Zodiac wristwatches come from the Swiss company of the same name. First opening its doors in 1882, the company is a great innovator and has invented many features of watches, such as the Swiss quartz movement, self-winding and reserve power functions. The brand's central focus is constant: they are high quality precision instruments for active people.The Zodiac Design Philosophy
Zodiac is committed to excellent design, creativity, innovation and reliability. They are dedicated to the adventurous, explorative lifestyle, while maintaining bold traditional and modern styles.Wristwatches for Action
Zodiac wristwatches are high-performance wristwatches for serious and professional participants in diving, racing, aviation and adventuring. There are models for men, women and unisex. If you're into action and want a tough watch but also fun style, the Zodiac sport wristwatch might suit you. You can obtain them with bright coloured straps, faces, and bezels in shades of pink, yellow, blue, purple, cream, olive, etc. There are also two-colour models with contrasting strap and watch, such as a yellow strap on a pink watch. In line with their high quality, durability and precision, Zodiac wristwatches carry a relatively high price tag. However a serious diver won't regret the investment, as your life depends upon it. If Zodiac is out of your budget range, you could seek a different brand of dive watch in a lower price range and still find a few high-end models among them.Features of Zodiac Watches
Some of the signature features of members of the Zodiac range are power reserve, self-winding ability, electronics, and very durable materials such as stainless steel, leather, silicone and even gold plating. When looking for a dive watch, check for all the key features required for official classification as a dive watch. It must function properly down to at least 100 metres, and conform to ISO standard 6245. This includes: the ability to pre-set the time to 60 minutes and lock the setting to avoid accidental changes; a 5 minute scale; clearly visible time; low battery indicator visible in low light; and pass tests of resistance to salt water, shock, external forces and thermal shock.Timeless Timepieces
Zodiacs are no ordinary watches. They are popular with collectors, and the company boasts that it designs "for the future watch collectors of the world." To meet this aim, Zodiac from time to time re-establishes modern versions of its iconic models, such as the Sea Wolf, Sea Dragon and Astrographic, and ensures new designs express special qualities that make them collectible. Arguably the most famous Zodiac wristwatch is the Astrographic, which launched in 1949 and has remained an icon of its kind. There are even limited edition, individually numbered Astrographics. Zodiacs hold their resale value quite well, due to their rugged design and construction.
