Zelos Spearfish vs. pOrtahl Peacemaker - Which One Should You Buy?

pOrtahl's Peacemaker and the Zelos Spearfish are two exceptional watches that offer a lot of value for their respective prices. The Peacemaker is priced at $699, while the Zelos Spearfish is priced at $749. Both are quality watches, but how do they compare to each other?

Here's a comparison blog to help you decide which watch is the better option for you.

Price Comparison

The Spearfish and Peacemaker differ in price, with the former being the more affordable of the two. While the Spearfish is available for $749, the Peacemaker is priced at $699. However, when looking at what the Peacemaker offers in terms of design and quality of materials it becomes apparent that the added cost might well be worth the investment.


The Zelos Spearfish features a look and feel that is not uncommon when browsing diver watches. It draws from classic silver diver watch design elements made popular by heritage brands such as Rolex and Tudor. While the Spearfish looks very good, its design is not veru unique and similar watches can be found many times over.

The Peacemaker, on the other hand, offers a bold and unique design that was meant to stand out from the crowd. It was designed specifically to not be another silver diver watch that your neighbor is already wearing. Its matte black finish, ultra slim case and off-center crown, just to name a few design elements, were meant to offer a refreshing perspective on traditional watch design.

Overall, it's clear that Peacemaker offers the wearer a more unique look when compared to the Zelos Spearfish, when considering the wider market. If you are looking to stand out, Peacemaker will help you do just that.


The choice of material is essential in achieving the right balance of durability, aesthetics, and affordability.

The Spearfish is crafted with a 316L stainless steel case, which is well-known for its durability and corrosion resistance. While stainless steel has become popular in watchmaking due to being relatively cheap and easy to work with, there are much higher-quality materials available.

The Peacemaker is crafted from aerospace-grade titanium, which is more expensive than stainless steel but offers quite significant benefits. Titanium is three to four times stronger and considerably lighter than stainless steel, making it more comfortable to wear for extended periods of time.

Additionally, unlike stainless steel, titanium is fully hypoallergenic, making it safe for sensitive skin. Stainless steel on the other hand can very often contain nickel, one of the most common allergens for people with a metal allergy or sensitive skin.


Both the Spearfish and Peacemaker feature high-quality automatic movements, but there are some clear differences to note. The Spearfish is powered by the LJP G100 Soigné movement, which has 24 jewels, and a 68-hour power reserve. The Peacemaker, on the other hand, is powered by the Swiss-made STP1-11 automatic movement, which has 26 jewels, and a 44-hour power reserve.

In terms of accuracy and quality, both movements are reliable and accurate, but there are two notable differences.

The Peacemaker's higher jewel count makes the movement more durable, with extra jewels protecting the barrel bridge - a part in the movement that easily wears out of time.

The LJP in the Spearfish on the other hand has a much longer power reserve, allowing you to take off the watch for longer without the hands coming to a halt.
