Taking a page out of the apex of colorful vintage dive watch design in the late Sixties and early Seventies, the ‘Rally’ was inspired by one of the rarest, but most sought-after references in the vintage Zodiac catalog, which earned its moniker from the racy, checkered flag-style bezel.
As colorful and historically interesting as these bezels are, this Rally timepiece has been modernized with a scratch-resistant mineral glass bezel, and updated with a few details exclusive to Topper; like a red-tipped seconds hand which was custom-manufactured to match the “shovel” style hour and minute hands, and color-matched detailing on the dial.
We are thrilled to present this Sea Wolf ‘Rally’ Limited Edition in two colorways: a black dial with a yellow bezel and matching dial accents, and a beautiful blue ‘dégradé’ dial, which exhibits a bright blue sunburst at the center that darkens as it travels to the edge of the dial. Don’t let the vibrant vintage aesthetic and slim case proportions fool you though–each of these Sea Wolf Limited Editions honor the tool watch expression of their predecessors by featuring screw-down crowns and casebacks with a water resistance of an ample 200 meters.
This Sea Wolf ‘Rally’ Topper Edition is fitted with Zodiac’s excellent vintage-style jubilee bracelet, which features individual center beads, and an equally clever spring-loaded clasp, adjusting automatically to your wrist 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 has a few extra upgrades, such as the perlage on the base plates and bridges, as well as a swan neck regulation system for added long-term servicing and stability.
