Early last year, Zodiac introduced a GMT version of their Super Sea Wolf that was super popular, and quickly sold out. Zodiac knows a good thing when they see it, and they talked with fans about what the next color palette should be. Well, the public has spoken, and now we’re going to be getting a sherbet-inspired Zodiac Super Sea Wolf GMT.
In terms of the watch itself, it looks to be very much the same model we saw earlier – and that’s ok. In the same way I’ve reviewed a few different flavors of non-GMT Zodiac Super Sea Wolf models, they’re well-executed, and Zodiac knows how to make these watches. Rather than the jubilee-style bracelets I saw in those earlier reviews (seen here, for example), we’ve got the three-link sport bracelet.
But you know what they’ve done here? The’ve polished the center link, which I think is a superb way to go (just like on my very favored Sjoo Sandstrom) as it gives you a bit of flash without making the watch a fingerprint magnet.
Of course, the star of the Zodiac Super Sea Wolf GMT show is that new bezel combo. The sherbet orange plus bright white just screams summertime. Those colors carry onto the dial as well, though the dial has a bit more of an offwhite hue to it, so I’m not 100% sold on that. Then again, seeing it in person should help settle that – and we should have a loaner on the way in to help settle that in a full review.
