Haters going to hate. I think mine is epic. Just dont like the bezel that much on the Zodiac, otherwise its not bad if you are picking it up for around $500.

The Oris crystal is a sight to behold...

The black dial Zodiac ZO9201 is reduced from 1295$ to 550$, while the same watch with silver dial ZO9200 is still offered for full price. I'm not sure about the reasons of that offer, but if ever there was an easy answer to such a Seawolf vs. Oris questions it's now. The Seawolf has an elegant design, which is still modern today.

Having just received my Zodiac today...I would vote Oris, just for the fact that the Zodiac clasp is the most horrific thing ever designed by man or devil.
Thanks for the reminder! Forgot about that clasp issue.

Not sure what Watchstation is doing with their pricing but good news for buyers!

Can anybody who has either of these comment on any crown dig? I seem to be pretty sensitive to that.

Is it the butterfly type? I'm not a fan of those.

I'm not usually a white dial guy but this Zodiac white dial with the green C3 lume has my interest, just don't know if the 40mm size will work. I sold my Oris 40mm due to it's small size.

It's a 2 piece foldover, the foldover part only opens to 90 degress, which makes it tough to couple or uncouple - for me anyway.

very interested in the wrist size of the guys who flipped the 65 because of size. I have a 7 inch wrist and think it is perfect. In the weeks leading up to purchasing it, I was wearing a 45mm and 42mm watch regularly. I actually think it looks a little bigger than 40mm due to the thin bezel.

I have a 7 in. wrist and for whatever reason the 40mm 65 just felt a little smallish, traded it for the 42mm 65. The 42mm 65 feels better although I still like the 40mm dial design. The 40mm dial in 42mm case would be awesome! I like Oris as a brand.

Interesting, I guess it all comes down to what "feels" right and that is very difficult to quantify sometimes.

Does anyone know where to buy the Zodiac from Canada? I contacted watch station (both US and Canada) and they can't do a thing...I've had this watch on my radar for a very long time. Kinda frustrated to not be able to buy it anywhere. (And with the sale price...I'm gonna miss this and it sucks.) Thank you...
