    What's all this stuff I hear regarding Zeno?

    I think Zeno makes nice watches, but I see too much weird information on the forum regarding either warranty service horror stories, defective products not being repaired quickly enough, and so forth.

    Finally, is Zeno sold online or not? Zeno's http://www.zeno-watch.ch/en/ says NO, but, Zeno USA http://www.zenousa.com/ claims to be legit? I'm confused.

    If the issue with Zeno is resolved/explained to me and turns out to be my misunderstanding of what's going on, I will gladly add Zeno to my current top choice list of Stowa and Archimede.


    Thanks!

    Re: What's all this stuff I hear regarding Zeno?

    I recently bought a Zeno Pilot on-line from their US dist in Texas at:

    http://www.zenowatchbasel.com/collections.htm

    Arrived fine, no fuss no muss...

    No need to invoke warranty so far. fingers crossed.


    p.s. I paid full list for it. ArizonaFineTime has some Zeno watches at a discount. I've never ordered from them though. They didn't offer the model I was after so went to Zeno USA directly.

    Using the search function youĺl find 18 pages with Zeno-related threads. One of them is calles Zeno: Warning. Here's the link: https://forums.watchuseek.com/showthr...t=zeno+warning

    I met the ZENO guys at Baselworld this year, the model range is miscellaneous and a bit irritating (at last for me). I'd like them to concentrate on less models.

    I live in Scottsdale and I know the owner of Arizona Fine Times. It is a website owned by Cigar King. They have a awesome cigar lounge/humidor and sell luxury goods such as watches, pens, and accessories.

    Mitch, who is the owner gives some excellent bargains on German and Swiss watches

    I will be attending his cigar party this weekend to mark the end of smoking in all bars and restaurants in Arizona starting May 1st. Now we can smoke cigars only at home

    Cheers,

    Bhanu

    I had the same doubts until I ran across another post on this forum it follows:

    ./.Ambience 360 does sell fakes./.

    I'd be careful with such statements, according to Zeno they are authorized to sell the brand, i've asked for. Here's a quote from the mail:

    We certify that all the watches that Mr. A.Gollatz or Mr. H. Höhne are selling are original Zeno watches.
    Best regards,

    Here is a link to the on-line (ebay) store I have done business with. Edited by moderator: No commercial links, please read our rules & guidelines I'm comfortable with the authenticity of this site and of my recent purchase of a Zeno Magellano / white face from them, they appear to be legititimate. I hope this clears things up for you. Personally I think they are great looking watches.
