 :wehe :ur :welc :welc   pete,looks like it is real to me, i  think you got a fantastic buy since this looks like the seldom seen two tone model sea wolf. the bracelet is worth $100 + buy its self!  i just dont know why the lume is black, i have NEVER seen a SW lume turn black!!! so it was one of our members who got it, i think that is great, and i had already done a post about this very watch. our watchmaker can make it look like new and especially give it a good tuneup. i hope the bracelet is full lenght, it should have 21-22 links not counting the ends that fasten it to the watch. too bad the end caps are not original BUT they DO LOOK GOOD!!! you may never find original end caps, be happy these work and look acceptable. GOOD BUY, wear it and enjoy it. i cant tell from the pics, are the hands and dial markers gold color?

well i am happy enough that i got the watch and im glad i got something a little bit different for my first sea wolf anyway.
thanks very much ill keep the watch maker in mind

the watch is 260 dollars which works out about 160 pounds

also i wont be lending this watch to my dad he lost my zodiac glorious so he owes me a little money which im going to put towards my next watch lol

im from northen ireland also looking at a few other sea wolfs on the internet cheap ones that are a little rough around the edges would really like to get the orange face/ and bezel models btw how hard is it to source parts would even need to be n.o.s but salvage from other watches like finding crowns and bezels etc
