The Zodiac Watches story began in 1882 when Ariste Calame opened shop in Le Locle, Switzerland. He had an ambition to create interesting and unique watches of superior quality and reliability under the new banner of Zodiac Watches. Ariste’s watch making expertise was actually a family tradition since his father was also a highly talented watch making craftsman.
Zodiac Watches focused their attention on the growing interest in sports watches made specifically to withstand physical activity with dependable durability. In 1930 the company introduced the first automatic sports watch with much acclaim and became very popular among athletes and adventurers. Zodiac Watches immediately followed that up with the Zodiac Autographic which the company touted as “the world’s most modern watch”. This innovative timepiece boasted a self winding mechanism with a power reserve gauge, a radium dial, an unbreakable crystal, and proved to be water and shock resistant, quite revolutionary at the time. Its extraordinary functionality caught the eyes of government industry and became the official watch of the Swiss Federal Railways. Zodiac Watches still keeps this iconic watch in production today and it remains very much in demand among watch buyers everywhere.
The Zodiac Sea Wolf, another prominent model in the Zodiac Watches repertoire, was the official watch of the U.S. Navy Seals. It was the first Swiss made analog quartz wristwatch with a waterproof resistance up to 1000 meters and an oversized face which made it easy to handle when wearing gloves. This coupled with the Zodiac Watches commitment to its integrity is what endeared it to the Navy.
