As part of its ongoing collaboration with Harry’s Bar, Jack Carlson’s cult brand Rowing Blazers is partnering with Swiss watchmakers Zodiac to create a limited-edition Super Sea Wolf timepiece celebrating the oldest cocktail bar in Europe. The watch, limited to 282 units, is set to be released with a special event at Harry’s during Paris Men’s Fashion Week in January 2023.
The Rowing Blazers x Zodiac Harry's Bar Super Sea Wolf features a co-branded bottle green dial adorned with Harry's iconic "bar flies" cartoon logo in a 40mm stainless steel case, Zodiac’s classic 5-link stainless steel bracelet, STP 1-11 automatic movement, and boasts water resistance rating of 20 ATM. The limited edition set also includes an additional French military-style #tide strap made from 100% recycled ocean plastic.
Rowing Blazers Founder and Creative Director Jack Carlson — himself a member of Harry’s own storied secret society, the International Bar Flies (or I.B.F.) — says “Harry’s New York Bar is everything we aspire to be at Rowing Blazers: inclusive and unassuming, charmingly ridiculous, but with a hint of old-world glamor and a deep appreciation for history — all while remaining inventive, creative, and innovative. I’m excited to work with one of my favorite watch brands, Zodiac, to create this limited-edition watch celebrating one of my favorite bars. It’s rare and special to bring together three like-minded brands like this.”
This project marks Rowing Blazers’ first collaboration with Zodiac. Jack and Rowing Blazers are no strangers to the watch world: Jack designed two watch capsules for Seiko in 2021 and 2022 in partnership with vintage watch expert Eric Wind, both of which sold out almost instantly. “Zodiac has always stood for fun, yet serious tool watches,” adds Wind. “The company’s vintage models, often featuring an amazing array of colors, are some of my favorite watches to collect and wear. The new Harry’s Bar Watch is our take on that tradition, with an eye-catching dial in a highly-wearable case.”
