ZODIAC Super Sea Wolf PRO-DIVER

Zodiac’s Super Sea Wolf goes pro for 2022! 

With the Sea Wolf fast approaching its 70th birthday; Zodiac has released a new diver’s model bearing the same name as the OG Sea Wolf Skin Diver from the 1950s.

Carrying forth a name that dates back to 1953 when the Zodiac Sea Wolf Skin Diver first surfaced – a time when its contemporaries would have been Blancpain’s Fifty Fathoms and Rolex’s Submariner, the 2022 model now boasts a professional designation. While the Sea Wolf never gained the same kind of critical acclaim that the aforementioned diver's watch icons did, its name has endured. This is the new Super Sea Wolf Pro-Diver Automatic with its Stainless case measuring 42mm in diameter and with a thickness of 14.3mm. It is presented in four vibrant colorways as well as a model in a more sober classic black all of which are equipped with ceramic bezel inlays. With its 300 meters of water-resistance the new Sea Wolf Pro-Diver fully complies with ISO certification for diver’s watches. Power comes from a COSC-certified Sellita SW-200 automatic chronometer movement with an accuracy of between +6 and -4 seconds per day. Generously applied Swiss SuperLumiNova illuminates the SW Pro-Diver’s hands, indexes and bezel markings in low-lit conditions. Each SW Pro-Diver has been hand-assembled in Biel-Bienne, Switzerland and created in small-batch, limited quantity – meaning once a colorway is gone its gone for good. The new Super Sea Wolf Pro-Diver Automatic COSC has an MSRP of 1’695USD.

Thoughts? The current lineup of Zodiac diver’s models including this new one, do little to stir any emotion in me. 

If and when the Super Sea Wolf from the late nighties / early noughties makes a comeback, the one with the saw-tooth bezel I’ll change my tune. But what do you think?

    1. There so many other more special watches offering far greater value and with true character.
