Zodiac Introduces Two New Models (Refs. ZO9274 and ZO9275) to Their Super Sea Wolf Range

Share this story:

Zodiac has just announced two new additions to their extremely popular Super Sea Wolf line, both with dramatic blue tones that explicitly play up a connection to the ocean. These watches, like all modern additions to the Sea Wolf collection, offer a great mix of funky vintage flair with the modern and high quality finishing and design we’ve come to expect from Zodiac. Let’s take a closer look at these two new vintage-inspired dive watches.

The ZO9274 sports a clean silver tone dial and a bright blue bezel that recalls the type of ocean water you primarily see in nature documentaries — it’s truly brilliant and bright, and gives the watch an immediate and tropical vibe. The whole piece has a fairly minimalist aesthetic. There’s exactly one Arabic numeral on the watch, a 30 on the dive bezel, giving what is in reality a fashion forward beach watch just the right amount of utilitarian appeal. An orange minute hand adds some color contrast, and fat indices at 12, 3, 6, and 9 are generously coated in lume, making for what is sure to be a highly visible and legible watch in a variety of lighting conditions. It’s all finished off with a jubilee style five-link bracelet, which adds a slightly incongruous and charming touch of formality to the classic dive watch look.

The ZO9275 is, at first glance, merely in the inverse of the ZO9274, but it has a few key differences in the small details. Most obvious, the colorway is changed up — we now have a sunburst-blue dial with accents in white, and a black bezel with some subtle red contrast to match the red minute hand. Speaking of those hands, a close inspection reveals a completely different handset. The ZO9275’s hands lack the “bulb” at the end of each, giving them a more refined and traditional appearance. Dial furniture has changed slightly as well, with indices more closely matched in size at each hour marker. A date window has also been incorporated at 3. The ZO9275 is mounted on a tropic style rubber strap.

Zodiac tells us these watches were inspired by the book, Blue Mind: The Surprising Science That Shows How Being Near, In, On, or Under Water Can Make You Happier, Healthier, More Connected, and Better at What You Do. It’s certainly not late breaking news to many that being near the ocean or some other body of water has intangible benefits, and I kind of like the idea that Zodiac has made a deliberate attempt to recreate that whenever we check the time.

Zach is a native of New Hampshire, and he has been interested in watches since the age of 13, when he walked into Macy’s and bought a gaudy, quartz, two-tone Citizen chronograph with his hard earned Bar Mitzvah money. It was lost in a move years ago, but he continues to hunt for a similar piece on eBay. Zach loves a wide variety of watches, but leans toward classic designs and proportions that have stood the test of time. He is currently obsessed with Grand Seiko.
