Zodiac Super Sea Wolf Compression ZO9269 'Watermelon Candy' Watch Hands-On Hands-On


I love colors and I love classic watch designs rendered in fun colors. So you can imagine my smile when I saw this version of the Zodiac Sea Wolf Compression diver (the updated name Zodiac is using for the previously-titled Super Sea Wolf 53) being released for 2018 when meeting with the brand during Baselworld a few months ago. Zodiac has no lack of creative fun with their classically-inspired modern dive watches – as many of the colorful limited edition models attest to. For this particular version of the Super Sea Wolf the creative team was inspired by a vintage diving mask that I believe is from the 1960s. Rendered in coral orange and aquamarine, the particular tones remind me of some watermelon flavored candy. Lacking an official name aside from the reference ZO9269, I now think of this as the “Zodiac Super Sea Wolf Watermelon Candy Diver.” Feel free to come up with your own name inspired by these pleasant summer colors.
