General Zodiac Discussion / Zodiac Hermetic Chronograph - need some help
« Last post by Blubarb on April 22, 2018, 11:06:34 PM »
Hi all

I need some help to get a ballpark date on this Zodiac Chrono. I have trawled through the catalogues and couldn't find a reference to it, but knowing my scanning process I could have missed it  :rolleyes;  though I don't think so...I hope not...

Anyway, any info would be really appreciated. The watch is fully functional and runs well.

I am afraid these are the only pictures I have until it arrives.


Thanks for the participation. Please review the rules and take the appropriate action on that picture if applicable.

Additionally, the paint on the bezel was originally orange and is easily fixed.
Yes, I'm sure.
Are you 100% sure? It has the early Zodiac
It is original. Early 1781 B model. 722 916 case. Markers on bezel used to be on orange color.
Hmm... my post was cut? It has an early Zodiac
This is my first post, so I hope I get it right:)
I'm a noob with Zodiac, but would like to have one of these beautiful watches. I can purchase this SeaWolf 1781 (see pic) with metal bezel, not bakelite. Is it an original or a frankenwatch? The seller claims it to be an early model, but did the 1781 come with metal bezel at all? I can't find anything on the net concerning this.

Hey Cobber.  Yes, somewhere in 1979-1980 is when A Schild became part of ETA, which coincides when Zodiac began using ETA movements instead of the AS calibers they had previously.  I am sure there was some lag, as they would have used any old stock built up first, but it was ETA focused from then.

The first Super Seawolf using an ETA movement was the model with the compression dial and gray/white bezel.  I do not have a pic of it on my computer, but I am sure you know which one I am referring to.

I believe I follow what you guys are saying: 
The 1977 Spanish catalog has a Super Sea Wolf U.V. described.
So, the first gen EPSA SSW had a slight case build shift that more or less coincided with their shift to ETA and those may have been supplied by Squale or EPSA and for the sake of this conversation we're considering those to be second gen. SSWs

Thanks Butch and U.V.

Agreed. Not counting the chrono.

Thanks U.V.,
I think I understand this correctly.
 1) For 79-80, you're referring to the year A. Schild merged with ETA and not a numerical movement designation.
 2) The first Super Sea Wolfs with an ETA movement were the ones G. Monnier intro'd in the early nineties with the saw tooth bezel.

I am not sure if Butch agrees, but I would consider the Saw Toothed 90s models the 3rd gen Super Seawolf.
