Though we’re not quite there yet, the idea of travel has begun to take hold in people’s minds again. While GMT, or dual-time watches have been having a moment for a little while, Zodiac is doubling down on the return of travel with their new Super Sea Wolf World Time Limited Editions. Based on a watch from their archives that was originally released in 1970, the new World Time combines the always-useful GMT complication, with a bezel featuring cities in all 24 time zones. Perfect for the literal globe trotter.
Based on Zodiac’s 40mm Super Sea Wolf dive watches, which sport 200m of water resistance, the World Time is a “beach to the boardroom” design. With applied markers on a sunray dials, it has a classic, dapper style that will look proper in first class, but also build and specs that will make it welcome in the surf. The dial features a contrasting 24-hour index around its edge, which combined with the red stick GMT hand adds some sporty attitude as well. Topping it off is the world time bezel, which has an undeniably eccentric appeal. From Cairo to Anchorage to Karachi, it’s got the world covered.
Hopping between locales? Set the main hands to your local time, and the 24-hour GMT hand to your home time. Want to know the time in your final destination or just anywhere else in the world? Just turn the bezel so your home city aligns with the GMT hand, and simply find the city that’s in the zone you are headed to. Sounds a bit tricky, but it’s easy in practice.
Limited to 500 units per color, the Super Sea Wolf World Time comes in Black or Scarlet. Black features a dark gray sunray dial with a silver 24-hour index, and a black bezel. It’s dark and moody and will look great with a houndstooth jacket. The Scarlet model is for those who want some more color. Featuring a silver dial with a black 24-hour index, the bezel is a ring of deep, bold red. Striking, but in a good way, it’s got a bit more of a casual overall vibe. Both models are powered by the Swiss-made Soprod C125 automatic movement, supplying reliable timekeeping.
Whether you intend on traveling the world anytime soon, or just want to know what time it is in Tokyo or Paris or New York or anywhere for that matter, the Zodiac Super Sea Wolf World Time is a handy and stylish way to go about it. Coming in a $1,795 for either color, they are available now and ready to ship.
