Zinvo Blade Watch Review

The all stainless steel case is very sporty, with its machined grooves and attached lugs. It reminds me of racecars and the mechanics that service them in the pit. That might have been what he was going for with this design. The crown does not screw down but operates the hands and date just fine.

When speaking of the date, you might be thinking, where? Well, that is what I was talking about with being a little impractical. The watch certainly has its cool factor, but the time telling factor was left on the back burner in my opinion. The seconds or “blade” disk covers up the white hour and minute hand and also makes it difficult to see the date. With the way the disc moves as the seconds counter, it is also hard to have any sense of true accuracy, as you can not really know what time it is down to the minute, let alone second.

The exhibition case back shows off the Miyota 8215 automatic movement, and the outer portion of the case back is very sterile, not filled up with tons of info as most case backs have. Zinvo Blade is engraved into the top of the case back, and the rest is high polished, giving off a sophisticated feel. The top or dial crystal is sapphire for sure, but I do not know if the back is sapphire or mineral.

Of course, there is no lume present on this model, and even if there were, it would be most likely pointless, as it would be hard to see through the disc.

The supplied leather strap is soft, supple and wears great on my 7-½ inch wrist. With a watch of this price and all the other features it has, I was sure the strap was going to be cheap, rough leather. I was surprised, to say the least with this Italian leather with red stitching. While most watches without a fixed or rotating bezel seem to wear larger than their stated specs, I feel the Blade with the seconds’ disk covering most the dial, gives the dial a smaller appearance. So this wears like a true 44mm, if not feels like it is a little smaller.

As I think you can tell, this watch is not exactly for me. But that does not mean I do not like it, or that it is not a fun watch. I think more than anything, it would not be my everyday watch, but maybe something fun to wear every now and then, maybe for a summer party with friends, or when I am going somewhere boring where staring at the watch might keep me amused for a while. :-). In all seriousness, it is a little gimmicky, but the specs are good, especially having a sapphire crystal and Miyota automatic, a racing-inspired case and a very good quality leather strap for the price of $199.

I would love to see this same case and strap on a future model, but with more of a regular dial (sans disk), and possibly a 9015 movement. You can see more of Zinvo and their entire lineup HERE. Thank you to Zinvo for providing the Blade for review. Please leave your comments or questions below.

 

 

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.
