Zodiac Super Sea Wolf Automatic
Zodiac has been making premium-quality Swiss-made wristwatches since 1882. One of their most iconic timepieces, the Sea Wolf, was considered a revolutionary watch of its time. Built in 1953, the Sea Wolf opened up a whole new world for individuals who wanted a purpose-built diver watch without a hefty price tag. To this very day, the Sea Wolf remains one of the most iconic, most efficient commercial dive watches in the history of mankind. This year, Zodiac remakes the Sea Wolf and gives it a touch of 21st-century aesthetics.
Replacing the iconic radium dial of the 1953 model, the 21st century Super Sea Wolf now comes with an orange and white matte dial that gives it a friendlier, trendier, and hipper look. It’s the kind of design aesthetics that appeals more to the much younger crowd. Your granddaddy can keep his mid-20th century Sea Wolf while you strap the Super Sea Wolf on your wrist. It’s no longer just a venerable diver’s watch; it’s a fashion style statement.
Gone, too, is the stainless-steel watch band of the original Sea Wolf. The Super Sea Wolf now comes with a matte blue rubber strap that gives it lightweight yet equally durable characteristic. The rubber strap hugs the wrist like your partner holds your hands. It’s a different kind of sensation. It’s weird for those who are accustomed to the feel of stainless steel around their wrists, but it’s still a sensation that will grow on you the more you wear it.
The hands are also embedded with C3 SuperLuminova technology to allow for greater visualization of time in the darkened depths of the ocean. The anti-reflective coating on its sapphire glass crystal also aids in better visualization. One can dive up to depths of 660 feet and the Super Sea Wolf handles the pressure in stride.
The Super Sea Wolf may be Zodiac’s trendier and more stylish rendition of its classic timepiece, but no one can deny it still remains faithful to the brand’s focus on definitive styling. It’s a watch that’s great in the water as it is on dry land.
