Well, does anyone know what the codes mean? Dates serviced? Serviced by who? Why cross the codes out?

General Zodiac Discussion / Zodiac watch case backs
« Last post by denennym on January 19, 2018, 11:09:02 AM »
I have a question. What is the etched writings and numbers on the inside of the back of the watch case. Sometimes they're number or numbers and letters and some times they are crossed out. Does watch makers/repaires engrave a code on the back? Do they have something to do with services?

General Zodiac Discussion / Re: Vintage Zodiac with modern movement.
« Last post by YuriyV on January 15, 2018, 04:49:29 PM »
I see. Yes, it is common practice to use the same movement from donor watch if original is rusted or not repairable. Any Zodiac 72B can be used. Preferably with the same number of jewels and the in same grade/finish. 
But your Sea Wolf has a good movement and does not need replacement.

I didn't think the movement was replaced with a new movement. I was asking a question if there is a new movement that you could use to put in a vintaged sea wolf if the old movement was unrepairable.

I have since my last post, opened the watch pictured and it is exactly as you have said it is a 72B movement in a 722-966B case.

I need to have it repaired and refurbished is this something that BWG would be interested in doing?

Watch Stories / Re: A sea wolf returning to life slowly

Of course, it is possible that the movement was replaced.  But since this came from the original owner and wasn't worn since the sixties, I think it is unlikely.  Unless he swapped it at the service date in 66 for some reason (it's the owners scribe marks on the caseback), after that it came out of service till now so there would be no opportunity to replace the movement.

General Zodiac Discussion / maybe a modified model 4553?
« Last post by brent on January 14, 2018, 11:46:50 PM »
I am the proud new caretaker of a 50 year old zodiac that looks like a chronograph model 4553 (based on purchase of access to historic catalogs, thanks Butch!) except it has pushers like models 4551, 4552, 4555, 4556, 4557, 4558 and so on.

The original owner, a buddy of mine, says that he purchased the watch in 1968 or so. Anyone have a definite model identification on this model?  See photos.
