By now, we should always all be aware of Zodiac, as we’ve coated fairly a variety of their releases (and completed hands-on critiques) (seen right here), and as of late, they’ve been iterating on their designs. More not too long ago, we’ve had some daring splashes of colour from the model, and I believe that’s why we’re seeing these specific colour combos on the just-announced Zodiac Super Sea Wolf Pro-Diver Mainline.
Not surprisingly, this watch seems fairly just like one we reviewed right here after which wrote about right here. However, there are some fascinating modifications right here. For one, the motion is now not the STP 1-11 or STP 3-13. No, fairly than leaning into their very own provide, this Zodiac can be housing a Sellita SW200. Now, in our restricted time with evaluate loaners, we didn’t have any points with the STP actions, however we suppose the SW200 will give patrons a little bit extra confidence.
Next up, the Zodiac Super Sea Wolf Pro-Diver Mainline is available in a bigger case (42mm) and has a better WR ranking (300m as a substitute of 200m) than prior editions. I believe these are working collectively, and assist to make the watch focus extra on what being a dive watch from the 60s could be like. And positive, these wild colours assist cement the period, and the minute hand coming in orange reinforces the dive instrument look.
One half that’s completely trendy on the Zodiac Super Sea Wolf Pro-Diver Mainline (properly, apart from the supplies and motion) is the luminous supplies used. You’ve bought grade-A SuperLuminova on the palms, indices, and bezel; one mannequin even has a full-lume dial. This signifies that you’ve bought fairly the sunshine present (which I all the time recognize), with some lume colours that we don’t generally see (properly, besides on different Zodiac fashions).
The Zodiac Super Sea Wolf Pro-Diver Mainline is offered now, at a barely increased pricepoint than we’ve seen from the model – $1,695, a $300-400 premium in comparison with what we’ve seen earlier than. We’re inquiring a couple of loaner for evaluate, and within the meantime you possibly can test them out over at zodiacwatches.com.
