Zodiac Sea Wolf sign crowns
« on: June 14, 2010, 12:51:52 AM »
I was hoping hte hive could answer this question.  Got a nice no-date acrylic bezel zodiac sea wolf but the crown is unsigned. 

Was hoping to restore it back to a signed zodiac crown.  Figure hte only way is to do a switcharro with a metal-bezel zodiac sea wolf.  Questin is are the crowns interchangeable?

Thanks for any help

Yes, but why not send it in for a service and have a new signed crown placed on it?

Butch, will Fossil's service dept work on those at all, do they even have parts?  Or did you mean your Zodiac guy I've been hearing such good things about?

Fossil sends every Vintage Zodiac inquiry to me as they have no parts and do not want to deal with them.
