California’s Topper Jewelers, Zodiac, and Eric Singer (yes, of KISS fame) have teamed up once again to bring you a blast-from-the-past trio of Sea Wolfs. Today, we’re going hands-on with these three watches — which are, by the way, limited editions exclusive to Topper Jewelers – inspired by some unique and lesser-known pieces from Zodiac’s back catalog. We covered these watches when they were first announced so now we’re going to take a deeper dive after spending some time with the collection.

If you look at the cases, they’re essentially the same across all three models, just finished a little differently. The Rally models, for example, get a highly-polished surface treatment throughout — an excellent complement to the jubilee bracelet that they ship on. There’s even a small step along both edges of the bracelet that is meant to copy the look of older riveted bracelets, which are making a small comeback these days.

Inside, each of the watches are powered by Zodiac’s own STP 3-13-3 caliber. The movement is a simple three-hander with no date and it displays only the hours, minutes, and seconds. It boasts 44 hours of power reserve, which is a small boost over a standard ETA workhorse. These are also COSC-certified and come upgraded with a swan-neck regulator, which aren’t common features at this price point. 
The first thing that my eye was drawn to is the rally bezel. Instead of the standard dive scale, there’s a white checkerboard running around the outside of the dial. Topper and Zodiac borrowed inspiration from one of Zodiac’s rarer vintage references. So rare, in fact, that it’s hard to even find photos of it on the internet. It’s nice to see a reissue of a watch that most collectors can’t easily get their hands on. But it’s not just the look of the bezel; it’s also how it’s constructed. The insert lives under a layer of mineral glass (instead of using a metal insert or plastic coating) and the result mimics vintage bakelite bezels. When looking at the watch, the mineral glass adds some extra shine and depth. Another small and appreciated detail is the interesting shape of the hands. On the Rally models, they’re referred to as “shovel” hands, and they do, in fact, look like little shovels. Again, they’re funky and ’70s-inspired, and look right at home on this watch. 
My favorite thing about these Zodiacs has to be how well the dials are executed. The “dégradé” dials are just awesome, especially in the deep shades of blue and grey chosen for these watches, and I love how they play with light. The slight gradient, interesting sunburst effect, and generous use of applied indices and logos culminate in a dial that’s easy to get lost in (in the best way possible).

The chunky design and bright patterns make the Rally editions visually look like they’re on the bigger side. But all three models share the same reasonably sized 40mm case. When viewing the watch from the side, the mid-case is one vertical surface. This adds some visual chunkiness, but on the wrist, it still wears well. On either side of the case, you’ll find the slanting lugs, which help the watch hug your wrist. Speaking of the lugs, they span a reasonable 48mm from end-to-end. If you’re looking for a conservatively-sized diver that still has some wrist presence, these Zodiacs do the trick. 

Another area where the Zodiacs shine is their bracelets. The machining, fit, and finish on both styles of bracelet are very high quality. The machining on the individual links of the jubilee bracelet is equally impressive whether you’re looking at the top or bottom surface of the bracelet. In an effort to improve the overall comfort of the bracelet, the links closest to the clasp have a spring-loaded element that allows the bracelet a little bit of give. Sometimes it’s hard to get a bracelet sized just right, and this extra bit of slack really goes a long way in ensuring comfortable wear.
