The ‘White Wolf’ ref. ZO9208 marks the very first time Zodiac’s 40mm stainless steel compression case and ‘flag dial’ (denoted by the four raised triangle hour markers) has ever been fitted with a mineral glass bezel. This unique combination was inspired by co-designer Eric Singer’s favorite Zodiac watches in the archive, which exhibited colorful Bakelite bezels, often faded to a ghost-white after prolonged sun exposure.
Exclusive to Topper Jewelers, this is the first stainless steel Sea Wolf to feature a no-date flag dial and perfectly symmetrical markers. The White Wolf is eminently wearable in its 40mm case, featuring a 20mm lug width, and a thickness of only 13mm. It is equipped with Zodiac’s newest ‘rivet’ style three-link bracelet, which is fitted with a pair of expanding links next to the clasp that use springs to self-adjust throughout the day.
This Sea Wolf is powered by Zodiac’s automatic STP3-13-3 calibre. This is a no-date movement which lends a nice uninterrupted symmetry to the dial. However, a closer look reveals it’s also a Swiss-made COSC-certified chronometer with 44 hours of reserve power, and a few extra upgrades like perlage on the base plates and bridges, as well as a swan neck regulation system for added long-term servicing and stability.
