First introduced to the watchmaking scene in the 1980s, ceramic is scratch-resistant, corrosion-resistant, fade-resistant, and hypoallergenic. Ceramic’s strong resistance to oxidation, abrasions and colour fading means your watch will look new for decades. Complemented by a sky blue rubber strap, the classic brushed stainless steel case holds ZODIAC’s iconic Swiss-made STP 1-11 automatic movement.

In a competitive market for dive watches, ZODIAC stands apart from other watch manufacturers with its fearless use of colour. As early as the 1960s, ZODIAC was producing watches with unusual colour combinations, such as pale blue for the bezel against a bright neon orange and black dial that jumped out among the sea of mostly conservative all-black dive watches at the time.
ZODIAC was built on value and volume during its golden era from the ’50s to the ’70s. The watches provided an affordable tool that could stand up to the circumstances the adventurous wearers often found themselves in, be it diving, racing, or crawling through the jungle. Modern ZODIAC doesn’t stray from that formula, and the watches put forth a very strong value proposition. Swiss Technology Production (STP), Fossil Group’s in-house movement manufacturer, supplies movements for many ZODIAC watches. In addition, the modern designs are tasteful and thoughtful interpretations of the watches that built the ZODIAC name and forged its reputation as a reliable tool watchmaker.
