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!

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. 

Learned something.  I thought Sea Wolf movements were all 17-jewel.

Watch Stories / A sea wolf returning to life slowly

Thanks for organizing this great site!  I recently came across this Sea Wolf.  I knew nothing about this brand and have come here for information and to post this piece of history for those who enjoy these.   I came across this while responding to a craigslist ad for watch tools and parts.  I overhaul watches (mostly seiko vintage) as a challenging hobby which I am progressing slowly.  I bought the entire lot of parts although I wanted only 1 tool because he wanted to get rid of all.  It is mostly parts for 50/60's era parts, mainly Bulova and the like, with mainsprings, crystals, gaskets, etc.  He threw in a coffee can of junker watches.  He grabbed this watch out, and said it was his, purchased in the Navy while stationed in the far east, said it might still work, and put it back in the can.  He said he last wore it in the late 60's.  He said he used to repair the guys watches in the Navy as well.   Most of the others were junkers, but I felt it might be nice to save this one, so I looked online and found this site.  Here is the info on this watch.
SN 1626543, Caseback Model 722-916, Movement marked 70-72 21 jewels adjusted.  The movement plate is marked 57192.  The caseback has a service scribe from 6-66, which the gentleman said was done by him.  It does not hack.  The watch has been overhauled now and runs well.   I am looking for one part (3rd wheel part number 211) to properly finish the job, the crown is bent, and need a new crystal.   It's nice to know the history of the watch and makes it worth saving.  Here are some pictures.  Thanks!

They do not appear in the catalogs I have until 1975.

Thanks for the information.

It may not be 1968 that is just when he was in Taiwan. My Dad retired in 1969 and could have bought it at the PX at Maxwell AFB after he retired. I wore it to Afghanistan in his honor. My Dad went to Watch and Jewelry repair school on the GI bill after retirement. So I wasn't sure if he modified it.

What year do you think it is?

Thanks

While that 1968 a little early for this model, it appears to be all original. In the catalogs there are several different versions of this model. Not being nasty but you would have found it here if you had explored a little.

Nice piece of history and family heirloom there.

General Zodiac Discussion / Vintage Zodiac with modern movement.
« Last post by denennym on January 06, 2018, 01:07:23 PM »
I know this my be sacrilegious here but is there an modern automatic movement that would fit a vintaged Zodiac Seawolf case, dial and hands? Also I have a watch that my Father left me when he passed away. He was in the Airforce and stationed in Taiwan in 1968 not sure if it is real or a fake. I sent it to be repaired and serviced a couple of years ago and the face was replaced. The bezel is original (to this watch) but I've never seen a Zodiac of that vintage with the exact same bezel. I haven't opened the case to look at the movement. My question is, is it a fake or real? I've owned the watch since 1977. Thanks in advance for any information.
