Zodiac Watches have been around for a long time, 140 years in fact. And throughout that entire time, they have striven to create fun and technical watches that put emphasis on being stylish and practical. That endeavour brings us all the way to 2022 and the new limited edition Zodiac Super Sea Wolf Pro-Diver Titanium. It’s their first pro-diver wristwatch in titanium and a celebration of their landmark anniversary.
Obviously, the new titanium case is a major part of the limited edition. It takes elements of the standard stainless steel version and turns them up to eleven. For example, it has a larger diameter of 42mm compared to 40mm and has a water resistance rating of 300m instead of just 200m. The titanium allows it to be bigger and more resilient without compromising on the Super Sea Wolf’s weight or durability, thanks to the metal’s lightweight and corrosion resistant properties.
Style wise, the new watch riffs on the steel model again. It has a luminescent green bezel with an orange inner bezel ring. The main surface of the dial is black, providing great contrast to the brighter aspects of the display and working cohesively with the darker tone of the grey titanium case. Considering the large, lumed surfaces of the hands, hour markers and bezel, no one will have any issues reading the Zodiac Pro-Diver Titanium in low light conditions or under water.
Beneath the dial, housed inside the titanium case, is the Sellita SW200-1 automatic movement. It’s a tried and trusted work horse movement that’s popular for its accessibility, wide availability and solid specs. Its weakest aspect is that it only has a 38-hour power reserve but that’s easily overlooked considering all the positives it has. Plus, the Zodiac Super Sea Wolf Pro-Diver Titanium is both COSC chronometer and ISO dive watch certified.
Rounding out the piece is a seven link titanium bracelet that really brings home the sporty, dive aesthetic. As for pricing, it’s $2,495 (approx. £2,040), which is a good price considering the use of high tech materials and the fact it’s a limited edition. My favourite thing about the Zodiac Pro-Diver Titanium though is the use of bright colours, something that more Swiss watchmakers should learn from.
