I saw this Zodiac on the Internet... / Re: RARE, how rare?

Judging from the bid activity and the closing price, I would call it rare. I don't see too many Zodiacs of any style sell for near $900 in open auction.

Good discussion. Learned a few things. Personally, not a fan of the acrylic resin bezels.

So I've worn it all week and other than still being a bit snug it's OK.
Still not as comfy as my daily wear but I'm working on it.!!

I was going to correct the misnomer as soon as I saw it, but considered how rampant a falsehood it is I just didn't bother.  .01% of vintage watches actually have bakelite inserts in the bezel.  Most notably the Rolex 6542.  Bakelite could not withstand the damage a watch is subjected to. 

Otherwise, watch bezel inserts are most commonly acrylic.  It can be damaged, but is overall much more durable.

Agree, it is incorrect term. I prefer to call it just Plastic.

Yuriy, what indicates that it's for a bakelite?

It is from early 1970s. It is the Bakelite era.

this leads me to another question why do you call it bakelite...isn't it an acrylic?

Butch, wouldn't be the first or last time that's true.  ;D Thanks for the correction.

That's a seawolf box. I'm going to guess 1960s era. The later seawolf boxes had a graphic of a diver (see 202715281294 under closed auctions for an example). Overpriced. Seen the box + all tags go for $150-$200 range.

You have it backwards.
