Sizing Up The ZINVO Rival
Among the ZINVO line-up of fashion forward watches is the Rival men’s wristwatch. A seamless blend of elegance and a sporty attitude, the ZINVO Rival is a versatile piece that can be enjoyed every day.
The Rival timepiece dons a robust 44mm stainless steel case—perfectly suited for men who prefer the oversized look but seek a comfortable fit. The steel metal of the watch case is treated with a brushed finish for a look that’s right on-trend and outfitted with a winding crown that’s reminiscent of a car tire. Topping off the case of the Rival is a bezel featuring a cutout design, in addition to six exposed screws. Rounding out the toughness of ZINVO Rival is the black rubber strap that can withstand the harshest of conditions. Plus, the Rival is waterproof to 330 feet (100 meters).
On the dial of the Rival watch sits the trio of center hands, a circular date window at 3 o’clock, and a 24-hour indicator at 9 o’clock. The stick hour markers on the dial are accented with Arabic numeral ones at 3, 6, 9, and 12 o’clock for an interesting design mix. All indexes are coated with luminescent material, hence providing optimal legibility, even in low light. The gray dial is highlighted with a black concentric pattern for a dynamic touch, while the face of the watch is protected by scratchproof sapphire crystal.
Driving the functions of the ZINVO Rival men’s watch is an automatic mechanical movement with over 40 hours of power reserve. Therefore, the Rival will continue to run as long as it’s worn with the natural motion of the wrist powering the watch caliber within. And, if the watch is left unworn, it will continue to run for over a day and a half before running out of power. What’s more, the inner workings the Rival can be admired through the exhibition caseback when you flip the watch over.
The appeal of the ZINVO Rival is not only its practicality and sturdiness but also its style. The watch is definitely sporty with its rubber strap, large indexes, and exposed screws, yet it maintains an elegant approach too, thanks to its muted color palette. The ZINVO Rival can pair just as well with comfy jeans as it can with a tailored fall trench coat.
The Rival by ZINVO is a reliable everyday watch that can seamlessly go from the office to the airport to weekend adventures and everything in between. Plus, with a very reasonable price point despite its long list of highly coveted watch features — mechanical movement, date and 24-indicator functions, sapphire crystal, and rubber strap — the ZINVO Rival offers unbeatable value. Sensible luxury at its best.
