Title: Zodiac Goldenline from BWG
Post by: zaniac on May 25, 2010, 03:40:10 PM
Well, I finally got around to taking some pictures of my Goldenline that BWG repaired nearly a year ago. The outer ring around the dial was literally green with something(mold?). Now look at it 8) He also repaired it, though I forget which piece he replaced. Also a new crystal. I've seen a couple other Goldenline's and they always seem to have the lion jumping over the sun on the back. Unique.

Very nice classic watch.  Clean, uncluttered dial.  Is the lion and sun motif a play on words, perhaps?  Golden Lion?  Did Zodiac have a sense of humor back in the day?  Interesting........TJW

Hmm, interesting thought, TJW! Golden Lion. Maybe? I never thought of that possibility.
It would be interesting to find out why Zodiac put the lion and sun on the back. Especially since it's the only Zodiac line I've seen them on. Oh well, another Zodiac mystery ;)
