About Zodiac Watches

The Zodiac watch brand is famous for its innovative watchmaking and colorful designs. Alongside its great pricing are great watches that hold a lot of value for your money. With prices starting at just $895, Zodiac watches are a great option for someone looking for a luxury watch brand with a rich history that won’t cost an arm and a leg.

History of Zodiac Watches

Founded in 1882 by Ariste Calame in Le Locle, Switzerland, Zodiac swiftly gained recognition for its exceptional craftsmanship and precision. Fast forward to 1953, when some of the most iconic dive watches we know today were released. The Zodiac Sea Wolf was released in the same year as the Rolex Submariner and Blancpain Fifty Fathoms. It was the first watch to feature 15-minute markings on the bezel. To this day, elements of the original Sea Wolf design are incorporated into Zodiac Super Sea Wolf watches.

The Zodiac Super Sea Wolf is one of the brand’s most popular collections. It remains an accessible and affordable dive watch with most styles falling between $1,000 – $1,700. We love the Zodiac Super Sea Wolf ZO9269 with its playful colors of orange and green.

The Zodiac Super Sea Wolf GMT ZO9405 draws inspiration from the classic Zodiac Aerospace watch that was popular in the 1960s. It features a fourth hand on the dial to track a second time zone.

Another popular collection is the Zodiac Olympos. This dress watch was first introduced back in 1961 and reintroduced in 2018. This modern-day Zodiac Olympos ZO9711 has a retro feel with a Manta Ray shaped case and domed sapphire crystal. The winding crown can be found on the upper right wing of the case. When the light hits the unique quadrant-style dial, it reveals an interesting pattern that resembles a Zodiac symbol.

Following the success of the 37mm Zodiac Olympos releases in 2018, Zodiac unveiled two 40mm versions. Like its predecessor, the Zodiac Olympos ZO9712 also gives off a vintage vibe with the Manta Ray shaped case. In place of the quadrant dial, the 40mm Olympos includes a gradient dial with large easy-to-read Arabic numerals.
