Sea Wolf in Canada
« on: January 28, 2010, 11:32:36 PM »
Not sure if you guys have seen this one yet... it's from a dealer in London, Ontario  Canada. 1960's Sea Wolf complete with the original stretch bracelet, hang tags and box.

He actually has a few serviced Zodiacs including a Spacetronic.

I agree, that Moonphase is beautiful, but $1000? Wow.

Please understand that opinions are like "noses" (or other orifices on the human body), everybody has one. I think the only reasonable price in all those links IS the Triple Date Moon Phase. Just my 2 cents though.

 :( i could kick myself for sure, about 6 months ago a collector friend offered me a beautiful moon phase in perfect condition--both machanical and appearance-- for $450.00. i had some other things going on at the time and i passed it by.it was the gold plated case in unmarked condition with a vivid color moon dial. most i  see are all faded out. well, thats my " the one that got away " story. hind sight is always 20/20. after i thought about it a while he had already traded it off.

Yep I agree. After a Sea Wolf and an Astrographic 2000, I think this might be 3rd on my list of Zodiacs to pick up!

the prices are obscene on most of his pieces, easily three to four times market value.

The orange Seawolf has a redone dial, not a bad job and he does admit it, but the bezel isn't original either.  It should have orange markers not the red one which was a NOS item available some time thru ebay. 

The moonphase has a restored dial as well as he stated.

$495 for a spacetronic in okay shape that he'd be lucky to get $70 for on ebay.

I'd take one of rai justina's serviced beauties anyday on ebay.

I also collect Omegas, he's selling common run of the mill Seamasters for $895 that you could buy all day for $200-$250.

Hmmm....I might point this out to him and see if he'll come down to earth on his prices. Zodiacs are hard to come by in Canada though - so I can see his prices being high as a supply and demand thing. Pawn shops and vintage jewelery stores - at least in Toronto generally have no Zodiacs.

Even the current line are only available in 2 stores nationwide....
