 :what :wtf  i am with you, i thought i had seen them all, BUT........ this is a 1970s sea wolf and someone has tried to relume it, zoom in on dial. the red bezel just doesnt look right, from what i have seen/heard the plastic insert is about impossible to remove and re do. maybe someone has figured out HOW to do it. markings LOOK factory. i bet BUTCH/ UV  will jump in to solve this mystery!!

This is the 2nd one like this I have seen now. Reaffirms that I don't like it.

HUMMMM, maybe just a difference in the lighting but the gallery watch looks orange and the ebay one looks red! these are new to me, i am with you Butch, not the best looking sea wolf i have seen!! cant wait to see what it goes for. i do kinda like the ones that had the red or yellow checkerboard bezels, looks KOOL.

I'm with you Jon; the lume on the dial just looks funky. Like it was smeared on.  And yes Butch; I don't need to see this one again to know I don't like it. Once is enough for me!  :what

Butch,
Thanks for walking us back in time. That entire thread was an enjoyable and informative read even though we got off track toward the end.
