Few, if any, brands have quite the mastery of fun color combinations that Zodiac does, and this new limited-edition Super Sea Wolf GMT “Sherbet Orange and Cream” is a great demonstration of that skill.
This watch was the result of an interesting Instagram process in which fans were allowed to vote for their favorite watch to make a reality. I can’t say I disagree with their taste. The new color combination looks terrific, being both bold and yet somehow also restrained. It gives it that iconic Zodiac vintage look without actually looking old. I think the key is the off-white dial which gives it a bit of warmth.
As the name implies, it’s a GMT, allowing the wearer to track two different time zones simultaneously, thanks to its ETA 2893-2 movement. On a visual level, this allows Zodiac to employ more orange on the dial, in the form of this GMT hand.
The case remains perfectly sized at 40mm, and although it’s a watch aimed at frequent fliers, it maintains its 200 meter water resistance, so it’s still a great companion in the water.
There is just this effortless cool to the watch, present in so many Zodiacs, that’s hard to match. It’s a watch that’s not trying to be tough or tactical. Instead, the new Super Sea Wolf GMT is just fun and relaxed, an ideal piece for a summer vacation.
At a very reasonable $1,695, the only big downside to this watch is that they’re only making 282 of them. Click here to pre-order yours before they’re all gone!
