Zanis & Co is a Canadian watch brand producing a range of watches for both ladies and gentlemen. This month sees that launch of a limited edition watch collection that contains some very special elements – a sliver of the Moon, some Mars rock and .42 carats of diamonds.
The Nuvati aims to combine the splendour of the cosmos with classic elegance and sophistication, this limited edition is the first step is helping to make Zanis & Co a rival to some of the top brands in the watch-making industry.
When we first caught a glimpse of the watches from Zanis & Co, Natasha Godbold (wife of the magazine’s founder) was instantly smitten upon seeing the ladies collection cooing “Ooh, that’s so pretty”, the type of instant attraction that all watch brands want. Natasha, is not the type lady that falls for just any watch, especially when you consider that she’s married to a long-time watch collector and a guru of the luxury industry, so gaining her instant approval was a very positive sign.
Before we talk about the company, let’s take a closer look at the Nuvati collection.
The collection will be limited to 600 watches, with up to 70 diamonds and a cabochon at six o’clock, once the production run has ended, no more will be produced. When we discussed the Nuvati, one of the editorial team asked “How do we know its real space rock?”, well, the Moon and Mars pieces have been GIA batch tested ensuring authenticity.
For our readers not familiar with GIA here’s a little information, ‘Established in 1931, GIA is the world’s foremost authority on diamonds, colored stones, and pearls. A public benefit, non-profit institute, GIA is the leading source of knowledge, standards, and education in gems and jewellery’
The Nuvati is powered by a shock-resistant Swiss-made movement and is water resistant to 10 ATM. The watch style is modern and is ideal for both formal and casual wear, and is complemented by a medical grade silicone strap. There are nine styles in the Nuvati collection, the stainless steel square case watches are available in a variety of colour combinations including black, white, red and pink.
Bob Gilson, co-founder and CEO of Zanis & Co said, “Watch manufacturers around the World are in constant competition to out-do each other with incredible engineering. Our standards are also constantly being raised, to the point where we decided to bring the Nuvati into the marketplace and really push the boundaries in the industry. Each watch in the collection is classy enough to be worn on special of occasions, yet simple enough to be worn daily. It’s a show-stopper and a conversation starter, and wearing one is like carrying a piece of the universe in your pocket.”
About Zanis & Co
When the Toronto based co-founders (John Kanakis and Bob Gilson) got together, they had one simple goal – Be Amazing! They wanted to create timepieces that inspired the people that wore them, caused the wearer to pause for thought and consider the larger picture, not just what they see around them. The initial production of the company’s flagship product, the Vega Watch was completed in July 2013 and the success of this watch has led to the launch of the Nuvati collection. The company aims to produce high-quality affordable luxury timepieces combining both style and fashion with a unique twist.
