Does the Zodiac Super Sea Wolf GMT even need an intro at this point? Since returning in 2019, the originally titled Aerospace GMT from the 1960s have been a highly successful traveling companion to the brand’s vintage-inspired tool diver catalog. A classic take on a romantic complication, the Super Sea Wolf GMTs, whether rendered in bright or muted colors, have a mid-century finesse that gives them an undeniable and effortless style. Today, we’re excited to announce the newest Zodiac Super Sea Wolf GMT, the Blueberry limited edition, available exclusively at Windup Watch Shop.
As the name suggests, this version of the Super Sea Wolf GMT has a notable use of blue tones, though in keeping with the vintage characteristics of the design, it’s not too in your face either. Inspired by the blue tones experienced under water, the split bezel features two versions of the cool color. On top, a brighter, Mediterranean blue meant to evoke the color of light breaking through the surface. On the bottom, a dark navy blue, hinting at the mysterious depths below. A tasteful combination, the two tones resonate with each other. The dark bottom making the bright pop, while the brighter blue brings out the subtle coolness of the near black bottom.
Tying the palette together is a classic black dial. Clean, and crisp, the matte surface features applied markers for indicating hours as well as wide lume plots for visibility in the dark. A matching date disk at three adds functionality without disrupting the surface. Staying true to the 60’s original, blocky hands point to the time with a red GMT that pops out against the black and contrasts the blue bezel.
The case of the Super Sea Wolf GMT Blueberry is a variation on the Super Sea Wolf diver, keeping the 200m of water resistance. Made out of stainless steel, it measures 40mm x 48mm x 13.6mm, with a 20mm lug width. It’s beautifully finished, with brushing on all surfaces, save polished bevels along the lugs that add some formality to the design. Inside is the Soprod C-125 caliber. A Swiss-made automatic, it features 25-jewels, date, independent 24-hour hand, hand-winding, 42-hour power reserve, a frequency of 28,880 bph, and hacking seconds.
Attaching the Blueberry to the wrist is a navy blue suede strap. The perfect compliment to this watch, it plays off of the bezel coloring while adding to the vintage styling of the design. A versatile strap, out of the box the watch is ready to be worn casually with jeans, or more formally with a blue blazer. Regardless, with 20mm lugs, the blue and black watch will be easy to pair with any strap of your choosing.
The Zodiac Super Sea Wolf GMT Blueberry limited edition is meant to be a classic, wearable watch. It’s not meant to shock and draw attention, or play off of the current hype trends. Rather, it blends in with its subtle combination of colors and versatile demeanor. A stylish and capable sports watch with vintage flair, it’s a timeless design that will be a welcome addition to any collection, especially those looking to add a high quality GMT.
The Zodiac Super Sea Wolf GMT Blueberry is available now exclusively at the Windup Watch Shop for $1495. This is a limited edition of 200 units.
