By now, we should all be familiar with Zodiac, as we’ve covered quite a number of their releases (and done hands-on reviews) (seen here), and as of late, they’ve been iterating on their designs. More recently, we’ve had some bold splashes of color from the brand, and I think that’s why we’re seeing these particular color combos on the just-announced Zodiac Super Sea Wolf Pro-Diver.
Not surprisingly, this watch looks quite similar to one we reviewed here and then wrote about here. However, there are some interesting changes here. For one, the movement is no longer the STP 1-11 or STP 3-13. No, rather than leaning into their own supply, this Zodiac will be housing a Sellita SW200. Now, in our limited time with review loaners, we didn’t have any issues with the STP movements, but we suppose the SW200 will give buyers a little more confidence.
Next up, the Zodiac Super Sea Wolf Pro-Diver comes in a larger case (42mm) and has a higher WR rating (300m instead of 200m) than prior editions. I think those are working together, and help to make the watch focus more on what being a dive watch from the 60s would be like. And sure, these wild colors help cement the era, and the minute hand coming in orange reinforces the dive tool look.
One part that is thoroughly modern on the Zodiac Super Sea Wolf Pro-Diver (well, aside from the materials and movement) is the luminous materials used. You’ve got grade-A SuperLuminova on the hands, indices, and bezel; one model even has a full-lume dial. This means that you’ve got quite the light show (which I always appreciate), with some lume colors that we don’t commonly see (well, except on other Zodiac models).
The Zodiac Super Sea Wolf Pro-Diver is available now, at a slightly higher price point than we’ve seen from the brand – $1,695, a $300-400 premium compared to what we’ve seen before. We’re inquiring about a loaner for review, and in the meantime you can check them out over at zodiacwatches.com.
