A tonneau throwback to the Jazz Age.
Evoking the elegance of early 20th century Art Deco, the Zephyr's slim, retrofuture case dances with light, deftly balancing lines and curves, while its guilloché dial captivates the eye. Classicists will recognize the two-handed movement as an older, purer form of art on the wrist. The clean aesthetic allows the Zephyr's intricate finishes to take center stage.
Though the tonneau case shape is synonymous with formality today, it was worn without pretension in the early 20th century. We’d like to revive that idea—you don’t need a special occasion to dress with class.

In our quest to design a dress watch, we discovered the distinction might be a slight misnomer. In the early era of wristwatches, the great majority of them simply had an aesthetic we would consider dressy today.
The most prominent examples would be the Omega Marine and the LeCoultre Reverso, marketed as the premium sports watches of their time.
Not that we think the concept is outdated! The Zephyr surprised us with its easy versatility, adding a touch of class without ever looking out of place.
The Zephyr’s classic dimensions belie its visual impact. Light ripples from the center of the guilloché-pattern dial in undulating waves. Heat-blued hands paired with the silvery white dial elevate its aesthetic while calling back to vintage design touches that have stood the test of time.
personal & versatile
Each Zephyr includes two 18mm quick-release leather straps, with two options for length (to fit 5.5-6.5 in. wrists, or 6.5-7.5in. wrists). The crimson dial comes with black and espresso straps. Choose the one that suits you at any given moment—no tools needed!
*Variations in tone and color are to be expected with hand-dyed leather. Straps may differ slightly from what is pictured on this page while still falling within the gradient for the hide.
← DESIGN NOTES →
Our mission statement for the Zephyr was to distill everyday elegance into a wristwatch. To do this, we realized we needed to go back to an era before the circle was the ubiquitous shape for a timepiece. We love how the elongated silhouettes of the '20s and '30s exude a sophisticated swagger. You can practically smell the cigar smoke.

Our favorite Jazz Age references, each one an icon in its own right, served as the starting point for the Zephyr's design.

Ticking inside the Zephyr is the 9029, a no-date, two-handed variant of Miyota's 9 series premium automatics.
It offers a combination of thinness, reliability, and accuracy unlike any other movement on the market.
A watch is a companion, a talisman that reflects its wearer's personality, history, and memories. Make your mark with a special message, dedication, or monogram.
