out to Bonnermanvideos on YouTube for asking us if we were going to be reviewing this model and for bringing it to our attention.

With that out of the way, Zinvo is a brand that is based in Boston, MA with watches produced and assembled in Asia while sourcing parts from around the world. All watches are shipped from Boston, MA. The Blade is one of 3 models that Zinvo produces and their most expensive model to date. That is somewhat of an ironic statement seeing that this watch is the most expensive at $199. What makes this watch stand out would be the 1-second turbine, as Zinvo calls it. It is a disk that sits above the hands on the dial, and replaces your normal second hand.

For a better look at this, please see my video review here:

Zinvo Blade Watch Review

As I touched on in the video, the Zinvo Blade is certainly unique, but a little impractical, especially to accurately tell time. Zinvo was trying to do something different, and keep it affordable, and I think he did just that. Many watches that we enthusiasts buy are with fashion in mind and this Blade is certainly one that can be considered fashion-forward, and definitely unique.

I've been an avid watch lover since the age of 7. Watches are not only my hobby but a passion. My favorite style used to be dive watches, but field or non bezel watches have been growing on me. When I'm not reviewing watches I am either cooking or with family and friends.

  1. I placed an order with Zinvo on the 18th of June. I have yet to receive any shipping confirmation. I’ve been doing a lot of reading on this company and have been seeing a lot of not so good stuff. I have spoken to at least a dozen people who have placed orders with Zinvo over a month ago and have yet to receive their watches nor even a shipping confirmation. Many have said they have reached out and demanded a refund and have been ignored. I hope this is not going to be the deal with me.

    • I ordered a watch end of July and I still have not got anything. The company is scam! They are not willing to give me any details. I have asked countless times for my money back and nothing has come of it. They need to be shut down!!!

    • Dear Matt, just ordered my zinvo watch 2days ago and havnt received any update as well. Did you receive your watch?

    • This company appears to be a SCAM. I placed an order on December 1, 2020, that was supposed to ship within 48 business hours, two weeks later it hasn’t even shipped.
      Emails are ignored, phone number on the website goes to a voice mailbox that hasn’t been set up, and the phone number on the google listing gets forwarded to another voicemail without even a company greeting, and even the Chat feature on the website is ignored.

  2. The worst company I have ever dealt with. I have ordered my watch last December and I ended up waiting for 3 month after countless useless emails back and forth to only receive the WRONG WATCH!…

    It is now almost the end of july and not only did they not send me the correct watch back, or give me a proper answer on the shipping label to send back the wrong watch. They actually had the nerve to tell me to send everything to their office and cover the costs myself. We have had a total of 83 emails between us with false promises from their side from their two representatives “Maria” and “Julie” and there never seems to be any management involvement.

    I would not suggest anybody to deal with this horrible company and their horrible customer service. The watch itself isnt even worth it,

    • Very interesting that you mentioned the representative “Julie”. I am dealing with a similar issue now where I have paid for the watch, but I have not received any sort of status after 2.5 weeks. I requested that the order be cancelled due to the delay, but the only response I received from “Julie” is that my request was forwarded to their management team.

      Now I am beginning to be more nervous after hearing your experience dealing with the company. We’ll see what happens…

      • Julie, does nothing apart from send the same email.
        The “non existent” management team is just a delay tactic. Speak to your bank and get a refund as the watch will not turn up.
        Its been over 3 months for me and nothing…….

  5. I’ve asked to have my order cancel and to get a REFUND of my money. It been over a month and was told that my request was being forwarded to management and they NEVER got in touch with me. And that I got a email saying that my order has been shipped a month later when I requested to be cancel.
    Now it’s been over months and I’m still waiting on how to return and for a shipping label; this is by far the WORST CUSTOMER SERVICE I’ve ever DEALT with. They don’t have a number to call even when I requested a number to call, but instead dealing with all this by email.

  9. ZINVO, where is my watch #12805????

  10. After some delay in customs, I finally received the Zinvo Blade. However, after several weeks of using, Please DO NOT BUY this watch. 5he self power by movement mechanism didn’t work properly and my watch did not point to the exact time and oftrn die at times. Even when it is on my wrist the whole time and I keep winding it every 3 hours or so. Totally not worth it.
