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?

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.

It used to be a Sea Wolf in 722 966B case from mid 1970s. Movement for this model was - Zodiac 72B.
In this particular watch:
- Case and bezel are original. Bezel needs restoration;
- Dial is refinished (redial);
- Not original crown;
Why do you think the movement was replaced by modern automatic?
It is almost impossible to fit a dial to other movement with date complication (due to different lags and date aperture layouts) without serious mangling.

Learned something.  I thought Sea Wolf movements were all 17-jewel.
Believe the movement is transplant from other Zodiac (most likely costume watch).

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 !!

Welcome to the Forum!  Fun first post.  Hope you keep us posted on how the Sea Wolf is coming. 

Thanks for the photos too.  That one looks worth restoring for sure.
