The Mirage 2represents the pinnacle of the company’s capabilities, and is a limited edition run of 25 or 50 pieces per variant.

The first Mirage Tourbillon was a runaway success, with all pieces sellingout in less than 10 minutes.The Mirage series exudes rarity and class, paying respects to the origins of Zelos, incorporating the spirit of engineering with exotic materials.

It is an accessible Swiss 8 day Skeleton, boasting many features far above its price tier.

Mirage2 Key Features:

Movement: The Mirage2features a customised Manufacture La Joux-Perret skeletonised 8 day twin barrel movement.The twin barrels responsible for the exceptional 8 days power reserve are visible through the sapphire dial and sapphire caseback. These barrels feature a ‘turbine’skeletonization, much like a jet engine.

Sub dials feature a power reserve indication and sub second hand at 6 o’clock. The movement is fully decorated, complete with black PVD main plates and a curved-grain pattern.

Crystals: A standard that you should expect with all Zelos watches,The Mirage features a front sapphire crystal for maximum visibility. The display caseback is also made of sapphire crystal, and both frontand rear crystals have anti-reflective coatings applied to the underside.

The Mirage8 days boasts an incredibly breathtaking “invisible” sapphire crystal dial. This creates a floating effect on the hands, indices,and subdials, which seem to be levitating in the middle of the watch without supports of any kind.

Indices are filled with the highest grade Swiss Superluminova BGW9 for an incredible glow that Zelos has become known for.

Only sapphire crystal dials that have passed Zelos’ rigorous quality checks are used, ensuring the end product is nothing short of perfection.The sapphire dial and the accompanying floating effect it produces is an optical phenomenon, reminiscent of the original Latin meaning of the wordMirage: To Look at, to wonder at.

Case Material

Four case options are available:

Titanium: This case material is exquisitely finished with alternating brushed and sandblasted surfaces, providing depth and complexity. It is sleek and inconspicuous, creating an impeccable monochrome outfit for the wrist.This variant features a full titanium5-link braceleti ncluded in the package. Both the case and bracelet have been hardened to 1200 vickers for scratch resistance, over 5 times harderthan regular titanium.

Zirconium-Ti Damascus:  Zelos was the first watch company to feature a timepiece made fromTitanium  Damascus. Once again, Zelos is the first to produce a full watch case from Zirc/Ti Damascus. Damascus refers to the forging of two separate materials to create a beautiful pattern. Zirconium and Titanium layers are welded, repeatedly folded and forged to obtain a wave-like woodgrain pattern.To obtain its unique colors, each case Is hand-torched by the founder of Zelos. It is extremely lightweight, is non-magnetic, and corrosion resistant. Zirc/Ti forging is a gorgeous fusion of old-world metal working with modern day technology.

There are two colour variants available for The Mirage.The blue Zirc/Ti comprises of stunning blue(Ti) and black(Zirconium), appearing almost iridescent under certain lighting conditions, complementing the rich, deep blacks.This is achieved through a higher temperature.

The yellowZirc/Ti has alternate streaks of dark grey Zirconium and pale bronze Titanium.It exudes a certain flamboyant warmth from a lower heating temperature.

Tantalum: Tantalum is a rare and dense metal commonly used in capacitors or medical applications.It is extremely corrosion resistant and hypoallergenic, with an understated blueish grey hue. Tantalum is rarely used in timepieces and usually priced at a huge premium over steel due to the cost of raw material and the difficulty in machining.

Sapphire: The full Sapphire case of the Mirage is a sight to behold, offering a full view of the skeletonised 8 day movement. Extremely hard and practically scratch proof,it requires diamond tipped cutters and hours of polishing to produce this incredible case.The Mirage Sapphire is a fraction of the price of many other full sapphire timepieces and creates a statement on your wrist.
