18 Months In
« on: December 04, 2017, 11:29:27 PM »
Eighteen months ago, I was scouring the net for an Olangapo band for a diver I had and ran across an article about the soldier, navy seals and the culture that made the performance dive watch resurge in popularity.  The author commented on how amazing certain watches look on these handmade cuff style bands, including Roleys, Omegs AND Vintage Zodiac Divers.  I looked further into it, and well... I was hooked.  After 18 months, my collection has grown and I consider all of them a part of my Zodiac story.
Thanks to good advice, and help with the restoration of some cool pieces (THANKS BWG!), I am getting better and know that "Vintage Zodiac collecting is not for the Meek".  Here are the 19 members placed in my care so far.
 
Cheers !!!

And you need to add some diamonds to the collection like classic Sea Wolves.

I have never been able to find one of these at a price I was willing to pay. This is one of my favs! Although that band is a real hair puller.

Hey guys!, thanks for all your support and information, it has got me through a lot of "duh" moments.  Yuri,,,, diamonds?,, come on !! LOL   Butch, the SST, I just stumbled on cheap, tags box and tags.  The stretch bands can be pretty much for looks, because after a couple days, theres no hair left on the wrist!  Still parts shopping for my Bezel-less GMT so I will be keeping at it to bring my GMT #2 into the collection.  Cheers!

This is my "62 Caddy" (Glorious), which after BWG intervention, is RoCkIn !!
