Finally figured out what the problem is. Posting from either my Mac or iPhone, if I use any punctuation other than commas, full stops or question or exclamation marks, the rest of the post from there, gets cut off. If I take these marks out then it works fine, so it must be something in the Mac coding for these glyphs that the forum doesnt like. At least I can work around this now.

As Butch is keen on telling us, being an informed Zodiac enthusiast makes the whole experience much easier and enjoyable. I thought it might be worthwhile sharing this listing for a Sea Wolf, that I came across on an auction website in the UK. Some serious condition issues are readily apparent even with such poor images. The lume in the hands has deteriorated badly and is probably in the movement, the movement itself is not square in the case, is that a rust spot between 7 and 8?, and most entertainingly, it appears to have gained a date wheel from a Zodiac with a 6 oclock date aperture. (It will be fine as long as you are lying down.) It has obviously seen better days, and even with a half decent looking bezel and an original bracelet, 580-640 Sterling is a very punchy estimate from the auctioneer. The description is not very accurate either with its suggestion of a screw-in caseback.
Buyer beware is about right.

Apologies Butch. I shall post a link to it instead.

Congrats to your son. You are right on most counts. They were cheaper than that in the military PXs.

Offering an almost New Old Stock Stocker & Yale Sandy 590 Flag dial watch that I picked up  in the late 90's. I bought 3 or 4 as they weren't very popular at the time. Came without a band or battery. Still have one that I wear pretty often. Found this one in one of my watch boxes, still without strap or battery. Also missing the battery cover. Took several months, but I finally found the battery cover in another box when I was looking for an original Seiko 6105 dial & movement. New battery was installed a couple of weeks ago, been running & keeping good Quartz time since. Date works & changes like it should. I installed a NOS black period correct US Military issue strap that might have been issued with it.
Only 2 flaws I noticed. Small scratch on crystal @ 7, only noticeable in certain light. Still very presentable. Small chunk out of the battery cover. When worn, it is unseen, but if you take it off to show the US Military Issue markings, it will be seen.
I have always heard these were made exclusively for one of the US Military Academies. Seemed logical to me. Stocker & Yale had a US Government Military Contract for watches from the early 1980's thru sometime in the 1990's.

Just a little Trivia:
Chuck Norris wore a Stocker & Yale Sandy watch in several of his movies. Not sure which ones, since I watch them all & more than once !


I quote from one of the worlds leading experts on US Issued Military Watches:
"The SandY with Flag Dial was routinely issued to army personnel, and I have seen many service men and women wearing it."
His contact information on request.

After 9-11 the Flag dialed Sandy 590 became a very hot commodity , expensive & hard to find.
I still occasionally wear mine very proudly.

Hello :)
My first post here. Im in love with Zodiacs as much as you all:)
Especialy 36000;)

I have got a question. Is always SST menas its 36000vps?

It's been a few years since I've posted, in the meantime I'm proud to announce that my son has joined the US Navy, and completed his boot camp and dive prep training and finally graduated from the Panama City, FLA NDSTC last June 2017 and has joined the team of US Navy Divers around the world, currently stationed overseas at US Naval Station Bahrain, due to be home at Norfolk soon after completing his first overseas tour of duty. So proud of him, he's worked incredibly hard to become a Navy Diver and has had his ass beat hard during his training. This historic watch will be his someday. It is my understanding that the Seawolf was popular in the Vietnam era among SEALS and Divers due to the availability at Navy exchanges for around $100 at the time and was the only watch in that day to have a 200m depth rating. I'll stand corrected if this is untrue but this is what I've read.
