Never heard of this brand until I saw one on the WURW posts - looks nice!
Their website has nice dive watches.
A little pricey though.

What is everyone's feedback and experience?
Accuracy? Lume quality? Worth the price tag?

I've owned three and all are really great looking pieces and of solid quality.



Only kept the Vintage Nitrox II. It was an impulse purchase that almost didn't happen. I'm so glad I did because it's perfect in every way, to me.



Doxa inspired dial that I love because I'm a big fan of Doxa.


It came with the best quality and best looking mesh I ever owned but I had to buy the OEM bracelet.






There's a bunch of them made, 3,000, but you rarely see them come up for sale, which can only be a good thing.



On Kastantona canvas




Lume is very decent on this one.



Not as powerful Lume as the DSR500 GMT



Nor the Lume of Nitrox LS



If you like any Zixen's, I say do it. No brainer.

I'd love to one day get a blue/blue Vintage Nitrox II and other Zixen and Zinex pieces.

Nice!
Question: Orient Sat Diver or this Zixen?
Considering they're almost at the same price point
What's your wrist size? I wouldn't recommend this watch if your wrist is under 7.5 inches. Mine is 8.25 and still wears big because of the lug to lug.

I've had them both....The Orient I still have, and the Zixen went to a new home. Both are nice, but IMO the Orient is mo betta

I've owned a couple of Zixens and they're well made, hefty watches and they look great.

Orient Saturation Diver for me between those 2

I have a Zixen Trimix and an Orient Saturation.

If I could only keep one, it would probably be the Orient.

The Zixen is more of a tool diver and the Orient, while it has all of the specs of a tool diver, has a little more dressy look to me.

You can't go wrong either way.

Which one had the better accuracy?
Orient probably had the brighter lume correct?

I'd rate them very similar on accuracy, but NO comparison on Lume. The Orient is A+ and the Nitrox II was a C-

That black and gold combo on the watch is utter BOSS!!!
Waaay outta my retired locomotive engineers budget.
But still love it from afar.

They're expensive, but they are top end, high quality micros, with great customer service. The lume and accuracy on my Trimix were both excellent. I wouldn't hesitate to get another if I had the money. I don't think anything is better than the OS300 in its price range, or even somewhat higher though.

They are very nice watches with a certain vintage quality to them. I like 'em very much but with the expensive dollar right now a bit out of my usual watch budget.
