Animal Watches - Introducing Z42

Z42 Marine
Hypo-allergenic nitrile rubber strap: £130

The Animal watch story began way back in 1987, when two surfers designed an innovative hook and loop strap that was able to withstand pumping waves. Rugged and functional, the strap quickly gained followers amongst like-minded adventure seekers and an icon was born.

Seven years later we were at the forefront once again, introducing 316L marine-grade stainless steel cases and screwdown crowns to the industry, employing the same watertight seal as a submarine hatch.

Today we remain just as committed to engineering watches for the great outdoors and we still design them here in the UK. It’s about creating a product that is beautiful yet functional; these are watches to be worn day-in day-out, head down against the elements. Flawless performance should be a given, whilst rugged durability remains integral to the design. We’ve drawn on our horological heritage and the thirty years of insight we’ve gained from our riders and ambassadors to create a new capsule collection for 2016, featuring the Z42 and T44.

Inspired by the very first Animal 001 watch series, the Z42 is a true heritage piece. Classic lines combine with performance detail; from the precision of the Japanese quartz movement, to the 120 click unidirectional timer bezel for everyday timing duties.

Continuing our legacy for creating watches to withstand the harshest of conditions the Z42 is built to endure. The case is a solid 316L marine-grade stainless steel, the glass comes 3mm thick with an internal anti-reflective coating and the steel strap bars are reinforced for extra strength. This is a watch made for the outdoors, water-resistant to 200m, ready for whatever the next adventure brings.

Every detail of the Z42 is carefully considered; seen in the etched case-back graphics, the colour matched dial and date and the drilled case shoulders for convenient strap change. To allow for individual preference, multiple strap options are available, including: a stainless steel bracelet (complete with safety clasp and diver extension), a water-resistant leather design with Animal buckle, or a custom moulded hypo-allergenic nitrile rubber version. With a nod to Animal’s watch heritage, we’ve also included an original style hook and loop strap for free with all of the above options. The Z42 comes in a range of colours, from classic black with matching black face, to understated olive green or vivid orange.
