The Zodiac Sea Wolf is a dive watch with immense staying power. It was the first watch with a rotating bezel, and Zodiac has continued to improve and innovate the model. The Super Sea Wolf 53 is one of the boldest iterations we’ve seen yet, with a deep black stainless steel case and bracelet, as well as a black dial. The unidirectional bezel is made from mineral crystal, and the white lume hands glow bright blue in striking contrast to the black dial. The Swiss timepiece features an automatic STP 3-13 movement, and comes with a 2-year international warranty. And if you buy it either today or tomorrow, it’s eligible to come with a free black rubber strap, so you can alternate bands as you please.
