Who else is a fan of the Zodiac Super Sea Wolf reissues?

So I have to admit I have a fascination for the Zodiac Super Sea Wolf reissues.

There is just something compelling about the mid-century design and all the playful color combinations.

Yes - I know I have way too many of them and that they are not the highest grade in terms of quality...but I just can't resist them.

So what do you think of the Zodiac SSW reissues and which ones do you have in your collection?

O yeah!! If there was ever a model that needed to be collected....

The Zodiac collection is rather eye catching. I'm drawn to this one

Image

think it's rather cool. Love the colour combo. Only thing holding me back (0ther than the million of watches on the list) is that i read somewhere reliability and brand customer care is bad. maybe you know better on this @ChronoGuy

I try to purchase from reliable vendors like HODINKEE who will make sure to take care of me. I had an issue with one of the Zodiacs I purchased from them. They immediately sent a replacement and sent me a pre-paid label to return the defective watch. 

I have a few over ten in the collection and have only had that one issue so maybe a 10% defect rate - which would be really high.

You can also find deals on Zodiacs from gray market dealers and eBay but you are taking a risk in those channels.

thanks for this. i Might take the plunge on this one for the colours. i needs a bit of wild in the collection.

in my eyes they have the vintage vibe also. which always a good thing

Sweet collection…you got the whole wolf pack! I’ve never pulled the trigger on one myself, but the watermelon and orange sherbet versions have always made me come close. That baby blue one is also really nice! Only hesitation on my part has been the super fun colorways makes it too limiting in terms of versatility for me to justify splurging on. 

·

The orange and grey one - that's the watches.com x #zodiac collaboration model right? Is it real meteorite in the dial, or is it just the name of the colorway?

·

I haven’t got any but black one is nice.😏

I am glad that this brand got resurrected. It will take time to get their QC issues under control since that has never been a concentration for their parent group. The bright colors, retro styling, and reasonable size make them a great option and one that I will buy eventually. I have a soft spot for historical Zodiac because my father wore one for years. I can understand not wanting to be limited to just one, but then you are the opposite of the 3, 7, or 10 watch collector. The hardest choice for me would be to decide between the Super Sea Wolf 53 in traditional black or something cool like the watermelon.

It's real meteorite in the dial. Love the matte DLC treatment on case and bracelet as well.

I love the design.  I have one.  I do feel that they are a little overpriced when you compared them to similar offerings from Squale or Chris Ward…. But they are cool

I've had no issues with mine,I've put a couple of pics of mine on this page

Holy sh*t, are those all yours?  
 

I think they look great, I’d be happy to own any one of them. I’m wondering what you mean when you say they aren’t of the highest grade?  Are there actual issues, or they just don’t have impressive movements?

Looks amazing. Are the dial colours as vibrant in real life ? It really pops for me
