The 1960s and ‘70s were very much television-inspired decades in terms of design, and this is reflected by the dial of the Sea Dragon Automatic Chronograph by Zodiac, with its lovely TV-shaped subdials and the cushion shape of the case. The watch is made in two limited-edition versions, each of just 82 pieces. It’s a large piece, 50 mm in length and 42 mm in width, with a case that is water-resistant to 10 bar, 100 metres. Both are COSC certified, guaranteeing excellent timekeeping precision. The movement is the ETA Valjoux 7750, providing 48 hours power reserve.
