ZODIAC






MILESTONES

Ariste Calame sets up a workshop to produce specialized watches that later became known as ZODIAC. The son of a watchmaker, Calame was obsessed with the thought of creating the most precise watch of all time. The result of his careful work became the first ZODIAC—a pocket watch with a unique character. Thus begins the foundation for a whole series of technical wonders in the world of Swiss watches. Because of its high quality and technical innovations, Calame’s dynasty managed to become one of the fastest-growing companies in Switzerland.

The Zodiac Sea Dragon:
A Marriage Between
Heritage and Modernity



 

Zodiac has been creating timepieces, which are also works of art, since 1882. Although business and ownership haven’t been without interruption, the knowledge and mechanical innovations that Zodiac brings to the table have been carried over the decades, and indeed the centuries. The brand belongs now to the Swiss manufacturing branch of Fossil Group.This is made evident in the company’s attention to technical and aesthetic details. This iconic brand is behind some of the finest (and most rugged) pocket watches—and later—wristwatches; the world has ever known. The Sea Dragon is a splendid addition to this long and proud line of watchmaking.

While looking to the heritage for inspiration, and forging ahead at the same time, Zodiac has reimagined the classic design of the Sea Dragon. The result is a combination of beauty and nostalgia with precision and modernity. Perfect for lovers of stylish, old school watches, as well as those who look towards the future.  



The Sea Dragon, with its simple yet elegant design, offers watch connoisseurs Swiss-made perfection, the option of a colored dial, plus the choice of a high-quality leather strap or a lovely three-link stainless steel bracelet. Coming in gold, rose or stainless steel case plating, the Sea Dragon features a customized branded rotor and an anti-reflective sapphire crystal with 3-hand date STP 1-11 automatic movement.

This new take on a traditional watch keeps the sporty appeal of its ancestors while catering to the tastes of modern consumers. The timepiece is slim enough to appeal to modern fashion sensibilities, yet still retains the charm and practical aspects of the original. Water resistant to 100 meters (10 ATM), with a 20 mm lug and a 40 mm case, plus a screw-down crown, this timepiece is useful, a breeze to operate, and makes a wonderful addition to your overall wardrobe. The colorful dial face, as well as the markers — split between two colors — add to the chronometer’s affable appeal without detracting from its sophisticated appearance.

The Sea Dragon’s functionality and robust construction, combined with its arresting silhouette, strike the perfect balance between honoring the lineage from which it hails, and looking forward toward the days to come. If you’re on the hunt for a luxury timepiece with an exceptionally rich history, the Sea Dragon just might be the watch for you.
