Dive Watch Wednesday: Plunging Into the Past With the New Zodiac Sea Wolf

Apart from all that, we were rather happy to see that the Zodiac Sea Wolf is back and in such good shape. We are now looking forward to seeing the final versions of the much more performance-oriented Super Sea Wolf that has been announced for autumn of this year. It certainly seems as though Zodiac has learned a great deal about how to better treat the heritage of its brand. 

What we would have changed:

  • A regular folding clasp instead of the foldover clasp used for the bracelet
  • As an alternative, a no-date version as well
  • The screw-in crown could have been slightly upgraded with an engraved logo

What we liked very much:

  • A re-edition that is surprisingly faithful to the original (even retaining the wrong “30” on the bezel)
  • It is one of the increasingly rare dive watches with a smaller diameter
  • Matching date wheel colors
  • The switch to the regular bracelet adapters (versus the prototype versions with missing end links)

What we absolutely loved:

  • Comfortable to wear
  • Surprisingly elegant for a diver, and a great casual watch for everyday wear
