  • Zinex... Zixen

    I had a Zinex Trimix that I eventually sold. I wish I hadn't but I knew a guy who just 'had to have it' and offered to buy it. Since he was so crazy about it I did let him buy it. Pretty cool watch, but then they changed the name to Zixen. I tried looking them up, but I think they went belly up.....

    I that they had some pretty cool, retro-inspired designs, but they were definitely original. I didn't know they went out of business. :(

        Thanks for the heads up, but I have no funds for watch purchases now or in the immediate future. Too many 'house' things to do here.

          I think if I went Zixen again I'd want the Super Sub. However if they are actually out of business now, so might have to go used!

            What about Aquadive? Very similar look, save for the hidden lugs.

                I like the look of those, but they might be too big and bulky for me.

                  Yeah those Zixen watches are tanks. The Super Sub I really like though and it has hooded lugs.

                        Yeah but that's the 3000M and it's new. Regardless, I have no watch money - it's all house money now.

                            I had this one briefly but it was too big (thick) for me. A lot of watch for the money though. If I recall correctly they had a squabble with another company over the name and that's why the name change occurred.

                              Yeah, not sure what the issue was with the whole name thing... Zinex, and then to Zixen. I found my old Trimix to be a big tank of a watch. I got the Trimix from Rajen (from NYC), and some cash in return for my Sinn U2.
