The Zodiac Super Sea Wolf GMT has long been one of my favorite GMT watches. Not only do I like its functionality and overall design, but I also appreciate how Zodiac has never been afraid to use some amazingly bright colors for the GMT bezels. As a result, the Super Sea Wolf GMT has always stood out for me. I have considered buying the Sherbet and Neon limited editions multiple times. However, the one GMT from Zodiac that got away was the then-called Aerospace GMT from 2019 with an orange and blue bezel. It shows that the Zodiac has mesmerized me more than once with its colors. Now the brand does it again with two new Super Sea Wolf GMT colorways powered by a new movement. It’s time to find out more!

Sometimes, I see the Sherbet limited edition of the Super Sea Wolf GMT pop up on the secondary market and think about buying it. Zodiac created the perfect summer watch with that bright orange and white version of the Super Sea Wolf GMT. The Neon edition is a similar watch with a bright green and white bezel that looks equally stunning. However, like the Aerospace GMT, that one hardly ever pops up for sale. When it does, it needs to be at the right time, which it usually isn’t. But I never dismissed the thought of actually buying a Zodiac GMT. With the release of the two new models, that feeling comes back stronger than ever.

The new Zodiac Super Sea Wolf GMT

It’s been a while since we have seen new Super Sea Wolf GMT models from Zodiac. The last one was the Blueberry limited edition that Thomas covered in 2022. We have also seen a Super Sea Wolf GMT World Time that the brand created with Rowing Blazers, which Lex wrote about late last year. It’s a cool watch, but I prefer the GMT over the World Time models. I prefer the look of the bicolor bezel, and it’s also a lot less busy with a 24-hour scale compared to the different city names. So I was happy to see the two regular GMT models return to the lineup. They come with a new movement and different bracelets, so there is plenty to talk about.

Let’s look at some specs. Both watches come with the familiar 40mm stainless steel case that is 13.6mm thick and just under 48mm from tip to tip. It has a predictable 20mm lug spacing as well as a 200m water resistance rating. For both new models, the case is fitted with a five-row bracelet that most of us know as a Jubilee-style bracelet. It gives the watches a cool look because it fits the retro aesthetics well.

The first of the two models has a silver sunburst dial with applied markers and white lume for reading the time in the dark. The dial features a date window at 3 o’clock, the logo at 12, and the characteristic script font on the top and bottom halves. The four hands that make up the characteristic handset hover over the dial. The first two are baton-style hands in stainless steel for hours and minutes. The third is a baton-style hand executed in bright red with a white tip. Lastly, the thin seconds hand with a lumed rectangular portion matches the other three hands perfectly.

The dial combines a rotating bezel with a black and gray insert. It features a 24-hour scale with white markings, so it contrasts nicely with both colors of the bezel insert. The luminous triangle on the bezel is a nice detail that adds a touch of green to the overall color scheme. I have to say that this version of the Super Sea Wolf GMT looks very stylish. It’s a step away from the bold colors, so this could very well be your new daily wearer.

The second model comes with bold colors that characterize the models I mentioned earlier. It features a black dial with applied markers and contrasting white lume. The handset is the same as on the first model. The only exception is the GMT hand, which is executed in bright pink. It matches the bright pink and white bezel insert. It’s another one of those wild color combinations that is far from conventional but looks brilliant.

I am not afraid of a bit of color when it comes to sneakers or clothing, so this new model is right up my alley. But is it a daily wearer? I would say it’s less so than the other model in black and gray. But as a summer watch, this is another surprise. A nice detail is the text on the bezel, which is black on the white part and white on the pink part. The lumed triangle marking 24 hours is white and lights up in darker light conditions. I have to say that my first thought when I saw this model was, “Zodiac did it again!” The brand has always had the guts to come up with color combinations that other brands often avoid, and I love that. As a result, these two new models make for a perfect pair of GMTs.

The new STP 7-20 GMT caliber

Hidden behind the closed case back of both watches, you will find the new STP 7-20 GMT caliber, which replaces the previous Soprod C125. As most of you know, STP is the movement manufacturer of the Fossil Group, of which Zodiac is a part. This newly developed automatic movement operates at 28,800vph and has 26 jewels and a 40-hour power reserve. It is also a caller GMT, so it lets you independently set the 24-hour GMT hand.

I am curious to learn more about this new caliber as this is the first regular-production model equipped with it. In a time when the focus lies heavily on flyer-style GMT movements, my first feeling is that this could be a missed opportunity for Zodiac and STP to develop an affordable flyer-style option that would have made these two new releases even better. Without getting a watchmaker’s opinion, it seems as though this new caliber is more about bringing the movement production in-group than about offering any particular technical advantages.

Final thoughts on the new Zodiac Super Sea Wolf GMTs

After seeing the pictures of both of these watches, I immediately thought I would love to take them for a spin. They both look attractive although completely different. But that should make a hands-on experience even more fun. My first impression is that the black and gray model is the better daily wearer that looks super stylish. But the black, white, and pink model brings the crazy goodness I love.

Both watches will come on a Jubilee-style bracelet with a butterfly clasp. Additionally, both will be available as regular-production models for US$1,995 on the brand’s website. That price is in line with the previous Super Sea Wolf GMT releases.

Considering the build quality and attractive styling we know from Zodiac, these watches seem like great options for a GMT under €2K. Whether you’re searching for a more refined GMT or a colorful knockout, Zodiac has you covered. Both are great reminders of the brilliance of the Super Sea Wolf GMT. These two new releases have me properly excited, and I hope that with the new movement, we will see more releases like these two new models.
