Give someone special the gift of time, with a Zodiac watch that will last a lifetime. I have to tell you this story; on our wedding day my wife gave me a Zodiac watch and I treasure that gift everyday.
Now I’m going to tell you how long ago that was, we were married in 1973. My Zodiac watch is 42 years old and I still wear it today. This one is automatic so it has no battery; it winds with the movement of my wrist.
The company is based in Switzerland and was founded in 1882 by Ariste Calame. His son took over the business in 1895. Ariste’s passion from the beginning was to create the most precise time piece of all time. His company became one of the fastest growing companies in Switzerland. In 1930 they designed the first automatic sports watch.
In 1953 Zodiac introduced the first dive watch called the Sea Wolf. In the early 1970’s they introduced the Super Sea Wolf which was adopted by the United States Navy Seals.
Well now Zodiac doesn’t just produce dive watches; they also have a beautiful line of men’s watches that anybody would be proud to own.
The watches have a patented crown and stem with a sturdy case back design. So they are produced to last. I can surly back that one up, as I said 42 years and still going strong.
So give the gift of time, you won’t regret it, the watches are pricey but in my opinion they are well worth the investment, as it may be the last watch you’ll ever have to buy. Maybe you would like to get yourself a gift, or you might collect fine watches, this would be a nice add to your collection.
