Was my Seawolf sold at PX?
« on: December 22, 2012, 03:20:39 AM »
Hi all
I was wandering if it is possible to verify if a Seawolf (or more generally a Zodiac) was sold at a PX.
Is there a way to make some search given a case number?
thanks a lot
regards
Morgan

no way to know, they were the same watches as were sold every place. i bought my black dial SW with date at the PX in fort benning georgia in may 1968, while i was in basic army training. $55.00 !!!! i do still have it and less than a year ago BWG did a cleaning/ restoration for me. there is NO serial number list to date the zodiacs, the catalogs available here are the best ID info we can get.

yeah, it WAS expensive, a wind up timex watch was about $12.00 ! i wore one all through basic training and didnt wear the zodiac until i got to my duty station, didnt want to mess up my new "BIG" divers watch. it attracted a lot of attention, it was considered a big watch then.
