A Closer Look at the Zodiac Super Sea Wolf Diver

The Zodiac Super Sea Wolf Diver is a watch that is inspired by an earlier model called the Zodiac Sea Dragon Chronograph, a large quartz Chrono with a 1970s vintage appeal that delivers a nostalgic nod to the Divers of yesteryear. These inspirations from the past give us a sense of comfort because of their familiarity, even if it’s only through subtle hints and nuances from another time. The Super Sea Wold diver has the DNA wound within its chemistry but it has a personality that is distinct and set apart from the rest. It’s like that in families and watches are no different. This interesting and vibrant example deserves a closer look and inspection of the features and details that make it so very unique in the world of wristwatches, divers in particular.

An eye-catching aesthetic

The Zodiac Super Sea Wolf Diver is a charming watch that catches the eye immediately with vibrant blue colors and a splash of orange for accents. These are the things that call your attention to the watch, where you can’t help but follow the colors onto the finer details of the watch. The looks are unique if not impressive, and they’re what attracts us to the watch for a closer examination of the physical properties.

The case, bezel, crown, and lugs

The Super Sea Wolf Diver features a round shaped steel case that is 40mm in diameter and 13mm thick. The case back is made of solid steel which protects the delicate movement within. The crown is a screw -down type with lugs that are polished steel and lengthy to accommodate the jubilee bracelet. The bezel is a generous size that is presented in a vibrant blue color that gives it a sporty appeal. An insert of mineral glass is set within the bezel and is capped with a domed sapphire crystal that provides a highlight for the depth of the design of the dial.

The dial

The dial is colored in a navy blue which matches the bezel color, giving it a sophisticated yet attention-craving aesthetic with a wink to the sea. Chunky white and orange hours and minutes hands offer enhanced legibility and stand out nicely with the second’s hand in a needle style in a dark silver color that goes well with the case and bracelet. The depth of the dial allows for highlighting of the tall applied luminous markers and the applied logo. They have an inset quality about them that is really quite unique, but it’s one of those subtle features and you’ll only catch it if you pay attention. This allows for a decent play of light which is another interesting detail about the Super Sea Wolf Diver. The font usage is reminiscent of watches from the 1960s and ’70s era.

The movement

The movement is an STP 3-13 which indicates that it is made by Swiss Technology Production. It’s an automatic power source with 26 jewels beating at 4 Hz with a power reserve of 44 hours. The protection of the solid back steel case prevents damage to the intricate inner mechanical workings of the movement and along with the domed crystal sapphire, the watch is provided with water resistance up to 200 meters.

The bracelet

The long polished lugs attach nicely to the metal jubilee linked bracelet. It fastens with a butterfly clasp with a small spring flex and an easy to use push button feature. There is no way to make micro-adjustments so you need to get the sizing right. Links can be removed as needed.

The pricing of the Super Sea Wolf Diver

The Zodiac Super Sea Wolf Diver, reference number Z09266, retails for $1,395. You can also find versions of this unique and charming sports watch in a strap version without the metal bracelet for as low as $1,095. The quality of the movement is the main factor in establishing the retail value of the watch.

Final thoughts

The Zodiac Super Sea Wolf Diver is a unique and interesting diver watch that has its own personality. It’s an eye-catcher, but not in a brash way. The few orange accents are used tastefully and they do serve a practical purpose for making the diver highly legible. The addition of lume enhances this feature in low light environments. It’s a fun watch that fits comfortably on the wrist despite its thickness and for the price is considered to be a good value in both metal and strap fasteners.
