In the 1960s the Aerospace GMT was Zodiac’s entry into a new genre of watches for travellers, commercial pilots and the otherwise jet set. Built off of the Sea Wolf format, the Aerospace featured a 24-hour bakelite bezel with a split dial, a more formal dial design, and, of course, a fourth hand on the dial for tracking a second time zone (three with the bezel). In the Spring of 2019 Zodiac brought the design back in a series of limited editions that sold out in a flash, becoming a modern cult hit. The Zodiac Super Sea Wolf GMT “Sherbet” is the newest limited edition in this line.
The Zodiac Super Sea Wolf GMT, like the original, is built off of a diver format, featuring a 40mm case with a sapphire crystal and 200m water resistance. A slight change is present in the brushed lugs which feature a sharp, polished bevel for a more formal and elegant look. Additionally, the bezel has been switched to a bi-directional mechanism with 24-clicks. The dial speaks to that of the original Aerospace, with applied markers and blocky hands for a mix of dress and sport.
The “Sherbet” version features an exotic blend of white and orange for a bright and bold combination that’s perfect for summer. The dial is a slightly warm white with orange accents around the edge, adding just a touch of excitement. The bezel, however, is full-on fun. Split between a striking safety orange and pure white, it’s vibrant and modern. The text on the bezel is rendered in dark navy blue, adding an unexpected contrast.
The Zodiac Super Sea Wolf GMT “Sherbet” is limited to 282 pieces worldwide. When it’s gone, it’s gone for good.
Inside of the Zodiac Super Sea Wolf GMT “Sherbet” is the ETA 2893-2 caliber. This Swiss-made movement is a 21-jewel automatic with date, independent 24-hour hand, hand-winding, 42-hour power reserve, a frequency of 28,880 bph (beats per hour) and hacking seconds (the second-hand stops when the crown is pulled out).
