What’s New, Now

Zodiac Sea Wolf 53


Zodiac created this special-edition Sea Wolf 53 as a tribute to a rare colorway from its iconic ‘60s diver. The result, with its pale blue bezel and black and orange dial, is a dead-ringer for the original. The watch’s compact case — at just 40mm in diameter and 11mm thick — certainly helps bring that vision to light, as it calls to mind the smaller tool watches of the mid-20th century. But the movement is all new: an automatic STP 3-13, certified to the COSC’s stringent standards for accuracy. That’s a lot of watch for the money.
