Zodiac Super Sea Wolf: Moody Black Edition

Some black case watches look the business and this Zodiac Super Sea Wolf has a mix of steel and ceramic materials for durability plus that certain style. There are other variants of the 40mm Sea Wolf of course and we prefer the white or blue dial versions, but the black case model, just launched, has its merits.

On the downside it retails at $1695, which is about $500 more than some of the other Super Sea Wolf watches. Inside there’s the same STP-1 Swiss auto movement, so you’re not getting a tweaked, decorated or factory tuned movement for the extra cash.

With 200m of resistance, plenty of superluminova on the dial and hands, it has functionality under the waves, plus a rubber strap for adventures and sports activities. It has a great deal going for it, but there are other great value 200m automatic watches out there, at considerably less than the Zodiac asking price.

Like what you ask? Well let’s start with the Tissot Sea Star T-1000 at £490, with 300m of depth rating. Then there’s the Certina DS PH200, which also shares the Powermatic 80 movement and retails at £695. The Mido Ocean Star range starts at £800. Then there’s literally hundreds of Indie brands making 200m dive watches for under $500.

Verdict; you have to really love the Zodiac name to pay $1695 for this watch.
