Prep purveyor Rowing Blazers has linked with Swiss watchmakers Zodiac to craft a limited-edition Super Sea Wolf timepiece celebrating the oldest cocktail bar in Europe, Harry’s Bar. The watch, limited to just 282 units, will debut during a special event at Harry’s Bar during Paris Men’s Fashion Week.
The honorary Super Sea Wolf flaunts a co-branded bottle green dial decorated with Harry’s signature “bar flies” cartoon iconography. Arriving with both Zodiac’s staple five-link stainless steel bracelet and a French military-style #tide strap made from 100% recycled ocean plastic, the timepiece operates inside a 40mm stainless steel case with STP 1-11 automatic movement and a water resistance rating of 20 ATM.
“Harry’s New York Bar is everything we aspire to be at Rowing Blazers: inclusive and unassuming, charmingly ridiculous, but with a hint of old-world glamour and a deep appreciation for history — all while remaining inventive, creative, and innovative,” said Rowing Blazers founder and creative Jack Carlson. “I’m excited to work with one of my favorite watch brands, Zodiac, to create this limited-edition watch celebrating one of my favorite bars. It’s rare and special to bring together three like-minded brands like this.”
“Zodiac Timepieces have always stood for fun, yet serious tool watches,” added vintage watch expert Eric Wind, who worked with Rowing Blazers to design the Super Sea Wolf. “The company’s vintage models, often featuring an amazing array of colors, are some of my favorite watches to collect and wear. The new Harry’s Bar Watch is our take on that tradition, with an eye-catching dial in a highly-wearable case.”
The Zodiac x Rowing Blazers Super Sea Wolf will be available later this month on Rowing Blazers’ website, Zodiac Watches’ website and at select retailers, including the Rowing Blazers NYC flagship, for $1,595 USD. Take a look at the design in the gallery above.
