Zodiac’s Super Sea Wolf

Zodiac’s rich history dates all the way back to 1882, and they dove deep into the archives to pull inspiration for their latest Super Sea Wolf GMT watch. Powered by Swiss-made automatic movement, this is a modern rendition of their original 1966 Aerospace GMT model that was first imagined during the heart of the Space Race.

The super stealth all-black design is a handsome twist to other dive watches that also looks great out on the town. Sleek, uniquely styled, and wickedly powerful, this is a timepiece handmade for adventures out on the water.

This bad boy is powered by a Swiss-made C125 automatic three-hand movement that winds itself with the movement of your wrist. The case is made of stainless steel, 42 mm in diameter, and water resistant up to 300 meters.

Squale 1000m Dive Watch

The Squale 101 ATMOS Ref. 2002 watch is a remake of the original 101ATMOS from the 70s, and it’s a beast (in a good way). Made in Switzerland, the new Squale 2002 model is a 1000 meter dive watch that has the famous snap-on uni-directional bezel and 3.5mm thick sapphire crystal with a double gasket to ensure outstanding water resistance.

The unique black bezel insert is made of hard bakelite that is colored in a multi-stage process. First the phosphorescent material is applied by hand, followed by coloring with varnishes immune to seawater corrosion, and then application to the supporting steel substrate. This guarantees excellent bezel legibility. Like the vintage Squale model that inspired it, the bezel can always be unscrewed from above.

Squale may not be a watch brand you’re familiar with, but you probably should be. In their early days, Squale produced watches and watch cases for various Swiss brands who didn’t have the knowledge to build their own professional dive timepieces. The smaller brands used the Squale logo on their dial as a sign of quality. In 1950, Squale began to produce their own range of professional diving watches under the Squale name, marking the beginning of the brand’s institutional history.
